Freshly Made Penguin

Whew!  Can you say, "just in the nick of time?"  I made this card yesterday after some inspiration from a friend, lol.  She wanted to know if I had any troubles with this particular stamp, so I gave it a few good tries and let her know it was A-ok.  THEN I remembered the awesome sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week, and WALLA!  A card was born!  ;)



This poor chilly penguin sure needs a warm scarf, so I knit him one with my Sparkle and Shine Washi tape!  Take a peek at how I did it...super easy!  Just lay the washi over the image you want to color with it, then trim it out!   :)


...and glue it on!  :)  I topped the hat with a tiny glitter gem.  He is leaving a breezy trail of Sparkles Flourishes behind him and breathing out some frosty breath in front. 


Inside, is a great anytime sentiment.  This My Acrylix stamp set is adorable and only available to hostesses for a limited time.  Contact me here or at mimimyselfandi@outlook.com to earn it for free with your own home or online gathering! 


Here is another cutie pie card made by our corporate offices from the set...


and another one I made...

  4. I was scrolling through the entries and yours "jumped out" at me. Your presentation gives this little guy such personality -- I feel like I'm actually watching him skate along, looking at his breath in the cold winter air :-) Clean and simple -- beautiful!
