2 Cute Penguin!

Are you up to your eyeballs in snow?  It seems like we have been!  It snowed again Saturday, so we stayed inside and I had time to make cards.  I thought this cute little penguin would be perfect for this frosty day.  He was really fun to color.  I played with using warm whites for the penguin and cool whites for the snow to give it contrast.  I really love the way it turned out.

Color Challenge at 2 Cute Ink

It's time for a color challenge at 2 Cute Ink Challenges - green, blue, and brown.  Holly gave us this cute Pitbull Pup to play with this week.  He just screamed "guy card" to me, so I went super masculine.  The sentiment is one that I got from a stamp exchange, and I realized that it's a fantastic all purpose stamp.

Inspiration Wednesday 3

I'm still having great fun playing along with Inspiration Wednesday.  This week took me out of my comfort zone!  I did keep with my 2015 theme of Brave, though.

Early Start on Christmas

I thought it would be good to get an early start on my Christmas cards this year.  Think February is early enough?  I love this little Knitting Birdie from 2 Cute Ink.
