did she say "PENGUIN PANTS"??!

yes, i did.

not to worry, it isn't the latest crazy fashion in's a super-cool line of rubber stamps!

like these:

nice, no??!

these are examples of three lovely sets from the penguin pants oeuvre: the large set is called heavenly hennas, the medium one is let's play games and the small one is made by. all of these...and loads more...can be found on the penguin pants rubber stamps website.

those good folks were kind enough to present the CAARDVARKS design team with the goodies above, which we will be featuring in a special gallery in april. at which time they'll be sponsoring a challenge for you to participate in too!

but i couldn't wait a whole month to rip into these awesome sets, i just had to make something RIGHT i used nicola's current sketch at my paper world to make a little message for the penguin pants people:

(rubber stamp: penguin pants; patterned paper: sei, love elsie, ki, paper pizzazz; cardstock: bazzill; letter stickers: love elsie; eyelets: making memories; pens: zigwriter, tombow; other: colorbox inks, psx embossing powder, foam tape)

of course, you don't have to wait until april, either, for a shot at winning some awesome rubber. the current CAARDVARKS challenge, caard trip, is being sponsored by cornish heritage farms who are offering a brand spankin' new set of clear stamps by kim hughes! you know you want ' make a transportation-themed card...then head on over and link it up before midnight on the 18th. in the meantime, why not check out the gallery?!
