Caroling Penguins

I drove my husband for physio on Friday and with nothing else to do I went shopping at the local stamp store, so much fun! Did I mention I'll be driving him for the next 3 weeks, 3 times a week until he can drive himself, OMG I think I'm more excited than he is, lol! There is nothing else to do except maybe sit and read a book, NOT. Soooo I bought these cute little guys for a couple of reasons. One of course was to make a winter card BUT Cute Card Thursday is having a challenge to do a weather related card. What is the weather like where you live, well below is the photo I took Thursday of the weather in our area. In the bottom of the photo you can see the footprints on the back deck. The day before it was clear of snow. I'm just so thankful that the snow didn't fall until we were home. Driving in that blizzard would have been so stressful. We got 15cm of snow and Calgary got 23cm, I'm so glad I don't live in Calgary, lol!
I've entered this card into Scrap-Creations for the sketch, Tuesday Throwdown use sparkle and bling, Papertake Weekly use dimension, Cute Card Thursday weather inspired and Paper Sundaes for texture.

Stamp: Slapstick Stamps Caroling penguins
Paper: Bulk pack from Costco (green colour bought years ago), shimmer white, whisper white
Ink: Memento black
Other: prisma markers, green and ice stickles, rhinestones, cuttlebug snow dots and snowflakes embossing folders, classic/scallop circles spellbinders, ribbon
