Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

This little penguin is from the THINK SNOW set, by Anna Wight for Whipper Snapper Designs released earlier this week. Isn't he a cutie?!

I've been checking out the other card designs by this months Feature Designers on the SCS Website: WSFD and I was blown away by all the cards & projects. There are some seriously awesome cards using these sets.

So can anyone tell that I'm addicted to my Fleur de Lis die? Yes, I think I'm going to have to buy some more - I just love it. So on this card I combined my love of the die with my favorite colour brown (sorry, not so Christmas-y...but don't get down on the brown!!) I can't remember what the background Christmas paper is, I've had it for a couple of years I'm sure and the label is long gone. The red polka dot is Pink Paislee.

I would have loved to be more involved this past week in posting for the November/December Whipper Snapper Feature Designers, but I'm still recovering from my surgery on Monday and have been taking it easy. I'm having a ball today though checking out everyone's fun projects and cards from all week. You guys are amazing!!

That penguin is adorable...you've made a beautiful card with it! I just got that die and ran it through the first time and that cardstock is hard to get out! lol I'm sure I'll figure out how to do it without ripping parts of it to shreds eventually! ;)

Hey girl, this is so BEAUTIFUL!!!! Love the colors and that Fleur De Lis pendant is just another must have I have to add to my list ;D. I am blown away by this fun little card. Hugs, Sabrina

Carla - I hope you are taking it easy and not over extending yourself. It's so important to make a full recovery and you can only do that by resting. Your card with Anna Wight's little ice skating penguin is just lovely. Feel better!

Gorgeous card Carla! I just got the fancy tags dies and didn't realize one of them was the fleur de lis!! I love it too. Have you seen the Cuttle bug embossing folder with fleur de lis? I love that one too. I think the colors are perfect :0)
