Winter Friend in Winterland

Hi, folks! It's Monday and around here the air is getting colder and I'm personally hoping for snow! While I wait I have a great little penguin to share with you today from the Stampendous set Winter Friends.

Isn't he the cutest ever! He has two other wintry friends, an owl and a snowman, that share cute hats and icons for a fun exchange of gifts!

This little card came together quickly with a handmade pattern paper using the free template included in the stamp set. It's snowflakes!!!!! If you want to know more information about the card just keep scrolling down the post, but I wanted to tell you that you can find more inspiration over on the Stampendous blog! Be sure to stop by there.
