all you need is love

It's been a long time since I posted.  Life has been busy with family and kids and I haven't been papercrafting for quite a while now.  I do have some cards to share that I created recently for Whimsy Stamps.  I can't be on a design team right now with things being so hectic, but I had a chance to guest design for Whimsy and am excited to get to create a few cards.  I still love it when I get time to create.  It just seems to be hard to fit it in lately. 

Anyway, my first card features the adorable Penguin Proud Parents image from Crissy Armstrong.  Such an adorable image!  My patterned papers are from October Afternoon's Silent Night collection.  The die I used behind the image is the Double Scallop Doily Die.

I colored the image with copic markers.  (Sorry, I didn't write them down this time.)  Then, I added some Snow Writer from Deco Art under the image.  Love the look it adds.

The sentiment is from the All You Need is Love sentiment set released from Whimsy in January.

I hope you've all been having a great winter.  Lots of snow off an on here.  I'm ready for spring. :)

Have a great day!

What an honour, that you have chosen one of my images to use in your small window of card making time! You're amazing Niki - your colouring is always so bold and eye catching with depth and beauty. Love your card designs too - such beautiful contrasts in colour and texture. Love your snow too!
hugs, Crissy

So good to hear from you - you've been missed kiddo! This is such a great card and the penguins are so sweet. Great job as usual. Hug your babies for me and enjoy the time you have while they're little (my baby is 41 this month - how did that happen??? )
