CCEE1801 Waddle you do in 2018?


Happy 2018!

I am starting the year off for the CCEE Stampers' challenges for January. So, we are using a play on the word Waddle, and the question to you is "Waddle you do in 2018?"  The challenge is to use a penguin or any other animal that lives where it is cold.  

My little penguin is hoping that 2018 might include a vacation to a warmer climate for him. 
I used some fun paper from a summery pad from Bo Bunny. The stamp is an old retired stamp that someone gave me who had given up their stamping addiction. I guess it is safe to safe that this addiction is something with which  I will always be afflicted.  

I always try to make a stamping resolution for the new year, so this year is to declutter the stamp room,  use up my scrap piles, and let some old stamps see some ink this year. So this card is making use of two of those resolutions with the use of this stamp and the little punched out squares on this from scraps left over from something else. 

Maybe your resolution could me to join us in our challenges this year. Check out all the details every week over on the CCEE Stampers blog that is found HERE.  There you will also see the designs for each challenge done by me and  my fellow team members: Frances, Lois, Anne, Vicky, Lynn, Kelly, and Marianne. We all wish you a very happy 2018!

What a fun card, Liz! I'm ready for CA myself, as we hunker down. the blizzard has already started here (12 to 16 inches predicted!). I love the bright summer colors. Great idea, and perfectly crafted.

Ha! Ha! Ha! I love your penguin looking for a vacation! Don't tell him to come to Florida right now -- it's 32 degrees out there -- maybe Hawaii!
