Warmest Wishes

So, I had a card swap to do...while unpacking and organizing my new craft room I found this kit.  I decided that it would be perfect.  Little info...I bought this kit about 10 years ago because I wanted the penguin brass template and the only way you could get it was in the kit.  So, the kit contains the printed penguins, card bases, envelopes and seals.  I thought this would be a pretty easy card to do...I knew I would end up adding to it, but still pretty easy.  After all, the main thing was to line up the printed penguins on the brass template on the light box and trace.  Sounds pretty easy, right?  NOT!  By the time I did all 8 of the cards my hands were aching.  I had to take a break before going on.  I did go on...now I had to cut out all the penguins.  Finally, I had all my pieces ready...I pop dotted the penguin, added a torn piece of glitter card stock for a snow bank and a sparkly snowflake.  I would have liked to add Stickles to the hearts...but they are currently MIA in one of the few boxes left to unpack.
