Batch 3 - Christmas Cards - "Happy Penguins"

It's so nice to hear the pitter-patter of rain for a change especially since it's been so HOT lately, even in the town I live in which is usually cool.  

Here's another batch of Christmas cards I pumped out. I must thank my sweet cuz for the darling sweet penguin image & die by Poppy Stamps she sent me last year.  My mojo was "on vacation" last year but kicked in this year for a holiday idea....yay!  THANK YOU, THANK YOU CUZ!!!!

Here are 6 of them......

OMGosh, I must share this punch with you.  Have you ever seen a punch like this one????   It was probably the very first punch I ever purchased and that was years ago.  Until now, I never used it and would you believe I tried to sell it for a quarter at a rummage sale?  Thankfully, no one bought it because I've now made good use of it creating the little scene on the cards above and I plan to keep it.  It looks so ancient yah? LOL.

Other fun and crafty products used:
DP from stash
Lace punch by Martha Stewart
Spellbinder dies
Sentiment - Laser cut from and by Island Scrapbooking
Snowflake punch by Martha Stewart
Glitter paper
Pearl Pen by VIVA from Stamps n Memories 

I'm entering the first card in the following challenges:
Bugaboo Stamps Catch the Bug Challenge - "October - Anything Goes"
Crafty Catz - "Challenge 201 - Anything Goes"
Christmas Stampin All Year Long - "Challenge 36 - Circles" (Including those on the last punch)
