D2D Skating Penguin Challenge Card

Can you believe it's ME??
Hello everyone! I am super happy to be able to create and share a card with you today! I have not been around much, and have not created a single paper craft since World Card Making Day!! YIKES!
So here is what I came up with for the Delightful Inspiration Artist Challenge this week, using the free digi 'Skating Penguin'. So cute!

I was inspired by many of the cards already linked to the challenge, like Kathy Winter's girl penguin, Kristine Breach's white penwork, Kendra Sand's sparkly paints, and someone had used felt snowflakes too, but I cannot remember where I saw them! So if it was you, thanks for the inspiration! :)

I was kinda stumped for a sentiment for this image. The usual 'Warm Winter Greetings' or 'Skating by...' sentiments came to mind, but my inner voice was screaming 'NO! Do something different!' So I stamped the little notebook page, and hand wrote a To Do List of fun snow activities.  Then, inside I wrote the sentiment 'We hope your winter is packed with fun!'.

I really wanted to add some sewing, but did not want to run out of time to finish the project, so I added some handstitching around the list. It satisfied my craving for now! :)
This card also qualifies for the Double Delight Challenge this week: to use Snowflakes with the D2D image! Easy!! :)
Thank you all for your wonderful comments, prayers, and hang in there encouragement! I am so glad to have all of you as my online friends! You are all so great!

Have a fantastic weekend!!
