christmas punch penguin

Happy Thursday to all who are visiting the charmed life blog. I have been missing in action for a week.
Usually, after thanksgiving our house gets a little hectic with putting away the fall decorations and bring out the Christmas decorations.
So I really haven't had the time to stamp, and I so missed creating.
I am not done with my Christmas cards yet so there will be a mad rush to get those finished.

Yesterday, my husband and I went to see the Rockettes Christmas show at the Benedum Theater here in Pittsburgh.

It was so fabulous. No politically correct terms in this show. They said "Merry Christmas" a lot.
The very last scene was such a surprise.
They had a live nativity scene and the wisemen came to bring gifts with camels and all.
The narrator even read the prophecies concerning Jesus from the book of Isaiah. The program said they have been doing this scene since 1933.

If you have a chance to see this show, by all means go. It is well worth the money.

Now, onto my card for today. It is actually for 2 challenges. The wednesday sketch challenge at splitcoaststampers and the Saturday crazy 4 challenges.
This challenge was to use your punches on your card.
My inspiration for this penguin is from heather summers .
She has cute ideas for use with the stampin-up punches.

My paper is stampin-up real red, very vanilla and the designer paper is from the Christmas jingle kit. I used a snowflake cuttlebug folder to emboss the background and some stampendous red dots on the snowflakes.

well, it's a wrap for another day. I really like hearing from all of you so let me know what you think of this little penguin.
card recipe:
