DL.ART Thankful Thursday #172 - Penguins or Black, White, Yellow

Happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! It's been a chilly one here with snow and ice and wind. Ugh. I'm so ready for spring. It's time for another Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART. The theme is perfect for the frosty temps..penguins!! Or you can use the colors black, white and yellow if you prefer. If you used the code l01210 you will get 10% off your order at DL.ART!!


I had the perfect stamp/die set...these adorable penguins from Hampton Art that my dear friend Sherrie sent to me last year!! Thank you again, Sherrie!! Aren't they the cutest??!! I thought I'd have my little penguin couple taking a stroll through a snowy forest :)


I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder. The trees are a Sizzix Birch Trees die. I popped them up with foam tape for some dimension from the background. The hills are a Lawn Fawn Hillside Border die. They were given an dusting of snow with a DecoArt Snow Writer. The penguins shine from a Wink of Stella pen. The gorgeous ribbon is Midnight Black from The Newspaper Bundle.


I am entering this in following challenges:

1. Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes

Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have come up with for this challenge. Then link up your penguin or black, white and yellow projects. I can't wait to see what you create :)
