K is for Kissing

Our new challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge is

~ K is for Kissing

and when I saw the theme on the DT blog I immediately thought of this cute penguin couple. The Mrs. hung up mistletoe so there will definitely be some smooch 'in happening in this igloo. ;) I think penguins are so cute and this card will go to my hubby. For the first time ever I'll be ahead of the game with my Christmas cards. Usually it's a stressful time with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays but I'll be organized this year and that will be a treat!

I popped the penguins up on foam dots for dimension and colored them with Copic markers. The designer papers are from the Pebbles - Winter Wonderland - 6 x 6 paper pad and the white glitter paper is from a 6 x 6 paper pad called Holiday Glitter by Craft Smith. The penguins, igloo, mistletoe and Smooches sentiment are from the Penguin Pals stamp set by Taylored Expressions.

On the inside I stamped a snowflake (TE's Sparkle and Cheer) randomly in tumbled glass Distress Ink. The sentiments are from My Favorite Things and were a promotional gift.
