Penguin Thank You Cards

I used the penguin from the Cricut Create a Critter 2 and a cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge  to make these cute thank you cards.

I used  the polka dot paper from the K&Company Mod Holiday designer pad and the sparkly teal is from a DCWV glitter paper stack. I handcut the sentiment tag and inked all around topping it off with a snowflake brad.  I flocked the hat and added a pompom  from Joann's. I used my cuttlebug to add a little texture  to look like snow and popped the penguin and sentiment up with foam squares. I added some paper to decorate the inside and I just love how these came out.
I decided to be a sane relaxed person over the holidays and didn't send out cards. At least I will have some cute thank yous to give out to special friends and family! I am thinking about entering a blog challenge. I've never done that so I will try to figure it out and hopefully it works:)
Yay it worked! I participated in the Monday challenge Frosty Days at one of my favorite blogs My Craft Spot! The designers on that blog are amazing.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy new Year!
