Die Cuttin Diva - Guest Diva

Hi Everyone!

I'm excited to share that I am Guest Diva today over at Die Cuttin Divas. Thank you Georgiana! 
Today's theme for the DCD challenge is Penguins so I wanted to make something special for the occasion:) I have been so inspired lately and crafting almost every night :) My gypsy girl needs a rest! 
  I hope you have a chance to pop over to Die Cuttin Divas and join in the fun!

These two penguins were created using Number 8's from the George cartridge. The arms were a layer shape from Sweet treats welded to the body.

The inside (white) is created by using a heart balloon and regular balloon from CAC cartridge. I welded the two together. After that the card was SIMPLE. Hand cut snow hill for the penguins to slide down and some snowflakes and all done!
And of course who can forget their adorable Peachy faces!
Card - 5.5"
Paper - American Crafts
Snowflakes - Lil Inkers stamps & dies
Stamp - PK-460 Happy Lashes Face Assortment
Scarf - Yarn
Lots and lots of glossy accents :)

Me again! My daughter is working on the letter "P" this week in preschool. When they work on a certain letter during the week you have to bring in pictures of things that start with that letter. She was standing here when I was looking at your card and said I LOVE LOVE that card we have to print it out and bring it to school..P is for penguin. Your card will be debuted today in her preschool class. Hope you don't mind:)

How clever! I never would have thought of that to create the penguins. I had to read it twice to make sure I read it right. They're adorable. Thanks for joining us at Exploring Cricut.
