It's a Blog Hop!

The Angel Company™ has great little freebie stamps when one has a qualifying order of $30 or more and we're using those as the focal point of this hop! This hop is sponsored by Paper Wings, a favorite place of mine to see great works of art and inspiration using TAC stamps.

I chose the little Cuddly Penguin GWP found on page 6 of the Fall Supplement. He is just so cute!

I used DCWV white core cardstock, a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and my Wizard to make the "squares". I sanded the embossed card stock to make the embossing pop. I colored the white satin ribbon and penguin with Copic markers (G19, T7, T5, N1, R37, B41, YR21, and Blender). I layered the penguin and green on black card stock and assembled all on a kraft card base.

I have a Bow Easy tool which REALLY helps making great bows. You can't see it but I used the Stardust Clear Gel pen to the eyes to give them a glimmer.

Please check out these angels' blogs for more inspiration:

Very cute - this is one of those "go to" stamps and the best part is it was FREE. I am glad you got to play this time despite your Moms surgery. Saying prayers.

Great card - the embossing and the that cute little penguin are very eye catching.
