Penguins aren't just for winter


I really like Unity Stamps. A lot!! They have wonderful stamps, awesome customer service and their shipping is really reasonable. And SUPER QUICK! But what I like most is the stamp set Jolly Winter. Shane is a huge penguin fan. Anything penguins – he’s gotta have it, loves it, needs it, wants it. So, of course, I had to buy this set. It’s really hard to find cute penguin stamps that I can use all year long for cards for Shane. But this worked really well.

I combined SCS’s SC233 and Color Throwdown challenge 42 (Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black and So Saffron) for this card.

Added some texture with my CB and my cute sparkly, glittery star is from a pack I got for $1.00 at Michaels. A touch of faux stitching and stickles to complete the card. This will go into my Shane stash for those unexpected occasions that I need something to make his day a little better.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

The colors certainly make this cute little penguin look summery. The piercing and doodled lines make a great edge treatment for this, too.
