The third sponsor is to be confirmed (sorry, circumstances beyond my control) - will add details when I can.

Please visit the websites of these generous sponsors and support them - 
you will be spoiled for choice!

This is my first card using the 'Paul penguin' image kindly supplied by Robyn's Fetish digital stamps and more - you can read more about it on My Crafty Outlook here:

For my second card I've concentrated on P for presents and I've used 'Sarah's Christmas' supplied by Robyn's Fetish digital stamps and more - you can read more about it on My Crafty Outlook here:

Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week please show any Christmas card that features a penguin or anything else beginning with P ... perhaps presents, purple, pink, poinsettias, puddings ... I'm sure you can think of other ideas.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge - please add a link to your blog post (not your blog, but the actual post where your card can be found) by 22:00 UK time Friday 8 February. Please mention my blog and create a link within the post for your creation.

You can enter as many times as you wish (a good way to build up your stock of Christmas cards) and also link to any other challenges that allow you to do so, but new work only, please.

A new challenge will be set on Saturday 9 February when there will once again be three chances to win a prize, thanks to generous sponsors.

Please add your link to inlinkz. If by any chance it disappears, please leave a comment with the link to your blog post and I will make sure it is added.

  1. Many congratulations to the winners and wow another brilliant challenge Hazel and those cards are fab!! xx

  2. Great cards Hazel - and a super challenge this week.

    Why not link this tomorrow - I don't mine a quick back link esp as you just missed the Playground gates still being open. It did make things easier for me though in a way as I've totally limited entries to three so I can use the Random number thingy without having to re-jig the entry numbering.

    Off to look for penguins, parcels, paper hats, puddings etc. etc. for my entry :)

    Have a super weekend, Di xx
