With love -- for Jan's Digi Stamps

It's the first Monday of the month (and the new year!), so it's time for a new challenge at Jan's Digi Stamps Challenges, where they are always Anything Goes, all the time!  Link up whatever you are creating, even if it isn't a paper craft.  We'd love to see it!

Jan has a number of adorable penguin sets.  She does them VERY well.  She recently released this Puttin' on the Ritz set, and I just had to play with it! 

All of Jan's sets come with several images that are both pre-colored and in black & white, then a few different sentiments that fit the theme of the set.  I used a black & white image here and colored it with Copic markers.

I plan to use this for hubby's valentine's card.  He spent 6 months in Antarctica so he has a thing for penguins!  He will adore this one!

I cut out the rose card base on my Silhouette Cameo, using a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.  The 'With Love' Sentiment is a die from Crafter's Companion.  The die cut rose and the small stitched heart are dies from Diamond Press.

I hope now that the busy Christmas season is over, you have more time to craft (which will translate into more time to join challenges).  I'd love to see you linked up at Jan's Digi Stamps Challenges this next 2 weeks!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
D.L. Art -- January Linky Party
QKR Stampede -- ATG
Cute Card Thursday -- ATG
2 Crafty Critter Crazies -- ATG with a critter
Crafty Animals -- ATG with an animal
