I have three projects for you to check out today. The first is a card that celebrates the Hanukkah season.

The Menorah is here and the verse is in set 388 

Everyone likes penguins so here are two cards from the new Pengie sets.


Here he is, Sir Pengie now appearing in set 438. This guy just stole my heart. 

That big snowflake is covered with Sparkling Snow glitter G1003


And next on my agenda is a card using Noelle's Pengie and she can be found in set 439.

Those snowflakes were made using holographic paper I have in my stash and it really makes those snowflakes stand out.

Now, before you move to the next blog, please leave a comment to be eligible for a chance to win a great prize. The next designer you will be visiting is Julie Zippel. Julie has a really great creation for you to check out.

Thanks for stopping by my blog , have a great day and I will see you soon.

Such sparkly, innovative cards! Noele looks like she is walking beneath Christmas-light-filled snow flakes! Sir Pengie looks lonely, despite all the beautiful elements keeping him company on your card. Love what mirror cardstock and holographic CS can do to a card! Thank you for presenting 2 pretty cards to the blog hop, Barbara!

I miss all the inspiration from all of you in KY.
The snowflake theme with some cactus might work for me here in AZ

What a great Hanukah card. I love that it is out of the box for traditional colors. This is so appropriate for anyone.

Are you waiting for winter, so soon? The penguins are ready to rock and roll on the show and ice.

Barbara, thanks for sharing with us. All 3 of your cards have given me ideas for cards of my own, without exactly scraplifting yours! I, too, really like holographic snowflakes.
