Candycane Penguin

Hello all and hope you're having a great day! Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner?

I'm still catching up on MAKING Christmas cards, when I should be MAILING them out!

For these two cards, I'm using the Poppi Candycane Penguin from Bugaboo. I LOVE the penguins (you can get an adorable FREEBIE here). The DP is a digipaper freebie (I love giving credit where credit is due, but I can't remember where I got this great paper!). The rest is from my scrap pile!

I thought the ribbon was a nice touch since it matches the penguin but nothing else. LOL! Does it work? The layout is Card Patterns #93 and I'm also entering this in Digital Tuesdays Baby it's Cold Outside challenge #88.

*****NOT A CARD*****
We finally got the tree up...OK, my DH put it up since I've been sick, but I directed ;)

Here's Bean putting on ornaments. The tree was getting a little "bottom heavy" so once she retired for the evening, I went back and evened things out a bit. And believe me, she won't take that hat off for months!

Love the penguin! He's so cute! I've been hooked on penguins this year!

Love the pick of your "Bean", my little "Soy Bean" was the same way! Although he didn't like the whole hat thing. But all the ornaments were at the bottom and it was so cool to try and put as many on one branch as he could! lol Thanks for sharing the photo and cute story!
