A lady at work has an elderly friend that loves penguins. So this is the 2nd year she has requested a box card set to give her friend as a gift (then her friend will have 5 cards to hand out next year). I make the cards flat so it is easier for her mail. I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #328 as my inspiration. She gets 5 cards and 5 envelopes in the handmade box (see next photo).

CHALLENGES:
1) December Inspirational Card Challenge – Bonus – something that begins with “s” or “t” – toboggan sled, snowflakes, scarfs, stocking hat, snow, sledding

So then I make a card similar to the ones that are in the set for the lady to give her friend. I used Digi Sketch Challenge (8/18/14) as my inspiration.

Dashing through the snow

Dashing Penguins

These penguins are just having too much fun playing in the snow together! I love how fun this image is.

Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge this week and the challenge is Use Black Cardstock. Now I have no problem using black cardstock but I guess when you TELL me to use it my creativity goes out the window. I kept coming up with ideals for stamps but none of them would use black cardstock. So I looked through the Christmas stamps and picked out a few I thought would work. Then started looking at sketches and sketch #4 in the November Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com made me think of snowbanks and the flower could be a snowflake…..and that is how this card was made!
