Penguins and loads of Sparkle for CCC!

Hello there Everyone,  I hope you are well and enjoying your weekend.

It's time once again for the CCC ladies to share their latest cards, and this time it's my choice of theme and I've chosen Penguins, and add lots of sparkle.  Looking forward to seeing your what everyone comes up with.  Here are my cards;
I picked up this little stamp whilst away in Coventry at the Range, I thought he was a jolly wee character.  Alcohol inks for colouring, and a piece of paper I found in my stash. 
This little chap was a purchase from, Mrs Duck's online shop, https://www.theducksdoodahs.com/  it's a little die and I've coloured him up and added glitter. Found the snowflake EF in my boss and gave it a wash with DI, the sentiment is by  CB. 
Now for this one I've used all  Card-io stamps,with one of the new EF from John Next Door called Confetti, also from Mrs. Duck's shop. A little bit of colour over the mountains and lots of sparkle.  I've rubbed a little silver ink on to the raised dots on the EF.
Hope you like them and don't forget to pop into see what the other team members create.

Just before I sign off, just want to thank everyone who left lovely comments about my last frame,  I do appreciate each and every one of them. 
Have a lovely weekend,

I love that top image, The Range has some great stuff, don't they? I have those Cardio Penguins too, they're fab, that EF on the bottom one is lovely. Hugs, Shaz XxX
