happy monday :) this week over at BBTB2 our delightful lisa has chosen our cut, the penguin with umbrella from the jolly holidays cartridge. oh its a cart i dont have but so want :)  dont worry if you dont own the cartridge either just use a penguin and umbrella from a different  one or two like i did.
be sure to stop on by the bbtb blog and see what the rest of the dt has created and of course we love when you play along with us. 
heres what i came up with 
                                                                          a little card
uh oh penguins whatd ya do...that snow looks a tad yellowish .. IRL it doesnt, its actually white and sparkly. 
                                                                  a little sparkle
a little dimension 

details : cartridges~zoobaloo(penguins), pooh and friends (umbrellas)
marvy punch (snowflakes)
stickles (stardust) and rhinestones for extra flavor on those flakes
colorbox fluid chalk
hand cut snowhills with some liquid applique heated on then more stickles .
stamped sentiment from MSE (my sentiments exactly)

thanks so much for hanging out with me and my penguins your sweet words put a smile on our faces :) have a crafty day! xxxshelly

Yeah, I'm back and anxious to comment on all the DT cards. Your's is marvelous. I love the snow layers. Chuckled over the yellow tint. You always do such a fantastic job adapting to the challenges with other cartridges. Way to go, girlfriend.

Oh my, I love this card and everything about it. The papers are beautiful. The bling on the snowflakes is perfect and those cute little penguins holding the umbrellas are adorable. The dimensions and sparkly snow just bring the card alive.
