Teddy With Penguin

Hi guys! Can you believe it is November already? Wow! Time sure does fly!

I just realized I could now show you a few cards I did several months ago for Papercraft Essentials Magazine.  So here is the first one:

This is Teddy With Penguin by Lili of the Valley.  Super sweet image!  The sentiment is Hero Arts.

All I did for this card was fold a large scalloped circle in half and then add the image.  I used my Cricut. I don't remember the exact size, but I think I cut out a 6" circle.  The papers are from Nitwits.  Gosh, I love those papers and am so happy that LOTV has come out with a few of the paper pads with their designs.  They are CUTE!

I colored with distress inks and used stickles for the snow.  The flowers and ribbon are from Wild Orchid Crafts!

I hope everyone is doing well.  I finally have a battery for my laptop again so I'll be visiting soon.

Have a wonderful day! I am thinking of all of you in the storms way!

Hugs, Dena
