i’m just making today’s deadline for the jingle belles earth day special to create a card that includes a recycled element.  a family member sent me a very large card last year with three adorable and fuzzy little penguins on it; i die cut all three and created these 4 and 1/4″ square cards with them. i stamped the penny black christmas text in gold, added the memory box die cut jingle bells and added some more glitter to each image. and, just because i have trouble stamping straight sentiments, i used a gold peel off. thanks for popping by to view my 400th post.

    Those penquins are really cute!

  5. Isn’t it amazing how our posts clock up Linda, well done on reaching the 400 mark.

    Great recycling here and the added glitter really lifts them and concentrated the eye.
