Penguin Christmas Card and Zero Tan

I gotta say...I'm pretty proud of each Christmas card I create...especially since it's only September and I barely stamped these last year.

There is this great sketch at


I am also submitting this to 

Challenge #200 - LET'S CELEBRATE!!!




 Simon Says STAMPtember: Use a Stamp Challenge and Blog Hop.

It's getting colder now; I pulled out two pairs of jeans from my closet and wasn't sure if either would fit.

It's been awhile.

Good news..I could sit without busting a seam...


At least the pressure is off to catch up on my tan...

(I grew up in Hawaii and I'm used to being a wee bit darker than I am now...but the north doesn't sport daily rays...).

It's probably not going to happen at this point.


 well. ;)

Now I can stay hibernated and craft craft craft!!!


Thanks for stopping by..I pray you have a blessed week.
