Now Designing for Pile It On !!

     I'm so excited to announce that I'm now on the design team for Pile It On!  I've played over there for ages, it seems, and really enjoy the idea that they actually promote the idea of entering as many challenges with one card or project as possible; Pile them on!  :-D

     Our sponsor this fortnight is Kitty Bee Designs and our theme is "Summer or Winter."  Kitty Bee Designs supplied the images for the team and I chose to do winter so that I could use this adorable penguin, one of my favorite-ever, ocean-going, animals.  Yes, I think birds count as animals or maybe it's just that I think of penguins as being animals more than birds.  :-D

     This time I colored with Copics because I have better 'icy' blues in my Copics.  The image is cut with a die from Spellbinders.  I used one of my snowflake embossing folders on the turquoise CS.  The silver ribbon has been in my stash of Christmas ribbons for at least 3 years!   The bow was tied using my bow maker from Craft-Dee Bowz (the best investment I ever made!)

     Come play with us at Pile It On this week, won't you?   You can do something summery or something with a winter theme.  Either one will work for our challenge and don't forget to pile on those challenges.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
