Baby It's Cold Outside

Hi! Let me just start off my saying that I have not stepped foot in a single store except for Michaels to get something essential for finishing a super secret project. It's not that secret, but I do have to wait until Monday to show it to you...think new stamps from My Favorite Things. I can't wait to hear what you think of this project. If you are wondering why I don't shop on this weekend it's because I have a hard time with crowded places. I wouldn't call it a phobia, more of a very short temper:) KWIM. Do you feel like that, or do you thrive on the thrill of the hunt?


I haven't had a chance to play in the challenges going on at PaperCraftPlanet, but today was the day! I played their sketch challenge and day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas challenge, use a bird or reptile(?) hey, I don't make up the challenges, I just play 'em. I hope a penguin counts as a bird (I need to get out of my studio a little more:). I used this super cute penguin from The Cat's Pajamas. I stamped him in brown and Pomegranate embossed the brown one and added a little color to the hat and trimmed it. The same with the sign. I added Liquid Pearls for the snow. The paper is of course from PaperAddiction.com, from The Basic Grey Line, Wassail. FYI, those adorable mini suitcases are back in stock, just in time for unique gift giving.

Thanks so much for stamping by!

Super Cute! Don't feel bad I don't do so well in large crowds either.

Great card! Love the little penguin!

By the way, I'm with you on the crowded places. Don't like it!!

Love the card, so cute! OK, well I probably did enough shopping for us both anyway! That is the one and only day of the year that the crowds do not bother me, because everyone is usually happy and excited to be out so it is kind of fun. Otherwise, I do not even like being in a grocery store during "prime time"!
Can't wait to see your secret project!

Cute, cute, cute!

I don't mind shopping on Black Friday, as long as everyone minds their manners. I had fun chatting with the people in line with me - and at some stores, we had plenty of time to chat!

Just adorable. I love the colors. They say holiday without shouting it out.
