Warm North Pole Wishes....

Hello & Happy Friday Crafty Friends!
The Weekend is Here!!! YESSS!!!
I'm totally wiped out from this week...
Work has me doing all kinds of things.. I tell ya... it's
the best way to stay in shape! HAHAHA

I have my Holiday card #6 for ya today!
I'm officially ALL caught up on my holiday cards
and I can resume my normal schedule again! YAY!

Thanks for putting up with my holiday cards all week...
I wanted to keep my challenge on the up & up
and not have any excuse to complete it...
Even for a vacation!! LOL I'm a stickler sometimes! 😁

The adorable Penguin (Retired Holiday Helpers) Craftin' Desert Diva's was
another image I colored while on vacation - I used Canson Water color paper
& my Zig real brush pens to color him up! The Designer Paper is from
American Crafts (Holiday) 6x6 stack. I used a Stitched Fishtail Banner die from
Gina Marie Designs along with the Stitched Circle Die. The sentiment is
from Avery Elle (Penguin Greetings).

I even used some Washi tape on this card! The Glittered trees is Washi
tape from Recollections. The Stars & Dots are a die from Craftin'
Desert Diva's (Pocket Pieces Hello Set). I added some Clear adhesive
gems from SU & some Bitty Clear Gems from CTMH. I then added some
Clear Wink of Stella to the stars & circles for a little extra Sparkle!

I thought I would share the inside of my card as well... 
I do make sure to get the insides done on ALL my holiday cards
so I'm not scrambling later on! (Wink Wink) - I continued with
more tiny circles & stars for the inside along with the 
Apron Lace Scallop border from Fiskars.... The Sentiment
is from Scrappy Moms (Merry & Bright) -- 

Thanks so much for stopping by this entire week!
You guys ROCK!!!
