Love My Little Penguin!!!

Okay, I love snowmen and penguins. They are so fabulous on winter themed cards! And as I was stamping the other day, I realized that I haven't made ANY cards with penguins this year!!! What the heck?!

Well, I quickly pulled out my penguin stamp (yes, only one--know any cute ones?!) and then sat and stared at it. I needed inspiration--it was imperative!!!

SO....I looked at my list of challenges and picked a couple! :) YES--I keep a notebook of my challenges and what I submit to them. Is that too OCD? I need to do it or I'll forget! And, it's nice to have the record. Of course, I am the ONLY one who can read what in the world it means...

...but I digress. Yet again. Okay, challenges! Yes, I chose a couple! The challenges that I will be submitting my card to are~


Sunday Stampers: Trail of the Lonesome Pine (look at this stunning inspiration!)

Both are FABULOUS challenges and I encourage you to check them out!

Here's the card~

Isn't that penguin ADORABLE?! I L-O-V-E it soooo very much! I masked him off in order to sponge the blue sky. I used a Stampin' Up! rub-on sentiment and some snowflake brads that I bought at a garage sale this summer. Can you see the details? Oh, you want some the details closer? OKAY!!!

Here's a closer look at the details~

Thanks so much for popping by today! I appreciate you being here!!! Happy stamping! :)
