Penguin Friends

Hello my friends and Happy New Year's Eve!  I can't believe it's the end of 2016. The year has really flown by, but I'm not sad to see if pass. It's been quite a year. I'm ending the year with an adorable kitten that I am trying to find a home for. Her mom is one of my outside cats that I have not been able to trap yet in order to have her spayed. I will be attempting that again this weekend.

It's time now to get on with the business at hand with a new post for Creatalicious. Our theme for this challenge is Anything Goes with the Optional New Year's/Wishes.

Materials Used:
  • Image - The Paper Shelter - Penguin Friends
  • Sentiment - Computer Generated
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Bashful Blue; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Basic Gray - Juniper Berry Collection
  • Accessories - 1 3/8" round punch; 1 1/2" round punch; lace and rick rack from my stash
  • Copic Markers: B0000, B000, B00, B14, B60; E42, E44, E47; E50, E51, E53; C2, C3, C7; R01, R35, R45, R59; Y17, Y19, Y38, Y26
 I found this saying in a Vellum stack that I've been hoarding.  It's from the DCWV Summer collection which I'm sure is not available anymore, but I thought the saying was very appropriate for this card and a good thought to start off 2017.

I hope you'll hop on over to the Creatalicious Challenge and join in the fun. The theme is optional so it's always Anything Goes. The twist is up to you whether you want to use it or not.  You could be the winner of this awesome prize from our sponsor or chosen as one of the Top 3.  Good luck!

Prize - $15 Gift Certificate


  1. A gorgeous card Maggie - love your colouring!!

  2. Maggie, your card is so sweet! I love the simplicity to your card and the chevron stripes!I do hope you are able to find a home for the sweet kitty :) Happy New year!

  3. Well, now, that's about the most adorable new year's card I've seen yet! I do love the inside verse, as well, including how the word "celebrate" is faint in the background. Gives me ideas. I received some vintage Santa happy mail the other day. All the Christmas cards I received are still on display, but other decorations have been put away. I cherish those cards. I hope your kitty finds a good home. Happy 2017!

  4. How darling Maggie! I love the sweet image and your soft colors. The penguin image with the little heart above its head is too cute! Yes, 2106 flew by. I sure hope the kittie does well and finds a nice home : )

  5. Such an adorable image and pretty card!

  6. Happy New Year!!! Cute, cute card. I love the colors and the DP you used.

  7. What cute images Paper Shelter has. I'm going to have to check them out. Look forward to seeing more from you in 2017! Creative Blessings!
