P is for...

...presents, penguin, and "please plan to play" with us during the final week of "no time like the presents" at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥! how do you do that, you ask? just make a holiday card that has an image of a present OR which includes a bit of recycled giftwrap in the design. easy, peasy! here's my card:

penguin cut from adorable holiday giftwrap; patterned paper: echo park, doodlebug; glossy black cardstock: ranger: glittery cardstock present stickers: tpc studios; ink: colorbox; googly eyes: michaels; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, scotch gluestick, mini gluedots

yep, i've got both elements again! the presents-- which are some utterly ANCIENT cardstock stickers-- are pretty obvious, but can you see the giftwrap? let me give you a hint: it's the PENGUIN!!!!!!!!!!!

this little dude and a bunch of his brethern... (or possibly sisteren? it's hard to tell with penguins, lol; at least it's hard for us humans to tell, the penguins seem to do ok!) ...were on the paper that my gifts from miss gina were wrapped in, and seriously, before i had even really properly looked at the gifts i was already planning to glue the least wrinkly penguins to some plain white cardstock so i could fussy cut them. a decision i totally stand by, as a matter of fact! i've used the sketch half of the first fusion challenge of 2017 and i wish them a very happy third anniversary, as well!
