I Love You This Much!


Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Day of the Month Card Club Challenge: Penguin Awareness Day. I have to admit that lately I feel like I'm living in Antarctica with the penguins---it's been soooo cold and crazy windy here. And the forecast is calling for it to get even worse with wind chill factors at minus 25F on Sunday night and into Monday. Brrrr!!!

Well...January 20, 2024 is Penguin Awareness Day, so let's celebrate these adorable creatures with a card!

This is the Coloring Layering Baby Penguin from Hero Arts. So sweet, right?!?!!!

My card layout/fold was inspired by Kelly Acheson. Thank you, Kelly!!! You can find the directions for making this style of card on her blog

Here's a view of it opened up:

I always enjoy trying out different card folds and this is a fun one!

And of course I made a second one...same card just changed up the color:
