Penguins on Parade

Don't you just love Penguins. They are naturally dressed in their Christmas finery for the Holidays with their tuxedo coloring. This guy is no exception. I paper pieced this little fellow and added lots of frosty glittered snowflakes. This year I have really used my Spellbinders Snowflake dies. I really love this snowflake pictured here and made many of them and have glittered all of them. I can't seem to get enough glitter!!!!
This is the inside of the card. This penguin paper is actually last years Debbie Mumm stack. The larger penguins were on one of the sheets. It's really pretty paper and perfect with my paper pieced penguin. The little penguin on the envelope is from Michael's on their end cap display where all the .99 cent stickers are.I thought I would share some more decorations from my home again today. This is the bottom shelf of my bookcase in my foyer. The Christmas Tree is battery operated and lights up. It is from the Boyds Bear Collection that was produced and distributed by "The Danbury Mint". You can see my little Boyds Bear Train in front of it. Of course, the plush bears are also Boyds and I must say are so soft and cuddly when you hold them. The frames hold pictures of my boys visiting Santa when they were precious!!!!

Thanks for stopping by. I have been busy baking cookies. I made several dozen....I think something like 10 dozen of Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip cookies. Mmmm, I will be dieting the first of the year!!! LOL
