Finally, here is the card for my brother-in-law

Hello there!

Got to be quick on this post as I have a husband with man flu and a daughter complaining of a blocked nose. My throat just started to feel sore too. Oh dear~ hope we are not all going to get this cold!!

It was my brother-in-law's birthday last Friday. After making a birthday card for no one (see last post), I used the image that I'd already coloured in last time and made him this card.

My brother-in-law loves penguins. This image is a freebie from Bugaboo Digi Stamps. Just love all the presents that the penguin is holding, particularly that ice cream on the top!!  Here is a close-up of the digi stamp.

This is the first time that I've done zig-zag faux stitches. It didn't turn out too bad, I thought!

Well, better go now to look after my poorly loving people.

A challenge or two:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday #144-43

Willow Sketchie Challenge - use ribbon or twine
I've used a blue and gold ribbon at the bottom of my card.

Have a nice evening!
