Cards That Care Week - Day Four!

Hello, friends!  I'm here with day four of my very own "Cards That Care Week."  I've sent in all of these cards to the wonderful card drive run by Vera Yates and Jennifer sure to check it out HERE and consider sending in some cards -- there is still time!

Did you happen to see the blog hop prize winner list yesterday?  I was SO excited to see that I was one of the lucky random winners!  Even better...I won four Hero Arts stamps of my choice!   BEST PRIZE EVER!  (Thank you so much, Vera and Jennifer!)

OK, now on to my card.

I have loved this fun little Penny Black Arctic Bus stamp since the day I bought it.  It makes me smile.  These little penguins sure do know how to have fun!  Check out the one in the back...he's going one-handed, for heaven's sakes!  (Livin' on the wild side, for sure!)

I embossed the penguin image in black, water colored the image, then added an SRM Sticker sentiment across the bottom.  I dry embossed the entire card using the Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder, rounded the bottom corners, and added the red ribbon as a final touch.  

I also added some Gelly Roll Stardust Clear glitter pen to the fur of their hats...can you see it?

That does it for today...tomorrow's cards are a bit more traditional. 
Until then...have a good one!
