Baby, It's Cold Outside!

As my favorite holiday song goes "Baby it's Cold Outside!"! We are still in the 20-30 degrees (f) range for our weather and that's just too cold for me! But on the positive side, it means I stay home and have WAY more craft time!

Here is one of the cards I did for a Holiday card commission. It features Penquin's Little Letter by Meljen Designs--newly released and available at Whimsy Stamps.

I just received this image today and I immeadiately printed it out! I had to use it and it was so much fun to color! I really worked hard on the whole light source thing for my shading AND worked to get the concept of coloring black with the "C's" down. I think it turned out really nice!

The color inspiration came from this weeks Color Combination Challenge #300 on Splitcoast...which was to pick an old color combo and use it. I went with CC124: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Old Olive. It was a yummy combo and my new paper worked perfectly!

And in rare form, I even decorated the inside of my card! I used a layout that my friend Gloria used for one of her cards and I liked how it turned out. This sentiment is from the set Hugs And Kisses by Paper Makeup Stamps.
I am working on a card which coordinates with this one and I realised I need to invest in another pack of Pretty In Pink cardstock! Don't you hate it when you realise you only have like 2 pieces left?!

Before I even clicked on your blog I having been singing "Baby, it's cold outside" in my head for about the last 1/2 hr, I can't get it out of my head!! LOL Worse part is, I have the "GLEE" version going on in my head. If you don't watch GLEE you wouldn't know what that meant, but anyways...I LOVE your card. I love the colors and the layout..it's just so cute!! The penguin is adorable!!
