Chilly Christmas Wishes

Hello friends and followers.

It's really looking like Christmas at my house.
We have our tree and Christmas decorations up.
This is the earliest I have done it in about 15 years!
The Christmas decorating then turned into a massive
clean out of the storage closet area - UGH!
This then led me to exclaim "I am NEVER purchasing another
Christmas decoration". Which I quickly revised to say  "At least not
until I get rid of some more stuff".  LOL.
Hmmm... I think I've said that about my crafting supplies too.

I'm back again with another card to share with you
that I am using as my third entry
for the Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Guest contest.
Kimmie says we can enter as many times as we like
(until the 14th of December).  I LOVE Kraftin' Kimmie stamps
so much that I just can't help myself!  I really
would like to be a Krafty Guest Designer again.
So...I figure it can't hurt my chances by
entering as many times as I can - he he.

Here's my card:
Stamp & sentiment from "Just Chillin'!" by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Since I plan to give this card to someone right away 
I finished the inside (often I don't finish the inside until later).
Sentiment from "Christmas Cheer" and penguin from "Just Chillin'"

I CASEd Krafty Gal Tracy's style on this -
she often stamps an image from the set on the 
inside of the card too.  Fun huh?

Aren't these little penguins just about 
the cutest thing you ever saw?   

Confession time...both the stamp set and papers are new 
and I haven't yet gotten rid of anything else.
What??? Did I say I wouldn't buy anything else
until I got rid of something first?? No Way!
I mean how could I help myself when this is so stinkin' cute?  
I guess I should never say NEVER - hahahaha!

Okay so enough from me for now.
