Special Delivery

I have far less Christmas cards made than usual for this time of year, and I need to start building up my stash. So for my "Oldie but Goodie" card over at Catch the Bug I used the image Penguin snowflake, colored with Promarkers and a white gel pen.
The envelope is made with a Lawn Fawn stamp and the sentiment came free with a magazine.
I made a cloudy sky with my own made stencil and cut the panel with a wonky stitched die. Two DPs and a die cut snowflake. It's a non fussy and postage friendly card.

This card is for:
Sparkles Forum Christmas - #87 Feature a Creature
Winter Wonderland – ANIMALS
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - #378 Anything Christmas Goes

This is so cute & gorgeous Pia. I don't think I have made any Christmas ones so far this year. I really don't seem to have time to craft these days. I am spending all my time at The Salvation Army and helping out a friend that is going through a bad time.
