CAS on Friday - Black, White and One Color

I had a brilliant idea of using a variety of red washi tapes that I would then cut out to create a tree for the latest CAS on Friday #272 Black, White and One Color Challenge.  It could have been so much cooler but it didn't occur to me that the washi design wouldn't count for much after I cut it out with a bottle brush tree.  Duh!

Let It Snow Penguin

I found this paper in my stash.  I recall buying it a few years ago with the intention of creating a make 'n' take for friends but that didn't happen so I'm using it now along with an older Lawn Fawn penguin. I should send this one to someone associated with UW given the purple and gold colors.

I'm entering this in Shopping out Stash #511 Whatever the Weather and Sparkles Christmas Challenge #155 Christmas Animals or Birds.

HLS Christmas - Festive Animals

It's time for a new Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge with an optional Festive Animals topping. This is the last challenge for now as the owner is taking a well-deserved life break.

I used some Lawn Fawn critters in stockings for my cards.  Aren't they cuter than cute?  I used the LF Moon & Stars Backdrop as well but am questioning that now; it seems so baby kwim.  Still cute tho.

Twinkle Lights Again, But on White

Last time I showcased these fab Spellbinders De-light-ful Christmas hot foil plates I did it on black.  This time they're on white but I did two sets, one in shades of blue with silver foil & glitter and the other multi-colored with gold.  They're just so very fun!
