A Bit More Adoration

We have reached the half way point of our challenge at Path of Positivity with the optional theme of Adoration.

Those of you who know me quite well will be aware that I have a bit of an obsession with penguins which goes beyond love and I think slides into adoration! At one stage I had almost 100 penguins in various guises around the house. Sadly when we moved from our largish vicarage into a small house I had to be brave and rehome a lot of them. 

Even so I now have penguins in every room in the house except the conservatory which also acts as my husbands study and has to be penguin free. Although Christmas is a different matter when the tree goes up! There are even a couple of penguins sitting by my pond in the garden.

Just for interest I went round the house and counted up how many there are and here are the results of my survey. 

My study - 4
Bedroom - 11
Spare bedroom - 1
Bathroom - 2
Lounge/diner - 7
Kitchen - 4
Total: 29

Then there are the 2 in the garden and all the penguin socks and jumpers! At Christmas the number shoots up again for a while.

So even after an extensive re-homing programme and friends and family under instruction from my husband not to give me anymore penguins (ha like that will work!) there are still a goodly number around the place.



Materials used:
X-Press It card
blue card cut to ATC size
white printer card
Copic pens:
penguin - W3, W5, W7,W9     E40, E41, E43     RV000
beak and feet - Y11, Y15, Y17, YR14, E15 
scarf - B12, B24, B28, B29     V04, V06, V09     Y11, Y15, Y17     C0, C1, C3, C5

The banner down the side has been made up on the computer, printed out on white card and trimmed to size. The little penguin is coloured in then cut out leaving a small white edge and attached to the blue ATC card.

The challenge runs until March 1st so there is plenty of time to come and join in the fun. Remember the twist is optional focusing on Adoration. 

In order to be considered eligible for this month's prizes, remember that general types of  projects/posts will not qualify for the prizes unless they are also positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. 

Prizes this month include:
A $10.00AU gift voucher that can be redeemed for digital stamps from Beccy's Place, our guest sponsor for this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants.
ONE image (value of $5 or less) from Scribbles Designs, for the post or project that the team deems most inspiring of the bunch based on all qualifying entrants.

Path of Positivity February Challenge with Adoration

It's time for a new challenge at Path of Positivity and this month the optional theme is Adoration. There is so much you can use this theme for the most obvious is Christmas, a good incentive to start on this year's cards! This month Valentine's Day is coming up and it will not be long until Mothering Sunday.  We are expecting our first grandchild in May and there is nothing as beautiful as the look of adoration in a new born gazing up at it's mother, reflected in the eyes of the mother looking down at her child.

I think this card will be going to my husband on the 14th, the standing joke being that I do not really have any 'old flames' but he does!!




Materials used:
Beccy's Place -  A Light In The Darkness (using candle and Let your love shine sentiment)
X-Press It card
7" x 5" card blank
Versa Color inkpads - 101 Camellia, 11 Canary
Copic pens: 
candle - R22, R29, R59, C5
candlestick - Y21, Y23, Y26, YR24, Y28   
shadow - C0, C1, C3   Blender

The card base has been coloured with the Versa Color inks using sponges. I wanted it to look like candle light with the red and yellow picking up the colours in the image.

The sentiment has been used inside the card.

The challenge runs until March 1st so there is plenty of time to come and join in the fun. Remember the twist is optional focusing on Adoration

In order to be considered eligible for this month's prizes, remember that general types of  projects/posts will not qualify for the prizes unless they are also positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature.

Scrapper's Delights Anime New Releases for January

It's time for some new Anime images at Scrapper's Delights. Following on from the Chibi release at the start of the month I had the Anime best friends image to play with.


Materials used:
acrylic greeting stamp from stash
black archival ink pad
X-Press It card
blue card
silver mirri card
5" x 7" card blank
oval die
Copic pens:
skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04     R20
hair - E53, E43, E57     E42, E43, E47, E49
eyes - B24, B28     E25, E27
pink shirt - R81, R83, R85, R89     C0, C1, C3  blender
green shirt - G12, G14, YG06, G05
jeans - B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
bench - E31, E33, E35, E39

The eagle-eyed amongst you may have spotted that the top of the card is not exactly straight. This is a 'wart's and all' version! While trimming the top edge my knife slipped and that was the end result. To be honest I could not face taking it all apart and starting again. Sometimes these things happen in life so I decided to leave it as it as and encouragement: everyone has a 'boo-boo' day now and then!

For more inspiration please visit the Scrapper's Delights Blog and do take a look at the Scrapper's Delight's store here and see the other new releases on offer as well as all the other wonderful images. I am sure you will find at least one and probably many more images that you like the look of. You will need to be quick though if you want to take advantage of the January sale with 40% off your total order.
