Do Penguins Wait for Santa?

     I've never been able to confirm that penguins are excited about Santa's visits but this little guy seems to think it's worth watching the skies.  :-D  It's a Bugaboo image and this is the first card I've been able to get done in their week of Christmas themed challenges.  This one is for Catch the Bug's "Here Comes Santa" challenge.

     I colored with ProMarkers and die cut the image with one of my Stitched Rectangle Dies (Memory Box.)  I added two layers of mats and adhered it all onto a pre-made, colored, card base.  I used three little snowflakes, punched from red CS.  Hard as it is to see in the photo, I added glitter to the snow and to the snowflakes.  I left it CAS, partly because it's going to be a card for a guy.

     Two weeks from tonight is Christmas Eve.  Are you ready?   Have you mailed your packages and cards, and wrapped all the gifts?  Have you baked those cookies for Santa?   Are the stockings hung by the chimney or do you wait until Christmas Eve for that little chore?  If you haven't done any of those things, you need to get a move on!    Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  4. Wow those two weeks are going to fly by. Good thing I'm almost done. I'm sure penguins wait for Santa. They are such darling creatures how could Santa forget them. This one is especially cute with his hat surrounded by beautiful snowflakes. Have a fun day.

  5. I just love this little penguin! He's a chubby little fellow and precious. Love the sparkle and shine from those snowflakes too. Christmas will be here before we know it now.

  6. Love me some penguins. Remember when I first saw one. This one is so cute waiting for santa. Not sure if he knows who santa is. Anyways, love the CAS and coloring of this festive beauty.
