Passion or obsession?

IMG_1441

Someone asked me today why I liked penguins so much!! I bought my first penguin on a family holiday to Guernsey when I was seven and have been hooked ever since. I love the contrast of their colours, the white and black and a splash of orange. I love the way they waddle and admire their efforts to raise their young and to work as a co-operative for survival. My daughter says I am obsessed but I say I am passionate. When does passion become obsession? And I think it is normal to call your house Penguin Cottage and have a penguin loo seat……..:-)

I made this card using the stampset from Stampin Up called Snow Place.It is an aperture card with white glitter inside an acetetate “pocket”, so the recipient can shake it and snow will descend on the little chap inside! I added tiny pearls to the front of the card to give the effect of falling snow. I hope you like it…

I hold a papercraft class every 2nd Monday of the month in Meonstoke, where we make all sorts of cards and three dimensional projects. This month two of the projects will be cards designed especially for men. I provide all materials, cut, scored and prepped. The charge is £ 10.00 or free if you order £ 25.00 of product on the night. I also run parties in your home for your friends and can  do childrens activity parties. For more details contact me on 07881027800 or rosie@occasionalpapercrafts.co.uk. You can also order the items I used on this card or other items by clicking on an image below and you will be taken to my well stocked online shop.

Happy crafting and hope to see you soon

Love
