These little penguins from Evelin T designs are so cute – especially the little stumbling guy in front! That’s totally me on my face and he needed to take center stage. (Watch the video to hear the YMCA story!)

Don’t forget a quick little decorating of the envelope!
I think I’m up to 65 Christmas cards now, which is a good bit of progress on my 250 goal! But I need to keep jamming….the calendar ain’t waiting!

Such a cute card! I would love to have a set of Polychromos but have not invested in one because of the high prices. A local store has a good deal on the set of 24 from time to time and I’m so tempted to buy them. But I worry that I will find the set too limited in colors and will end up spending even more by wanting to invest in another … bigger set. I realize that this is a very subjective question but in your opinion, which size of the Polychromo sets would you recommend? Is getting the set of 120 the only way to go to get enough variety?
In the Colored Pencil Jumpstart class I teach how to mix colors – some basic color theory that can expand your collection without buying more pencils 🙂 I don’t know I’d be happy with 24 long term but if you’ve wanted to try it those aren’t bad colors! 🙂
Thank you so much for your advice. Have a wonderful weekend!
I love all the little penguins and bears. Your card is so fun.
Oh wow, this is just adorable Sandy
I almost cheered when I saw you used your Polychromos, this colour medium is what I have.
I hoped for it when you announced yesterday that you will do a Holiday Scene Week. I always learn so much from you and still saving for your pencil jumpstart class, I now also have the stamps. So when the craft piggy has his belly full, I can buy it and start.
Thanks for showing this gorgeous card, I love the little penguin that’s fallen, it’s cute.
You must have fallen very ugly with roller skating Sandy to sustain such a serious injury. I can very well imagine that you no longer use roller skates or skates.
Thanks again and have a wonderful day.
This is awesome Sandy, I was wondering if you had any plans to do a pencil Winter Scenes mini class?. Thank you for the inspiration have a lovely rest of the day
Likely next Christmas season – this year had so much going on!
The little penguin with the hat pulled over his eyes –that’s me!!! Your coloring always pulls me into the scenes you create! I love all of your classes. Every time you hear YMCA you must remember your fall! Your ice skating injury reminds me so much of horseback riding injuries I’ve had. Same thing – they were so bad I finally quit riding for good. The skating injuries were not as bad as yours, but I still have the scar of a speed skater who went over my thumb! Oh, my. After decades go by, we have to many dents and scars from life. Thank you for your memories and for this adorable little scene!
I love all the cards you’ve done I just wish you did digital images for those of us outside of the US.
Sandy you know I love you! I take all of your classes (except watercoloring. Want to master markers and pencils first, getting close I think, well maybe NOT master, lol) and have learned SOOOO much thanks to you. Thank YOU! THANK you! THANKful for you!! Love the reflection of the red on the ice! Bowing now!
Wow I thought the polar bear and foxy was amazing but this is my favourite so far
