Winter Blast Penguins!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. Life has gotten in the way a little bit. We recently celebrated DH's birthday on Monday which involved home cooking and a full house. You can definitely tell we have single guys in our group of friends...they were most excited for the home cooked meal of lasagna. Silly boys! DH on the other hand says he's old cause he's a married man in a group of bachelors, but I think he appreciates coming home to a cooked meal most nights. ;)

I got back into making a few cards now though. I wanted to especially do the challenges up at Card Positioning Systems and SPCC. This card combines both! I went with the printed paper, eventually decided it was time to play with my MFT Winter Blast set and made sure a little red was in the finished product. I think it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself. I hope you agree! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check the links to enter yourself!

Haha, yeah, I think most guys appreciate the home cooked meal concept over being "old". Love the fun way you combined the layout and the colors. Super cuuute!
