Some good news & a Christmas Penguin

Feeling a bit better today but still a bit emotional after the weekend's events, yesterday it just hit me like a ton of bricks & I was dreadful, but onwards & upwards as they say & feeling brighter today. My good news is that my lil' sister who is in the country at the mo from New Zealand is coming up today and staying with us until next week & I can't wait to see her, haven't seen her for 2 years and she hasn't seen this house yet as we've been in it 18 mths, so she's just the tonic I need & I'm really looking forward to spending some time with her & having a good old laugh, which we always do.

My card today is using one of the new Doodle Palace images being released this week, I loved this penguin with his ear warmers on. A really quick card to do, a bit of colouring with my SU! markers, a bit of SU! Dazzling Diamonds on the snow, some backing paper from my stash, the sentiment is SU! from the (retired) set Best Yet, all on SU! cardstock Night of Navy with a bit of glittery ribbon.

Thank you again for all the lovely messages and thanks to Lisa for sending me some lovely images to put a smile on my face - it worked hun. Will try & get round to everyone's blogs today.

Hi Jan, lovely card - the penguin image is so cute and you've colored him delightfully. So sorry about that nasty little event - it's awful to lose possessions but even worse when your everything is on your iPhone. Glad you and family are unhurt. Glad your sis is coming so you two can have some fun! Thanks for taking time to stop at my blog and write such nice things!

Hi Jan -- this Penguin card is chillingly delightful -- great colors! You'll have a good time with your Sis -- she is sure to brighten you up after your ordeal. Similar for me last week -- while working out at the YMCA, someone crashed my jeep window, took purse,credit cards, keys to house, phone, etc., etc. Yes, the important thing is no one was hurt -- everything else is just a pain!
