Inspired by the Big freeze

I thought I would share some more punch art with you, I have really enjoyed using my Stampin' Up! punches to create something new. I have used several different punches to make some Penguins, I'm sure if this weather keeps up I will spot some in my garden soon!!!  It is so cold out there!!

The papers are form the Jolly Holiday Christmas collection, with some gorgeous Old Olive satin ribbon and a punched Very Vanilla border layered under the ribbon.  I thought the penguin looked cute balanced on the top of the presents, I used Old Olive taffeta ribbon here. Crystal effects has been added to the eyes to give them a raised finish.

Punches used are the extra large oval, 1/8", 1/4", 1/2",  11/4" circles, star and 5petal flower punch.

I have a mountain of ironing I'm hoping to get through this weekend!!!  Then I think I'm going to take advantage of being stuck at home and get on with wrapping some of the Christmas presents I have bought.  Hope you all have a good weekend and stay safe and warm.

Love this card. The DP is lovely and that penguin is so cute.

It's really cold here too and now we've got lots of ice as well as lots of snow!
