Let's Chill.....

Great to make another Christmas Card...
Today's card has been inspired by 
The Muse Christmas Visions Challenge where
Cornelia has provided four amazing cards as inspiration.
My card.......
Bottom right card......
My interpretation.....
Loved the Big Blue circle, the pretty little blue dots and the cute penguins
The Big blue circle became my balloon.
The pretty little dots became the lower half of my card.
The ice cube igloo in Cornelia's card became my stencilled icicles 
at the top of my card.
Finished off with the black sentiment.
I have used Lindy sprays for the balloon, all shiny and pretty.

I reckon my Penguin is really chilled out having fun in the snow.
I have a birthday (hence the balloon) 
in the family on Christmas day so this is for her x

Thank you so much for finding time to stop by.
I really do appreciate it.

Love it, Mac ... from the oversized shimmery balloon to the sparkly icicles ... and from the polka dot 'beach' to that adorable little penguin, it's brilliant! Yep, I love it! Hugs, Anita :)

Marianne said...

So fun! Sorry to hear you did not manage to finish all 4 cards. I probably would not have managed if I had not taken the week off, which turned out to be a happy coincidence.

This is brilliant. The icicles are so delicate and the balloon so beautiful. It makes a fantastic winter birthday card.
Thanks for playing along at Christmas Card Throwdown.

Susan said...

Terrific card. Love that huge balloon! Thanks for sharing at ATCAS!

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

Now that is one fun card!!! Love how you interpreted my penguin card. That penguin with his sunglasses is a riot! (Perhaps he had too much wine, LOL!) I was planning on commenting on all the MCV cards, but work made that impossible... Thanks for playing along - even when it is kind of late...

Pat said...

You have been busy Mac and I love the three different cards you have made using the cards below as inspiration. This is such fun with the prettily embossed balloon tied to his toe, a very clever interpretation, and the deer with the baubles on his antlers, and then the sweet gingerbread man both follow the themes beautifully. I think I will need to crack on with my Christmas cards rather than leave it to the last minute which is usually what happens...lol. x

Bożena Adamusińska said...

Great interpretation of the Corneli card. I love your shiny balloon so much. The card is perfect for winter solenisant.

Oh my gosh Mac, this card put a huge smile on my face this morning! That little guy sliding down the snowy hill, so freaking cute and hilarious LOVE IT!!! Your balloon is spectacular, the stitched edge, the colours, the textured effects, wow! So many details and yet a clean looking card! The glittery stripes in the background, the beautiful spotting snowy hill, and the jet black sentiment... so well put together and such great flow! hugs :)
