Sweet n' Sassy's Newest Release!

I love penguins! There is something so endearing about these animals. So this brand new set from Sweet n' Sassy (released tomorrow!) was right up my alley. I did some paper piecing on the mother penguin. The paper is by Creative Imaginations. I used The scalloped edges for the edge of the card as well. I cuttlebugged the Lasting Impression's paper. I have been on a bit of a felt kick......I'm telling ya that if it is on my desk I am using it! (Just like that dang KI paper!) So I cut the felt into tiny hearts and used a Sharpie to outline the edges. I added a button brad and cut up the sentiment. And there ya have it, a shabified penguin!

Just an FYI, my card yesterday mistakingly stated that those plant thingys were "Pussywillows." My MIL informed me that they are NOT Pussywillows, they ARE cat tails. Obviously, I need to go back to science class! So Simone, you were right........but at least I made ya laugh!

Oh, wow, what awesome penguins. WOW!!!

I didn't get to see the "pussywillow" thing. That's funny. We always called them cat-o-nine tails. Funny slip, Michele!

We actually do have pussywillows here, and they're just starting to bloom. In January. In the freezing cold.
