Oh my goodness gracious, when I made this card I had no idea how appropriate it would be for today! I woke up Monday morning to 12 inches of snow and then it snowed all day! The sun never did come out, and they still haven't plowed most of the main roads (probably trying to save funds) and the roads are really ugly. Now it's supposed to get down to zero tonight. So BRRRRRR is right! LOL! It really IS beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Ok, enough with my weather report. LOL!
Today is Tuesday, which means it's time for another challenge at Papertake Weekly, and this week, we're being sponsored by Stretch 'n Bubbles. Alison was kind enough to give us some images to play with and I chose this adorable image called Earl the penguin. Isn't it too cute??!! I colored him with Copic markers and then cut him out so I could pop him up off the card for dimension. The Brrrr was cut with my Cricut Expression and Winter Woodland cartridge. The snowflakes are from a Martha Stewart punch and finished with a Kaiser pearl. The DP is from Sandylion and cardstock is Bazzil. Please be sure to visit Papertake Weekly to see the amazing creations from the rest of the design team! And then grab your paper and glue and play along with us! You might win a fabulous prize from Alison at Stretch 'n Bubbles!
Also, Please don't forget to stop by tomorrow to check out my first sneak peek of the new Wags N Whiskers release that is happening on Friday with a blog hop! These stamps are SO CUTE and I don't want you to miss out on any of the fun! Do you want another chance to win some candy??? Then be sure and check THIS out!
Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back tomorrow to check out the sneek peak! Hugs!!

Hi, not sure where you live, but we are expecting the blizzard type snow starting tonight and they are talking about white-out conditions for tomorrow and possible school closing! (I won't drive in that stuff, so maybe my next card should have a chicken on it!)
So you hit it on the button with this cute Brrr card!
really cute!
Try to stay warm, I'm not looking forward to the zero temps.!
