Papertake Weekly - Christmas Crackers

Hey everyone! It's the Tuesday before Thanksgiving! If you're in the states, are you getting ready to stuff yourself as well as that turkey?? I know I sure am! My dear Mom instilled a love of Thanksgiving in me. It was always such a wonderful family Holiday when everyone spent the day together eating and having a fabulous time.  So anyway, onto the reason you're here! It's time for a new challenge from Papertake Weekly, and this week the challenge is Christmas Crackers sponsored by Digital Delights. Dawny is asking you to make your Christmas favorites, and penguins and snowflakes are a couple of my faves. And so is wishing upon a star. I love helping the grandkids wish upon the first star they see at night.

I do love Christmas penguins, and this little cutie from Wild Rose Studio is one of the cutest!!! LOVE him!! He's colored with Copic markers and then cut out with circle Nesties and framed with petite scalloped Nesties. The papers I used are Basic Grey matted with Bazzill cardstock.  The trees are a stamp from Magnolia-licious, but I don't see them in stock right now.

Peeking out from behind the trees is a strip of snowflakes glittered up with Stickles from a Martha Stewart punch. I also used a MS iccle border punch, also glittered up with Stickles. The large snowflake was cut with my Cricut Expression and Christmas cartridge from Hallmark Scrapbook. There's lots of machine stitching as well.

I took this picture before I added the snowflake strip on the inside of the card. But this shows you a little of the dimension on the card. The bow is made with May Arts silk ribbon and it's centered with a Wild Orchid Crafts flower and yet another Martha Stewart branch punch. So that's it for me today! Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly and check out all the amazing creations by my teamies, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! If you're celebrating Thanksgiving this week, may you and your family have a wonderful Holiday! Don't forget to wish upon that star!! Hugs!
