Featured Creation by Helen

Hi, everyone!  So glad you can stop by our Showcase Blog.  Today, I have a crafter feature of a card made with "Baby Penguin in Santa Hat" (a.k.a. The Little Penguin) by Helen Smith.  I'm always in the mood for a Christmas project... or Christmas feature!! :D  Helen is getting a head start on the holiday cards.  We all know how holiday season sneaks up on us, and there never seems to be enough time to prepare (or there's always something more we need to do at the last minute no matter how hard we try to be fully prepared), so I feel it's great to get a start on that now... or any time all year around.

She colored the little baby penguin in realistic grey and white as baby penguins naturally are.  Took the color theme and expanded to the rest of her holiday card, which makes for something unique since we all so often see holiday cards in classic reds and greens.  The pretty background paper adds a festive touch, which is perfect for this little dancing baby, bringing holiday cheer with his Santa hat and a candy cane stick!  You can check out her blog post on this creation right here.

The "Baby Penguin in Santa Hat" digi is available as a 5" x 7"/ 12.7 x 17.8 cm JPG file at 300 dpi (1500 x 2100 pixels) at AW Etsy shop here and at AW web shop here.  I think it is not only cute for season's greetings, but also cute to make handmade ornaments with.  The relatively simple image is also wonderful to craft with children for the holiday craft fun.

We're down to the last 3 days for the AuroraWings monthly newsletter sign-up if you want to get a special edition Halloween image that is only available as a gift to subscribers.  The sign-up form is found at the sidebar of this blog.  If you haven't signed up, do it today so you won't miss out on this special offer.  The gift digi's download link will be sent in the first newsletter, going out on October 2, 2014.

Till next time, happy coloring!!
