Peachy Keen Challenge #11

I'm having a 'Peachy' week aren't I!

I can't stop playing with this set. He's from the set PK-327 Winter Peekers and Phrases, (same as the previous two cards I did).
The more I use 'em, the more I think of to do with them.
I love this sample I made for Peachy Keen today. That Peeking Penguin is just so CUTE!

I cut a circle out of the base card with my Nestie and placed penguin behind.
Cut out his paws/flippers? and mounted them with foam pads onto the circle.
On hindsight, I could've just cut the penguin out with the Nestie and stuck it onto the base card, but I'm not that quick! LOL
I quite like the extra detail though of him peeking through the hole created.
I sprinkled some Glamour Dust on the top of things to resemble frost.
The DP is from a pad of 8" x 8" papers from Papermania, called 'Home for Christmas' and I reckon it's just the ticket for Percy Penguin.
YEP! I've just Christened him Percy! LOL
Snowflakes are brads I bought last year from errrm, no idea.
The Merry Christmas is a brad and a devil to attach to the card, even with me Big Bite!!

Please hop on over to the Peachy Keen blog and join in with our challenges. There's a great prize on offer and you have two weeks to make your project.
While you are there, you'll see the fabulous cards created by the other DT members. Awesome!

Well, I've got to go out now as Mum is having a new chair delivered and I have to supervise.
Have a wonderful day. Thank you all for coming by my blog and leaving your treasured comments.
Back later! Viv xxx
