Hi Folks! All my Christmas cards are mailed and most have been received. However, I can't stop making them, regardless of how late it is in the season! The trees are digital images from Zoe's company, Make It Crafty - Whimsical Pine (medium and small), which I printed onto my Hammermill white paper, 100 lb, along with my penguin, so that I could colour them as a scene. The papers are from Whimsy's digital line, "Snow Deep" and Nordic Christmas (currently free from Whimsy, Merry Christmas, and thank you Tracy and Denise of Whimsy Stamps!!). I just had to print them off my printer (also used Hammermill paper for these papers).
The cute chipboard words are also from Make It Crafty and are also carried at Whimsy Stamps!
I coloured my penguin and snow scene with the following Copic markers:
Whites of Penguin: W00, 0, YR30, R30, 0 blender, E40, 41, BV20, BG70
Gold bell, beak and feet: YR30, 12, 14, 16, 23, 27, E39, 99
Blacks: N0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 7, 9, Special Black
Greens of outfit: G00, 03, 05, 21, 46, BG 78, W4
Red of outfit and ribbon: R30, 12, 14, 24, 27, 35, 56, 46, 39, 89
Greens of leaves: YG01, 21, 46, BG78
Snow whites: BG0000, 000, B60, B00, B32, 21, BG70, BG10
Sky: BG10, B41 and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide sponged over the top portion of the sky
BG96 to show a bit of the evergreen leaves on the trees.
I did not use glitter on the hat - that is a "faux glitter" technique that I did by using Copic markers and gel pens! I used Copics followed by three gel pens - a white, a light red and a dark red, to make the look of glitter without actually using glitter.
I am entering a few challenges:
Make It Crafty : Sparkle (creating the look of glitter without using glitter)
Christmas on Splitcoaststampers (anything goes)

I hope you can enjoy the holidays this year!
