Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

G'day from a very hot and sticky Sydney!

In an attempt to cool down I had to make a snowy themed Christmas card for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:




This cute little penguin is from a new set by Your Next Stamp called Waddles Winter Happiness. He looks very happy with his hot cup of coffee - perhaps he's added a tot of whisky to it to warm himself up.  Go and check out the YNS blog where they are having a Winter Wonderland themed showcase - make a comment and you could win a prize.

Over at Simon Says Stamp Monday blog, there's a snow themed challenge so I'm going to pop this little fellow over there too. I created a glittery, snowy background using a Winnie and Walter snow stencil with some gesso, then sprinkled it with glitter before it dried.

Thanks for calling by,

Claire x
