Paper Pieced Penguin

Here we are in the most hazy, hottest, humid weather in Georgia...and I am thinking cool, frosty, penguins. Don't you love watching the nature shows with these adorable little guys swimming and playing in their tuxedos!!! This card was created for the Our Creative Corner challenge. Their challenge is "Christmas in August". Also there is a message as follows:

Last week we announced we are looking for a few girls to join the OCC Design Team. If you are interested in a spot, please leave your name HERE and include DT after your name. You will have until August 20th to apply, we then will announce the NEW DT September 1st.

How exciting!!! Good luck to everyone trying out.

No stamping today except for the sentiment. I love to paper piece. It's like putting a puzzle together. This penguin was paper pieced, the snowflakes are a punch. I did some faux stitching and glittered things up with stickles. The sentiment is something I got last year and don't remember the company or name. It was before I knew keeping all that stuff was important. Thanks for stopping by today and come join us in the challenge. It's great to get some Christmas cards done now, so that you are not rushing when Christmas is here!
