Joy to the World Let it Snow

Welcome today, if you are looking for the World Cardmaking Day Canadian Blog Hop card please find it here.
I didn’t get  any cards made yesterday, I had spent my afternoon hopping, today was rainy, dull and cool here at our cottage so decided to work on a couple of challenges for the Penny Black Blog. The first one was last Monday’s challenge to make a winter card, at the time I started the card I didn’t have any “winter” stamps so I improvised using the hedgie that was throwing flowers and coloured and cut the image out. I elevated it on some snowflake dp that I cut in a circle with spellbinders. I then added it to the  front of the easel card base.
Well I had so much fun making the easel card I just had to do another, I made this for the same blog this was for a chance to win your wish list, and wow mine is BIG not only to win but to have a guest spot on the blog. There wasn’t a theme so I continued with Christmas in a different colour combo.
Now what is as cute as hedgehogs? That would be penguins for me. I bought this set at Stamp Art in London ON last week and just fell in love with it. It is called Carolling Penguins and comes two sentiments, Let it Snow and Joy to the World. The colour I used was Ridinghood Red and the dp from the same stack as the other card. I used the Fancy Labels Three for sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you had a productive World Card Making Day on October 1sr.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Both of your cards are so, so cute.
I love both of these images.
Great idea to make the hedghog throwing snowflakes instead of flowers. Imagine the things you could use with this stamp :)
