Our DECEMBER Release will focus on the themes:
.....The Holidays are Upon Us.....
*~* Winter *~*

A wide array of products were created to be able to share

of this Blog Hop weekend.

All New Products will be added to the SHOP
for you to Purchase and to start creating your very own
Holiday Celebration Masterpieces!!!
I have two projects with a similar theme for today's hop.
Many years ago, my husband spent six months working in Antarctica.  Ever since then, penguins have been near and dear to him. We have many penguin ornaments and adornments around at Christmastime. Because of his love of the bird, I made him these:
Oh, yeah.  He'll like a few treats in this penguin treat box, and the step card penguin is on an action spring.  Even big boys like interactive cards! And, of course, the Pinque Peacock embellishments make them "Oh-so-fun!!"
Here's some close ups of each project:
My husband is going to know just how much I love him because I actually used glitter on this project.  I seriously avoid the stuff at all costs.  But that big ole penguin belly was just screaming for it, so I added a ton of it to the whole thing, and to the pom pom and brim of his hat. And, yes, I have now added it to the entire house.  It happens every time.
Here's a closeup of the felt popper and 3/4 inch red fabric covered button I used on this.

You can find these felt poppers here in the Pinque Peacock store.  They work brilliantly on 3D projects like this one. And the red 3/4 inch fabric covered button just screams Christmas, doesn't it?
How about a look at the side of the box to see how big it is?

I used the Joy's Life Wintery Puns stamp set on this penguin treat box.  The box is a cutting file from The Cutting Café.
Moving on to the interactive card...

I used another felt popper and 3/4 inch red fabric covered button on this card.  Don't they add so much to this cute card?
Both this step card and the penguin are cutting files from The Cutting Café.  I used two stamp sets from Joy's Life on this card:  "Wintery Puns", and "Oh Christmas Puns".
The card stock and designer paper on these projects is all from Close To My Heart.  There's also a Viva Décor Pearl Pen on the penguin's eyes in anthracite.
Here's another view of the card that shows off the embellishments a little better:
Don't you LOVE that black/red combo on the felt popper and button?  It matches my penguin so nicely!
That's it for me.  I've got lots to do before Christmas, so I better get busy!
