Well, my card will NOT help us in my neck of the woods cool down as much I would like, but it is kind of fun! This was a reject from one of the more prominent US card-making magazines. Now, some would have a snarky comment to add here, but shall refrain!
I made this--
I used penguins from Papertrey Ink, and the ice cream sandwich is from Too Much Fun Stamps.
Do you LOVE that ice cream sandwich?! I do! I stamped in black onto brown card stock, and then added some flocking on the ice cream part. Looks so icy!
The fun part about the penguins is that they are on springs! "Wobbles", to be precise. I first saw these at a make and take, and I knew I had to use them somewhere, somehow.
I tried to make it look as though the penguins were using the sandwich as a diving board, and were leaping into the swirling snow, but I'm not sure how well that conveys. I just know that I got a serious giggle putting it all together!
So, since it's not being published, I will add it to my Christmas card stash. I like that it is not a holiday card per se, so I can use it for just about anyone.
Have you started those holiday cards yet? I have ONE. I guess I had best get started....
Thanks for stopping by!
All Best, and Happy Independence Day to my US friends!
(A belated Happy Canada Day, should that apply, too!)
See you soon--
PS--The house now has new shutters and the CORRECT color on the door and window boxes! (more about all that when I show you pictures)
