Emily & Her Penguin

      I've done so much Halloween and autumn/fall this month that I decided it was time for a bit of Christmas.  I chose this Conie Fong image called "Emily and Penguin - Braids" (she also comes with curly hair instead of braids in the same set of images.)  The sentiment is also Conie Fong.

     There's still time to enter the August/September challenge but time is running out quickly.  You really should check out the Conie Fong FB page because, in addition to the challenge, you'll find an adorable freebie!  AND all her images are on sale in September so check out the store, too.

     I used water colors on the image, then cut it with a die from Tattered Lace.  The shaped card was cut with another Tattered Lace die and the front is embossed with snowflakes.  The gingham bow was hand-tied and added to the card front.  Pretty CAS for a Christmas card.  


     That's all I have for today but check back tomorrow - I think I'll have another card finished by then.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
