Merry Monday #258 - Penguin

Hello friends.  Colleen is our hostess for this weeks challenge at Merry Monday and she would like to see a PENGUIN on your Christmas card.


I have a new Avery Elle stamp set called Brring On The Joy that I've been having a lot of fun with lately, and it also worked out perfectly for this weeks challenge!


I started with a white card base and then layered a piece of Aqua Mist card stock that had been die cut with a Gina Marie Design die.  Next I stamped and colored with Copics the two penguins holding the wreath and the piece of ice they're skating on.  Hard to tell in the photo but I used Dazzling Diamonds around the edge of the ice piece and used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on all the little star die cuts in the background.  My sentiment banner is from MFT's Tag Builder Blueprints #5 with the "holiday cheer" from PTI's Tag-Its #9.

I know I'm going to get a lot of use with these cute little guys...look at what cute tags they make too!


I mean seriously...how can you resist such cute little faces?!!

So grab your PENGUIN stamps and play along with us this week!  Christmas is coming quicker than you think friends, so let us help you get a head start!  For more inspiration, check out all the great cards from the DT and then play along right HERE.  We can't wait to see what YOU come up with for this weeks challenge!


Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
