Penguin with a Tree

Hello! I want to thank everyone for the concern and comments about my grandfather. He is doing much better now, still sore and limping a little but on the mend. And thanks for not telling me I was crazy for making him that kind of card! I have a fairly simple card tonight. I did get an early start on my Christmas cards this year, did a few then kind of stopped. Since it is now November, I have decided I need to get busy making my cards! i started with this cute penguin from The Angel Company, stamped him with Memento ink and then colored everything with Copic markers. I used some white Fun Flock on his hat. I cut the tree out with a craft knife and then used scalloped oval Nestabilities to cut out the image. I like the way that looks, with the tree outside of the main oval. The sentiment is from CTMH and was stamped with their White Daisy ink. Papers are DCWV and the ribbon is from my stash.

If you are in the area, don't forget about Craft Night tomorrow night. We will be collecting food items for the food pantry, so please help us fill the shelves! This food pantry services the entire community and due to the economy has had many more requests than normal. Due to the holidays approaching, the calls will probably continue to rise in the next couple of months. SO if you are able, please help us restock.
