A Frosty, Snowy Penguin Tag

Coffee of the Day - Gingerbread

Well today is going to be a busy one for me with lots of baking going on. how about you? how are your preparations for Christmas going? I still need to wrap gifts, too, but that can wait another day or so. ;) we always have someone wrapping a few on Christmas morning..... grins!

I have a fun little tag to show you this morning using a happy little penguin image from Scrapper's Delights. They have a challenge in their Facebook group to use this image on either a tag or an ornament. I love to make tags, so it was an easy choice for me.

I created the bg on the tag using a mix of gelatos (this really shines and sparkles irl!!) and white Mr. Huey's spray mist. the drifts were hand cut from glittered tissue paper. pom pom trim, baker's twine, button, sequins, and a mini white sisal tree complete it all. :)  oh yes, I added stickles to our penguin friend's hat and some polka dots with a white gel pen.

be on the lookout for some fun and new things happening here on my blog in the new year. not only am I trying something completely new for me, but I am getting my toes wet again in the DT arena after my hurtful experiences this year. can't let a few unfortunate people keep me from doing what I enjoy, that is for certain! life is way to short for grudges and bitterness, folks. gotta keep it in the rearview mirror! ;)

enjoy these last few days getting ready for Christmas! don't forget to stop every once in a while and enjoy the beauty of all this season stands for. :)
