At¬†Craft Your¬†Passion¬†this week the challenge is¬†Christmas in July.We have the fabulous¬†Crafty Sentiments¬†as our¬†sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don‚Äôt forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

This cute little fella is Christmas Penguin by Crafty Sentiments¬†¬†and he’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.For some seasonal sparkle I’ve added some tinsel to the bobble on his hat and accents of Crystal Glamour Dust to the floating ice. I’m trying to use up all my old Christmas stash up and resisting buying more…except for a few stamps and digi’s ūüėČ These are my favourite papers that I’ve been clinging onto but now it’s time to let go…The cardstock is a past purchase too.The stamp I bought earlier this year to use for the 2014 festive season.The charms I bought¬†in big bundle from eBay the year before,and I’m still ploughing through them.I’ve hung it from some jute twine – just love this stuff ūüėÄ
