Joyful Penguins

Hi, everyone!

Hope everyone is enjoying a good holiday weekend. Before sharing my card, I'd like to send my thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and loved ones of our fallen heroes.

Today's Card: Joyful Penguins

Today it was hot -- summertime hot. Talk about perfect pool weather. So, here I am sharing a Christmas card. Seems like it's Christmas year round in the menopause room.   :)

Doodlebug Design north pole; Stampin' Up! neutrals; Recollections black
various Distress Ink core papers
SU owl-builder punch; Martha Stewart pine branch punch
Lawn Fawn mini snowflake dies; Paper Smooches snowman dies
SU [masked] Good Greetings sentiment in StazOn jet black
Glossy Accents (to add interest to penguins' eyes)
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zots glue dots; Zig 2-way glue pen

This isn't the first time I've transformed these SU owls into various animals, including penguins. But, I especially like the clean, crisp feel of this card.

I asked hubby if the penguins looked joyful. He said yes... except maybe for the bottom one -- but that was totally understandable since the other two penguins were standing on his head. What a totally sweet answer.   :)

These little guys are going to be shared at the following challenges, including two Christmas challenges which are new to me:

Parting Thoughts

Surprisingly, we haven't had many entries for our current Words 2 Craft By Challenge. The challenge is open through Wednesday... and there's a My Favorite Things gift certificate up for grabs. We'd love for you to stop by and join our May/June challenge.

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
