Chilly Willy

Since it's 90 degrees I thought this little penguin would help cool things off! Isn't he the cutest? This is from the Unity Kit called Jolly Little Winter.

I started with SU Mellow Moss and embossed with the snowflake folder for the cuttlebug. The awesome patterned paper in the middle is some old Basic Grey (I think from last year?) called Fruitcake. I love it, I love the how it's a bit faded. I mounted that on red cardstock (source unknown) and added a velvet ribbon across. I used my circle nesties to cut the penguin out and the red circle. The sentiment is also from this kit. Ok, so I HATE the heat but I don't really want snow either. Fall, now that is a nice season!

Now check out the penguin! I colored him in with Copics and added stickles to his feet, nose and headband. But for his flippers and earmuff I used FLOCK! I love this stuff. I know it's been around but I always just had the white SU flock. Recently I found some at a scrapbook store and was psyched. I love how it turned out on the penguin and it worked soo nice! The flock I used is by Doodlebug Designs and I also picked up some in pink by Stampendous. I see a new craze coming one for me! Sparkle, Bling and Fluff oh what fun! LOLOL!!! Here is a close up of this little guy:
Well that's all I have for you now. Off I go to work on some more creations to share. I'm getting geared up for a birthday weekend, getting old I tell you. OK, well not that old 35 years young! And I told DH all I want is ice cream cake and money to buy stamps!

Thanks for stopping by!

Till Later....
