Hi lovely blogging friends - this is just a quick post tonight as I want to make sure I don't miss entering Jules' snippets this week (Week 32).   If you haven't joined in the fun yet , you can find Jules' lovely blog at Always with a Heart HERE. If you have lots of leftover crafting snippets, then why not try it out!

I seem to be in a blue mood recently - no idea why as I have always been more of a "pink" girl!  I think this little Penguin looks very posh in his (or maybe it's a her) ornate frame and pink woollies!!

Anyhoooo here is my card recipe:-

White cardstock - SU Whisper White
Pink layer - SU Pink Pirouette
Found this piece of blue and white dotty paper in my leftover box - it's a digi but I don't know where it came from - sorry!
Pink ribbon leftovers.
Nestie Fancy Tags 2  - I've been longing to use this and it was perfect for 
the gorgeous Penguin stamp from Hero Arts - bought him last year and I love him!
I paper-pieced the hat and scarf with a tiny leftover of dotty pink paper from the Prima Sweet Fairy paper stack, and attached them with silicone glue.
Sentiment from LOTV.

Love to all, and a warm welcome to my new followers - Debby and Gail - thank you so much.
