Spring Rudolph Day

Today is Rudolph day and what could be better then a few penquins, Heidi from SimonSaysStamps sent me this clear stamp set and I've been waitting till today to show them. My first one is a snowglobe cut out using the Cricut, it was the Christmas cheer cartridge. The papers are Pebbles.

Love the cool dude penquin and the great sentiment, again I've used Pebbles paper and I've put some glossy accents on his glasses.
This penquin is skating on some glossy accents with glitter throw in to make it sparkly, I've also run the penquin through the cuttlebug to give him a dotty tummy and cut out the outline to put over the top to make it look neater. I love those Pebbles paper its just perfect for all my penquins.

When I saw the stamps this type of slider card came imediately to mind not sure why because I've never done on before. Its called a penny slider but in this case its called a 5p slider because a penny was too big and the snowflake swirls came with the stamp set too.Just to prove it does slide although this penquin looks like he's slipped on a bit of ice.

I've nicknamed this penquin Dame Edna because of her big specs which are nice shiny with glossy accents, annoyed with the ribbon its white in RL not dirty looking white.

Sorry to scare you with Christmas cards but it just has to be done.

Your little penguins are just adorable! If I received that first card, I would have to just sit and laugh and laugh and then keep it out in plain site all year long! That is just too much!
