Winter Penguin Decorating His Igloo

Hello my crafty friends! Is everybody ready for Christmas? My son has been so kind to announce every single day just how many days are left, lol! Do any of you host for the holidays? Lucky me I have Christmas every year at my house and it looks like I'm stuck with Thanksgiving now too..... For those of you who host, I salute you and wish you as low stress as possible, hee hee (If there is such a thing)! I don't think anyone can truly understand what goes in to hosting a holiday until you've had to do it year after year by yourself. I'm trying to buck up and not sweat the small stuff but...... it ain't easy!!

Today I have a cute little igloo shaped card to share :) 

I used the Too Cute By Jessica Cute Winter Penguins file that was a Craftin Desert Diva's hop freebie. I just love these adorable and chubby little penguins! The Igloo and light strings are from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge. I welded and cut the igloo shape at about 4"x 11 3/8". I hand cut the glitter paper along the bottom for the snow.

The colored papers are all from my scraps box. I used flocking powder for the cute little beanie. I also added some Wink of Stella glitter on the lights. The face is from the Peachy Keen Winter Wonderland Face Assortment.

This picture captures the sparkle!

The sentiment is from the Craftin Desert Diva's Get Your Jingle On set and I used the SVG that goes with it.  Here are pics of what I used:
