Christmas in July Penguin Card

Hi everyone!  Today I'm sharing my first Christmas card of the year!  It has a cute penguin enjoying some red and green lollipops.  This is a happy little penguin because it's also snowing peppermint candies!  I am going to enter this into a couple challenges.  Mary from Cardz TV is having a Christmas in July challenge which is to make a Christmas card with an animal on it.  I'm also entering it into Karen's Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Sweet Summer Challenge which is to include something sweet on your project that you enjoy in the summertime.  I know this is a Christmas card but I enjoy lollipops in the summer too!  :)  I am also linking it to the 3 Girl Jam Beautiful Bows Link Up Party.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!  :)

Materials Used:
  • Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge (Penguin)
  • Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge (Base)
  • Robin's Creative Cottage Gingerbread Holiday Stamp Set
