thought you'd see the day with a card from me with penguins on it!!  Last summer I met Linda Wetterlin for lunch and mentioned I could never do a cutsey card with little animals, big eyed children, mermaids or anything else like that.   And I think mentioned penguins in my list of stuff.  Shortly afterwards, a nice little packet of penguins came in the mail!!  Can't imagine who sent them???  So I HAD to make a card for Linda just to prove myself wrong - and I actually had a fun time making this card for her - I may have to eat my words.

The penguins, sentiment and snowflakes are from HA and the little trees and hearts are from Ellen Hutson.  The snowflakes were embossed with HA white embossing powder (the best there is!).   I put some glossy accents on the little hearts and embossed the sentiment with clear HA powder.  I hand cut the white snowbanks and added some WOS for some sparkle.  Little gold stars and clear sequins from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today and always love reading your kind comments.  Betty

  9. I chuckled when I got this in the mail, Betty - thanks so much!! I love what you did with the penguins, especially the heart addition (right up my alley). Truly - I'm not into cutesy either but these penguins fall into the charming category in my mind - can't resist them!! Let me know when you need more :)
