Holidays are almost here...eeekkk!

So are any of you starting to stress over holiday gifts/crafts/etc?  I am! I tend to be a planner, so now is the time I try to plan out all the gifts or crafts or holiday ideas that I would like to do! So now the ideas are flowing, so hopefully, I will get organized and plan WHEN I'm going to get it all done! 

One project is to plan the family holiday cards. So I have been searching and trying out different ideas. Perfect Sentiment's challenge is to use the following sketch with a holiday greeting.

Here os my take:

I used paper from a 3 Bugs in a Rug line. And hand-cut the penguins out! (Too cute). With the help of my Cuttlebug embossing folder and white ink, I was able to create the snow background. For the greeting, I chose to use white embossing to add some effect to the card. And last, but not least, I added the red string ribbon for a little extra pop!

Also entered into the following challenges:
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes
Inky Impressions - Anything Goes
Pile It On - Keep Warm

Off to get the kiddos ready for some trick or treating!

Happy Halloween, everyone!
