Christmas in August?

Not sure the title is as catchy as Christmas in July but I can't use that anymore cos July is gone lol.

I have wanted this stamp since last year and finally bought it with last weeks new release. It was the first one to see ink but the other two I bought are equally cute so expect to see them soon too. I really enjoyed colouring this and can see it being a go to stamp.

Although it doesn't look it this image is quite large and I had difficulty finding a way of cutting it out so went with a different look instead. I wasn't sure at first but now I really like it. It still needs some embellies but will add them nearer the posting time.



Ingredients
Image: "Merry Christmas Penguins" LOTV
Papers: "Merry and Bright" carte Bella at Jessica Sprague
Cardstock: "tempting turquoise" stampin up

Challenges: Snippet Playground
