Snow Cool Penguins
It's been a good week with a lot of my backorder Lawn Fawn stash arriving. Don't we all love a good happy mail from time to time. I had so much fun playing with the cute penguins from Lawn Fawn's Snow Cool stamp set which I used for the first time. I also thought the penguins would mix perfectly with the skating penguin from the Winter Penguin set. The snowy background stamp just calls for a wintery scene complete with some trees in the background and some snowy stitched hills completing the scene. I also couldn't resist creating a frame using the Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper set, another new and unused set. I think my Christmas cards will definitely have a penguin theme this year, they are too adorable in their hats and ear muffs.
I am linking up with the new challenge over at Lawnscaping where the theme is to add texture. I have added lots of stitching, the heat embossing for the snow and the linen textured background card as well. I'm also linking up with the new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is Stamp It. I'm also linking up with Darnell's 7th NBUS challenge which sadly ends today, but looking at the gallery over there at least a lot of NBUS in craft rooms across the world has now gone to being ex-NBUS. Last but not least I'm linking up with Crimbo Crackers where Anything Goes.
