Be Happy Penguin from Stamps Happen, Inc.

Coffee of the Day - Mexico Blend from Larry's Beans

Using one of my fun new stamps by Stamps Happen, Inc. from the Janlynn Corporation. As soon as I saw this little guy I knew I had to have him! I have a thing about penguin stamps! and you know me and polka dots! I used strictly my watercolor brush for all of the coloring here. The main image was cut out free hand to add a little extra whimsy and then matted on some VERY old SU! patterned paper. The cs base is baja breeze, as are the fun buttons. I love this button collection! I tied them up with some baker's twine from Martha Stewart and of course used my ever-handy white craft ink. The main image is also popped up with foam tape. I used the white gel pen to accent the candy cane and snowflake dots and make the white 'pop'.

Almost all of our snow has melted, with temps now in the mid 50's. It is just gorgeous! Hope the sun is shining where you are! If not, then just imagine it is!

Do you have a gazillion stamps or what? I don't think I have seen you use the same stamp twice. Very cute BTW!
