Little C's Weekly Challenge #11 - Whipper Snapper Penguin Christmas

Hey Everyone!! It's Little C's Weeckly Challenge #11!! Whoohoo!! This week's challenge is to create a card using the sketch below and it has to be a Christmas theme. Okay. . .easy enough!! Don't you think so? If you're interested in playing along, be sure to drop by Jen's blog "Pieces of Me" for more details! There's a prize to be given out so be sure to check it out!!


I decided to use my "Whipper Snapper" stamp again. . .isn't the penguin the cutest or what? She looks a little tired though? Don't you think? She looks like she needs a nap. LOL!! I feel a little bit like her right now. Well, Jen's online store "Little C's Stamps n' Things" have a ton of these cute Christmas Whipper Snapper stamps so be sure to stop by her store. . .the CB embossed Christmas tree is also from her store.


While my daughter was watching me blog a few days ago, she said "I knew it!! You talk while you blog. I could tell because when I read your blog, it read like the way you talk." LOL!

Do you talk while you blog? I admit it. . .I do. Sometimes my husband would ask me, "who are you talking to?" I tell him "my blog friends". LOL!! He thinks I'm strange. Yeah, so what. . .he talks to his video games. Actually, he'll have serious conversations with them while he's playing. I mean, he'll even object and argue with the game so who is he to say I'm strange. Whatever!!

Anyway. . .yeah, I know there's a lot of things going on with my card. I colored the penguin with my Copic Markers, added a bit of Stickles on to parts of the image as well as the embossed Christmas tree. Nothing much else to discuss about this card.

Here's a close up of the sleepy looking penguin!

I hope today will be a good crafting day. I've been sort of on a slump lately. . .been so busy working on my monthly kits for my Stampin Up club. The end of the month is always a bad time for me but now that I"m done, I'm excited to be able to find time to craft again!! Hear me "exhale"!!

Hope y'all have a fabulous day!!

Ooo Maria this is fantastic... I have done a cuttlebug lace tree card but its nothing like this, really cool job.

Jodi said...

Oh, this is such a pretty card! I love how you used your Christmas tree folder, and incorporated the penguin stamp there!! Great job! =)

J-Yo! said...

Awww da cute, girl!!! Love your colors, and that penguin is seriously adorable. I have to save one on the side for me for sure!! She does look tired - but how can she be tired of ice cream!? Maybe too much cold?! Ya, I totally talk to the computer when I'm blogging, my husband too - asking me "whose that?"... hahaha.... does your hubby play online? Charlie plays Madden 08 on the XBOX360, if you guys have the same - our gamertag is Maxed0utGamer (the "O" is actually a zero), so hit us up if you do. Maybe you n' I can play some games too!! Hahhaha... that would be cool. Anyways - great job on your creation. I totally am loving it!!

Hugs,
Jen

Hey Maria! Love that penguin! And I talk to the TV when I'm playing Guitar Hero. I'm either saying, "Oh mannnnn. I'm junk." or "I rock!!!!"

Nicole said...

~Michelle~ said...

fun color combo and image....I love all your little details! I don't talk when I blog....but I think it's cute that you do! I say at lease you're *talking* to *PEOPLE!*....your poor hubby talking to games! LOL! ;)

Cindy Haffner said...

Oh way tooo cute.

Mel M. M. M. said...

This penguin is FAR too cute. (She didn't look sleepy at first glance but now that you mention it a little...) The way you coloured her sure perks her up though. SO adorable! Love this rockin' layout and all your little details. P.S. I think that the reason your blog is so readable (and feels like having a great chat with you) is because you talk while you write. I talk to, but I'm going to talk more so I can be more personable like you. I need to tell more DH stories & get some kids, LOL. Yours ROCK! :O)
