MM258 Penguin Christmas

Happy Friday, peeps!  I can't believe that I have posted three Christmas cards in a row...I promise I will have some fall-themed cards on very soon!  There were just some really fun challenges out there this week!  My little penguin card is for the Merry Monday challenge:

I remembered as I was looking through some of my stamps last week that this Clearly Besotted stamp set called InStitches Christmas had a fun little penguin, so I got him inky and came up with this:

I found some retired SU papers from a couple of years back that looked like snow, so I used it and stamped a little Pool Party belly on my little guy to match the paper!  I added a sentiment and a glimmer snowflake, a Pumpkin Pie mat, and it was done!

I love the cross-stitched sentiments in this set!

This past week at Cassidy's school, we had career day, patriotic day and I am not sure what "day" this one was....but she got on the bus with her pony tails colored in three different shades!

I am calling it "Unique Day"....what do you think?!  Thanks for popping in today and be blessed!

  1. Sweet stamps. I love any stiched shape. It always has a little something...

  2. At one set of our grandkids school they have Wacky Hair Day and I think Cassidy would qualify! Love the cute penguin and those stitched sentiments, they're sew cute!

  3. Well interesting hair. I do like it but only for the young!!!!

  4. Really cute clean and simple card...I seem to be into Penguins lately...Did Cassidy color her hair with Kool Aid? Starting

  5. You and I seem to be on the same wave length, LeAnne and your penguin is adorable! Looks like a fun day at school!

  6. Really cute card. The paper does look like snow and is perfect with the cute penguin.
    Love the pics of Cassidy and her colored hair.

  7. Sorry I forgot to tell you thanks for joining us at Merry Monday LeAnne. I guess I was focused on Cassidy's hair. :)

  8. So your adorable penguin! Thank you so much for playing along with us at Merry Monday!

  9. What a sweet and adorable penguin. Love that cross stitched greeting too. Look at that hair! It is so easy to change hair color nowadays. I would have loved to do that as a young 'un.

  10. I sure do like this little chilly willy with his polka dot tummy! Yep, unique day sounds good to me!
