~Having Fun With Penguins~

Wow it's been awhile. Surprised I remember how to post on here. So much has happened over the past month or so. My youngest son had a wreck last month and it totally knocked the sails out from beneath me, but I think we're slowly getting back to normal again. A few more weeks and he gets his cast off and starts rehab. It could've been so much worse, so we're blessed that he was able to walk away with a few broken bones. 

Anyways, with everything going on my mojo totally left me. I wasn't sure when and if it would return. Then an email came through from The Cutting Cafe, and it was some fun new items Regina was releasing. In it was a set called Fun with Penguins, and she was so right, it was so much fun to play with!! As soon as I seen that cute little penguin, something sparked and I had to play with it!!! So with that, I set off to see what fun I could have with him, and fun I had. Put it this way, I think I cut him out with my Pazzles and Make The Cut around 9pm last night and the next time I looked at my clock it was 4:30am. Then I came back in tonight and put him together once everything was good and dry.  Everything I used on my cute little penguin comes in the set, including the sentiment you see on the flag, but you'll have many choices if you want to give as a birthday present and so forth.
I hope you enjoy checking out the pictures and hope you'll check The Cutting Cafe store for your own dose of fun and crafting mojo!!! Most all of the files and sets come in PDF, WPC and SVG format.
and below you can see the Glossy Accents I added to the front and back of the body to give it a shine
