Pink Penguin

Pink penguin

This sweet penguin from the Stampin' Up! Animal Crackers stamp set must be freezing his icy, little derriere.  I first created him for the the Splitcoast Stampers Dirty Dozen September Gallery.  I now get to share him on my blog with you 🙂

  1. Oh, how adorable, Mary! I love the Regal Rose with the Night & Day Specialty DSP! (I can’t believe that I used the Night & Day DSP today for PPA 22. I had no idea you used it yesterday!)

  2. I love this cute little penguin, Mary! Love the great snowflakes, too! So very cute! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas! Enjoy your time together! Merry Christmas!

  3. Love the color combinations. Very very pretty card. Did you use the printed window sheets on your card with polka dots on the left side of you card? I love the snowflakes with the rhinestones. Great job. Hope you have a Very Merry Christmas.

    Hi Dorothy:

    The polka dots on the left side are window sheets included in the Night and Day Specialty Paper 🙂 Hugs, M

  4. This card is so neat! I have a penguin from the “Wild About You” set. I need to get it out , so I can start on winter cards.

  5. Just adorable! My mind is picturing this as a valentine card too. Woo Hoo!

  6. Debbie Pierce

  8. absolutely darling, Mary! Into my future CASE file it goes! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Christmas! Here in the midwest, we are freezing our little derriere off! I’m sure it’s warmer in Arizona! Blessings, Gretchen

  10. What a darling card, Mary! I love the colors for this cute winter card. XO

  11. I love that gorgeous card! Love the black, white and pink, the dainty snowflakes and the cute penguin!

    I was thinking of you the other day when I received the Animal Crackers set, which I bought when it was on sale. You’ve put together the cutest cards with this set and I was wondering if you would be sharing more creations with it. haha, ask and you shall receive!

    Thanks for the inspiration 😀

    Hi Cindy:

    Here’s a quick tip (until I use the Animal Crackers set again). Find the SEARCH field on my left side bar. Put “animal crackers” in the field and submit. My past posts/cards using animal crackers should pop up.

    Thanks for your kind words.

    Hugs, M

    Happy Holidays!
