Merry Kissmas Penguins

Good morning everyone I hope you are all having a great week and that you are all well. My post today is a card I've made for the launch of the November Challenge Anything goes over at Crafting by Designs. We have three sponsors this week each giving great prizes
Prize - 4 digi images

Prize - $10 credit to store

 Ike's Art  
Prize - $20 credit to store
For my Design team project I decided on an image from Inky Impression called Merry Kissmas Penguins. Its a really cute image and great fun to colour. I used Derwent Inktense pencils this is the first time I've used them with a digi stamp but it worked just fine.

Thank you to those of you who commented on Sunday evening I was having Blogger problems and for some reason this was published when I asked it to update and save as draft. I removed it as the challenge isn't until Wednesday 5th so sorry but the comments you all made are brilliant. I'm classing it as a Sneak Peak to the chosen few!!. Hugs Carole x
