Penguin Chick


This week was Christmas. I received a few things from various places for various projects. You will just need to return to see the new things. I needed something quick and easy and this little cutie fit the bill. I ordered her (A Shore Thing Collection - Penguin chick) and her boyfriend (from the same collection- Penguin dude) from A Cherry On Top (a site suggested by my friend Shemaine).
I saw a card similar to this one on bigideasfromalittlegirl.blogspot.com, but I changed everything about it...the stamp, ribbon, bow, colors, paper, etc. I had this paper from our Hawaii wedding supplies, I am just not sure where I got it. I used it to make shirt invites for our rehearsal get-together, but I found this scrap to be perfect. I used my lovely circle scalloped punch and Creative Memories circle template. I am not sure if you can see the stickles on the flower in her hair, but I thought a little pink flower gave her a punch of color (stickle color is fruit punch...get it?!).
I cannot wait to play with all my new things, but I do have my BIG research paper due in less than a month, so if I do not get a chance to blog every day, please cut me some slack. Ok, mom?!?

I loooove that stamp! I have her and her BF too! I used a glue pen and some sugar coating in green to make the grass skirt pop on mine. I love that you used stickles in the flower and the fact that it's fruit punch or the color is absolutely fab! I'm jealous of that scallop punch! I love that you started a blog cause you make some amazing cards and projects. Can't wait to see more!!!
