What's Up?

What's Up?  Today I have a card using a new set from The Stamps Of Life called morepenguins2love.  This sets coordinates beautifully with the penguins4Christmas set. I used some Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride patterned papers for this card.  I love the arrows pointing up on the paper to go along with the sentiment.  I stamped my penguin guy in black and then pieced his beak and feet with bits of the orange DP I used.  I created a "sign" for him to hold with the sentiment with some more coordinating DP.  Of course, I had to add a baker's twine "loopy" bow.

I have had several folks email me about how I make my baker's twine loopy bows and I plan on doing a photo tutorial soon!  It is really very easy.  Can't wait to show you.  I may attempt a video tutorial, but I don't know if I am that savvy yet! LOL!  I may need a little help from my techie friends on that one.

I had another boy home sick yesterday with the stomach crud! YUCK! I am hoping everyone is well for turkey day next week.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
