Cute as a....PENGUIN!

Good evening everyone!  I hope you are all having a good week so far...everything is hunky dory here so far!  I would like to share these cards with you:
 
 
 
Aren't these adorable?  I just purchased this Silhouette file tonight, and HAD to make cards out of it!  I used plain old black and white cardstocks, and added some glittered cardstock for the earmuffs and scarves.  I also added some Star Dust Stickles to the headband for a bit more sparkle...honestly one can never have enough sparkle on a Christmas card!  ;) 
 
Entering these into the following challenges:
 
Winter Wonderland:  North or South Pole (polar bear or penguin)
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra:  Anything goes for Christmas
Holly Jolly:  Anything Goes for Christmas
Sparkles Christmas:  Blue Christmas (the one with the blue scarf)
 
Thanks for stopping by!  Take care!

Channel your inner Elvis...

"I'll have a blue Christmas without you, I'll be so blue thinking about you, decorations of red on a green Christmas tree, won't be the same dear, if you're not here with me..."  LOL  I'm sure most of us have this song or some other Christmas song going through ours heads often during this time of year.  Heck, I bet there are those of us that have Christmas music in our heads 24/7, 365!  :)
 
Anyway, I want to share one of my recent creations with you:
 
 
 
 
I've been making banners for work for the last 2 weeks, off and on.  I'm making a total of 14 for the people I work nearest to, to decorate their work stations a bit for the holidays.  I've tried to create one for each person according to their favorite colors, and whether they preferred snowflakes or holly.  I wish I had started this task sooner!  I have 6 of them completely finished, and all the rest are in different stages of completion.  I have to say this is one of my favorites!
 
I'm adding this to the following challenges:
 
Completely Christmas:  Anything Goes w/a twist, use something with an "S"
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra:  Anything Goes for Christmas
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper:  Anything Goes as long as project is covered with patterned paper
Sparkles Christmas:  A Blue, blue Christmas
Papertake Weekly:  Anything Goes w/a twist, make a gift or decoration for Christmas
Crafty Calendar:  It's all about Christmas
 
Thanks for stopping by!  Take care!
