Brrr, a winter card to share

Happy Wednesday everyone!! I took the day off to spend some time with Nolan. He's on spring break for 2 weeks! I've been busy in my little workroom creating cards with my new Whipper Snapper stamps. I just love the new images that I bought and just wanted to share them with you! Here's one called "Warm Penguin". Isn't he adorable?? I know alot of you are so ready for Spring to get here, but I couldn't wait til Winter to show this little guy off!The designer paper already came with some stars on it but I wanted to add more. My sweet friend, Joyce, gave some of us a bunch of this sugar coated cardstock by Doodlebug Designs; isn't this perfect? I used a piece of silver cord to add some interest. I used glue dots to hold down the cord and a dimensional behind the stars so the stars would "pop" out. I thought this turned out pretty well.
Here's a close-up of the star - can you see the shiny glitter? This cardstock is really cool because the whole piece is covered with "sugar" and it is so sparkly! love it!!
Supplies used: Designer paper by Frances Meyer, tempting turquoise and green galore cardstock. Stamp by Whipper Snapper: Warm Penquin and word stamp by The Cat's Pajamas: Baby, it's cold outside. Large and small star punches by SU, Sugar coated cardstock by Doodlebug Designs.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Oh!, last thing, I wanted to share something funny with you. My cat Mochiko has been very comfortable about being in the whole house other than my craft room and the other night, I was so engrossed in making cards that I lost track of her. I combed the whole house calling for her and this is where I found her - sleeping on my dad's recliner! - busted! Sorry I disturbed you O' Queen!
Here's another shot of her after I so disturbed the royal highness! It's a good thing mom and dad are getting used to her being around. She's actually a really good kitty.

I just love that penguin card. Mochiko is just too funny. You're right about mom and dad getting used to her - or else she would be OUTSIDE! Thanks for sharing those moments.
Luv,
