…where would we put the holes?

I’ve got a fun card to share featuring one of the cute penguins from the Penguin Farts set that was in the January Paper Door kit from Whimsy Stamps.

This card is going to a male friend and these penguins are perfect for those hard to design male cards.  Keeping it CAS I followed the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch for my layout.  I echoed the icing on my donut stack, a digi from Vanilla Arts, in my layers of cardstock to add interest to the layout.

Over at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Edna has gone on a diet to shed the Christmas kilos.  My penguin sure looks like he could stand to lose his paunch but if you can’t cheat on your diet on your birthday it just wouldn’t be fair, right?

The Crafter’s Café now offers two themes for each challenge, one of them this time is birds, the other is CAS using blue.  I definitely have a bird and my card is CAS but there’s only a snippet of blue so not sure I quite nailed both themes but luckily you only have to do one theme to enter.

My card is also my first as a DT member at Bizzy Bec’s and my contribution to this month’s challenge.  The prize is a stamp or die chosen by Bec.  You can easily double up on challenges with the always anything goes theme, maybe even playing along with one of the challenges I have.
