Penguin Family

Penguin Family

A special card for the girl who coordinates my Book Club at the Winery.


Hi all! My Winery Book Club (cause, yes I go to two!) decided we wanted to give Abril, the girl who keeps our group straight at Crow Farm and Winery Book Club a monetary gift of our appreciation. So I was tasked with creating a card to put the cash in! I decided to use a layout I used for a bunch of cards I made to go with cookie boxes later this month. The single penguin in the set worked perfectly, paired with (what else?!) some hot foiled sentiments. Now, on with the Show& Tell….


I love this funny Santa penguin and his big bushy beard! I used Nuvo glitter drops on the band and pompom of the hat.


Wanting to coordinate the gems with the colors of the presents, I decided to use clear gems and color them with the darkest marker of each color.


I used the you are one in a million sentiment, making this a double duty card.

Christmas and Appreciation!

All Dressed Up challenge time! Join us over on the All Dressed Up Facebook page for Decembers FB Challenge. This month the theme is Clean and Simple. I chose to use Prosecco Time. How will you show “Clean & Simple” and what stamp will you use?? Now, on with the Show and Tell…


Look at that yummy shimmery paper, and the fun prism hot foiled circles and sentiment!


Using mostly grey and black allows the magenta bow and gloves along with the pink paper to pop.
