Snowflakes, Sparkle, Spots, Stripes, Swirls

What a beautiful Monday this has turned out to be. Typically, I check the reader for the blogs I follow to see who has made what and what challenges are out there. A LOT of times, I just look because sometimes my crafty brain cells are just not up to par and sometimes the card has to be sent to that special file (trash bin). But today, I can get into another challenge - that wasn't easy, by the way.

Pollycraft Monday has a great design team that would have no problem with the challenges and always manages to put out some delightful cards to sample and inspire you. Usually, I just go ooh-ahh...and hope to one day create something spectacular like theirs.

Today is not that day. My card isn't spectacular but it did meet all five parts of the challenge: snowflakes, sparkle, spots, stripes, and swirls. My paper just so happened to have snowflakes on it, a little sparkle, some spots; so I added more sparkle to the swirls; and added a strip of striped paper. My little penguin is so cute, all tangled up in the lights., it's cold outside!!

What a great idea for a blog! Keep up the great work! I used to make lots and lots of cards before I became a mini album junkie! Now I just make them occasionally for close family and friends. Thanks for stopping by and all your kind words!
