What's cooking?

Happy Wednesday all! It's already the middle of the week...whew time is flying. Are yuou ready for the holidays yet? Well I'm so looking forward to them and the time before Christmas, my absolute favorite time of the year! I am also still in the middle of finishing Christmas cards. But inbetween it is so nice to make a different card like the one I can show you today. It's a birthday card and the image I used is from The Pixie Cottage called "Pepe the Penguin as Le Chef"!  Isn't he soooooooooo cute?
I also have some news to share. Michelle Offenberger the owner of The Pixie Cottage Stamps asked me if I would like to be a guest designer for one month for The Pixie Cottage. What an honor and of course I gladly accepted! So I am a GDT for the month of January :-) YAY! For my GDT work Michelle sent me some stamps from her stamp line (my choice) and this cute little Penguin is one of the stamps I chose. And even if it is not my month yet as a GDT I am allowed to use the stamps already (thanks Michelle!!!) and I was dieing to use this little Penguin. So look forward to January and you'll see some more Pixie Cottage cuties here at my blog :-) Ok onto my card now:

I made and easel card and the image 'Pepe the Penguin as Le Chef' is colored using  Copics and I added a nice shimmer to his belly using Twinkling H2O's. The DP is from The Gooseberry Patch called Christmas Gingham and 7Gypsies Avignon Paper: Orchestra.

Here you can see the nice shimmer on his belly. I used Heavenly White from the Twinkling H2O's

A closer look on the inside. I got the idea with the tag from Rach. She did that on a few easel cards and I really liked it! The sentiment is by SU! and the punche I used is from EK Success (fern leave) and the flower die is from Marianne Design. I get my Marianne Design dies HERE

The leave die comes together with the flower die I used on the inside (Marianne Design). To match the gingham paper I used a similar gingham ribbon. And the music note I've added is a brad.

Ok that's it for today I guess.
Thanks for stopping by and I 'll be back with another project tomorrow!
Have a great Wednesday!
