Christmas Critter


Every year we're invited by friends of ours to a "Critter Christmas" party.  They don't serve penguins to eat (and I'm not even going to tell you what all they DO serve!  LOL!) but it's always fun and entertaining.....to say the least.  This critter is too cute to worry about things like that though.

This cute little guy is from the Lawn Fawn set Winter Penguin.  I also used a Stitched Hillside Borders die and cut this out with glitter paper for him to be skating on.  The sky was sponged in distress ink and then I white embossed some tiny little snowflakes that were with the stamping set.  He's colored with Copics and then some clear Wink of Stella was added.  The sentiment, also from the same set, was stamped and then some red sequins added.

I'll enter this in the Critters challenge at Lawnscaping Challenges this week.




Thanks for stopping by..........
Lynn

Creative layout Lynn and so, so cute! I think I'm going to have to get that stitched die... was looking at it this morning but I never thought of it as a die for hills or snow. Cute little penguin too.

This little critter is just as cute as he can be, and your coloring is super. Of course I'm loving the stitched hillside (sigh, another die I need to look for!). Your sponged sky is fabulous. Love those clouds and the way you've emphasized the icy snowflakes. This is just a happy smiley card. Well done! TFS

Another fine critter card, Lynn! Hard to believe it is almost officially fall. Wonder if there will be skaters on my lake this year. I love the stitched hillsides you used, what a shame they are sold out.
