A penguin, a snowman, and the stamp room that exploded!

Well, as much as I try to keep the area tidy, my craft room/guest room always seems to look like something threw up there! Meredith wanders in and gets into stuff, I dump things in there when I don't have time to put them away, and well, you know the rest. I got two new stamps that I was dying to try, and I had to make some last minute Christmas I had to tackle the beast! I cleaned it up in there!

The penguin card uses this adorable stamp from Memory Box. The little penguin is standing on an iceburg. I had to use snowflake was only fitting, and I really liked the look of the Sahara Sand in the background. I colored in the penguin's bill and feet...they probably aren't orange in real life, but I had to go with it! I then used my glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter for the sparkle! The ribbon is SU's Soft Sky grosgrain.

The snowman card is from a new set of unmounted stamps that I received from Pam Clark from FireCracker Designs. He is in a set called Chin Up that is absolutely adorable...I have fallen in love with a snowman, if that is possible! Her website is

I also incorporated an SCS sketch challenge in the card!
