Birthdays Are the Best!

Hello, everyone! Happy Monday! I have not post for a whole week! Wow! That's a long time! At least it feels like it to me. We've been visiting the Olympic FREE venues here in Vancouver and didn't create anything at all. My kids really enjoyed being out! They didn't really mind waiting in line for all those venues. Most places are 30 mins or more of waiting. I'm glad they didn't complained at all.

I was surfing the blogsphere or blogworld, whatever people call it, and found this card that someone made (forgot which blog) and immediately knew I have to CASE it. Jarod loves penguins so I kept the idea of this card to make for his birthday.

I was able whip up this cute card for Jarod last night. He turned 11 on Sunday but he loves these penguins. The characters are from Club Penguin. If you have young children you might have heard of this site.

I used all SU! punches to make these adorable penguins!

ETA: these are the punches I used for this card
1-3/4" circle punch-body
1-1/4" circle punch-belly
large oval punch-head, arms and balloons (I cut the top of balloon free hand)
wide oval punch-feet
small oval punch-beak
1/2" circle punch-snowballs
hole puncher-snowflakes and eyes
word window punch-pole
curly label punch-sign

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Happy Stamping!
