Easter Penguin- Jammie Day Saturday!

 Good Morning!

I do hope you can take a few minutes to browse today! Grab your cocoa, your bowl of oaties, slip on your bunny slippers and here we go!!!!!!

I had a different card all made up for today and then I stumbled on to this wonderful sketch at I {heart} sketches. Such inspiration, I had to put the other card on hold and spend my evening last night making this cutie. Funny how that works sometimes...a plan gets stuck in your head and you just have to go with it!

I used some pretty Pebbles DP and some Bazzil cardstock I won for blog candy-lovely papers!!!
You know how I love me some bright and colorful papers!

I stamped this cute little Great Impressions Easter Penguin in Versamark Black so that the penguin stamped nice and black. I carefully colored him with copics (versamark tends to smear with copics-be careful). Actually funny how a card can develop around a BOO BOO! I had this little penguin all colored and cut into a rectangle when I realized he was I cut him out with an oval nestie so that it made him stand up straight and then added  him to a rectangle-problem solved! And I  like it better this way too! A little mistake can make me think out of box and I usually come up with something I like better! How about you??  Do you like your revamped boo boo's better?

The sentiment is the same one I used last week and maybe next week and next week and next....oh can you tell I love this little stamp?

I hope you can take a few minutes to visit and browse the pretty creations posted by the DT over at the Great Impressions Stamps Blog. We try to post new inspiration everyday! You have a few more days to join in our monthly challenge HERE as well.

I will be waiting for you with my bunny slippers keeping my toesies toasty and we can visit next Saturday--- and you can see the card that was originally made for today-another fun and of course colorful creation!!!

I don't usually link up to challenges-but I have found so much inspiration out there that I am trying to visit new ones when I can find the time. Besides the I {heart}sketches, I am linking to the following challenges:

Inspire me Fridays-Anything Goes
Our Daily Bread Designs-Easter
Craft Us Crazy-Use your favorites (mine have to be bright designer papers with copics)
