A summer lolly and some bouncing

Well our weathermen were proved to be over-excitable as usual, the 'snow storm' turned out to be about an inch that's been since washed away by the rain ;)  Rubydoo LOVES the snow and had a great time sticking her head in it and having a good roll, but I can't say it's that much fun trying to get the snow dried off her - it sticks to her wee short legs like solid clumps of cotton wool!

So for a taste of summer, I've used this cute set from MFT.  I popped my little penguin up on dimensionals and added some sparkle to his shorts and to his lollypop.  I also decoupaged the leaves.  Gold peel off line and some matching gold sequins to finish.

I always love to colour these Tiddly Inks stamps, they have the most fabulous hairdo's!  I've always fancied having long hair, but I've always been a shortie and even when I try to grow it, it's no length before I get it whacked off again!
Coloured with watercolour pencils and I added in more highlights to her hair with ordinary pencils.  Clear gloss added to the pogo stick.


  1. Two cutie cards. Love that popsicle eating penguin. And I love coloring up the Tiddly's too. That is one of my faves. Cute. I bet Ruby-Dooby-Doo is hilarious in the snow.

  2. Your summery cards were a welcome site today. While it was ok weather-wise here today, our weather people have said we are to brace for a winter storm on Monday. Guess I'd better get those groceries now! Love both your cards today. That Tiddly Inks image is so cute. I enjoy coloring them, too.

  3. Two absolutely wonderful cards on show here today Lynne I totally adore that cutie penguin enjoying the tropical island, wish I could join him, the second if gorgeous brilliantly coloured, love them both
