Sleigh Full of Toys

I couldn't resist getting the Stampin Up set Sleigh Full of Toys on eBay the other day. I plan to use the reindeer in that set for another project. I found that the penguin (yes, more penguins) and the sleigh were actually quite cute too once I got the set in my hands. I decided the sleigh would be perfect for my card using Get Sketchy's Sketch 15 (with bonus of paper piecing) and again the SPCC #24 Color Combo.

So I made a little fun winter scene for my card. The little penguin is helping Santa fill up his sleigh by tossing presents. His pile is getting quite precarious don't you think? And can you believe all those presents are paper pieced? Yes, I'm crazy...but it was kinda fun. Armed with my trusty little Fiskers cutter makes things much easier!

I hope you enjoy and thanks for coming by to visit!

EDIT: And just so DH is happy, I wanted to let you know that he helped out with my final touches to this card and helped (with yes or no answers) on various things I wanted to try with it. Eventually we both just liked it as this simple little scene. I hope you agree! :) He was the one that wanted the flying package. Hee hee!
