Isn’t the weather horrible today?? It’s just damp, grey and dowdy… not nice at all!
So what is a girl todo with a couple of spare hours? ..
yep, that’s right.. lets make a card!! 😉

With today’s card I’ve managed to combine 2 challenges..

CUTE CARD THURSDAY’s theme is “Midnight Margarita’s”  so anything drink/cocktail related..
and the sketch I’ve used is a gorgeous one from SONJA over at a SPOON FULL OF SUGAR

Isn’t this little penguin too cute??
His name is Oliver and he is one of the new Krafting Kimmie stamps available at

For my card I have used the gorgeous BG Blitzen and Figgy Pudding papers, SU sentiment and punches.

Talking about Stampin Up.. There are gonna be big changes within the demo-ship of SU!
I couldn’t agree with them as it involves linking back to other craft suppliers..
This doesn’t mean that I won’t be using their product anymore.. just that I’m no longer a demo 🙂

I do have 12 brand new UK catalogues to sell,
if you would like to buy a copy they are  on special for £3.00 ea + £1 p&p
Just email me or leave me a message on this post..

Have a fabulous rest of the day,

Hugs, Marlene x

    Gorgeous card, Marlene! I love Oliver, he’s definitely one of my faves from the new release.

    When I read about the new SU rules for demos a while ago on SCS I wasn’t impressed at all. I can understand where they’re coming from, but I think they’ve maybe approached it in the wrong way. I guess time will tell!

    Wonderful card Marlene, Oliver is so cute. Love the colours and papers you have used. Not more papers I need!
    I feel the same way about SU and won’t be signing the new IDA. Only glad I hadn’t booked to the convention this weekend. May have to console myself to the NEC 😉

    oh my gosh, how I would adore this little cutie patootie, as a mom of 5, 3 whom have a dis/ ability, I say it that way because all my children have the most amazing abilities and are so smart and precious, it is very hard to afford buying at this time of year, to close for santas visit. my hopes are always trying to win one of the cuties, I just love all the new stamps I see on everyones blogs, I do get lots of stamping things just not at this time of year, and now they have so many, oh why haven’t I gotten any of these beauties..I will be telling santa what a good mommy and wife I’ve been. I told my hubby my craft room is on strike until I get me some of the cuties that are out there..I have 5 kitties my own self 3 bein new babies and I adore them all, and they are quite expensive as well, but I gots to take care of them to..Odd, my first married name was Oliver, although I’m remarried now and very very happy..Hope this is the answer your lookin for Oliver and Jinx..Good luck to all, and thanks for the chance to win
