Just a Few Fun Announcements!

So I don't have any challenge cards for you today, but I will share a really fun Christmas card that I made with my Repeat Impressions Christmas Penguins stamps!  Check it out:  

I just can't get enough of these guys!  I also got a chance to play with my Stickles, which I haven't done in awhile!  And the black ricrac just adds a fun touch!
EDIT: So I later realized that this card was perfect to enter into the City Crafter Challenge Week 25 - Hooray for the Holidays!  =)  Check out their blog HERE!!!
