Penguins and Polar Bears for Monday

  If you think that it is just too soon to even think about Christmas, then look away now!  If, on the other hand, you are one of the brave souls out there willing to tackle the task of Christmas cards well ahead of time so that you can relax and enjoy the holidays, then this post is for you.  Christmas in June is the theme on Create and Craft / Ideal World and my show is on Monday the 28th at 6pm on Ideal World.  I am showing these two adorable stamp sets filled with penguins, polar bears and even a darling skater gal.  I think they are the perfect stamp sets  for those of you that like the idea of getting everything done early but can't actually face the traditional Christmas themed stamps yet.  If you do fit into this category, I give you Winter Fun and North Pole Friends.  I so love the cute stamps and these are right up my alley. 

Here are a few of the samples for the show.  I just love these dancing polar bears and the seal having a liitle peek at them!  One of my favourite new techniques is ribbon ruffling like I've done on this card.  I am hoping to have all of England's crafters doing it soon!  Tall task, but I'm up for it!
The second card is a fav also as I just love these cute little penguins!  There is a great paperpack on the show and I've used some of it on both of these cards.  Add a few nestibilities, some ribbon and flowers and you have yourself an adorable card!  Not traditional Christmas, but I love them.  Let me know what you think?  All for now, Sue x

Very pretty. Great for Christmas without having to deal with the traditional look, you are so right about that. I shudder at the thought of the traditional patterns right now, so this is right up my alley, so to speak.

Wonderful cards Sue - and yet more 'old' techniques that we did not know about. Great effect with the shaving foam. The cards are a little different to the norm which is great to see.
