Hello Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #37

 I've been finding little moments here and there to hide away in my scrap room to try new card challenges.  I'm finding that I am able to create new cards faster that way.  Hooray!

This week I've tried a few challenges.  This one is for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge
Here is my winter card using this sketch.
This  little penguin from the Close To My Heart 
(Fall/Winter idea book - Hostess Collection* Wintry Wishes - C1560) has been one of my favorite go-to stamp set for my January cards.  His earmuffs are fuzzy which you might not be able to see here.  I used some fun flock for those.  His snowball is glittery (CTMH Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel*).

Other supplies used on this card - all available from Close To My Heart 
  • Black Cardstock
  • Blue B&T duo is from the Pro-Player paper packet - X7172B
  • Silver Glitz Glitter Gel* - Z1482
  • Silver Shimmer Trim - Z1799
  • Black Shimmer Trim -  Z1809
  • Holiday Tags - D1560
Please note that any of the starred* items will be retiring at the end of January.  So if you love this little penguin,  you'd need to host a gathering, workshop, or a catalog gathering by January 31rst to qualify to get him.  


  1. I love that stamp set too. This is a fun card. Thanks for playing along with us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
