I have to admit...I had a little trouble working on my first Christmas project!  After all, I have only just recently come to terms with the fact that the summer is over...  Today in fact it rained pretty steadily just to drive the point home!  Bye Bye sweet sunshine.  Not that we get much here in the Pacific Northwest. 

This cute little Penguin is by Digi Doodle Stamps and I figured it would be perfect for a Holiday Gift Tag!  I am entering this project in the digidoodleshopsbest.blogspot.com distressing challenge, the Christmas Tag challenge at caardvarks.blogspot.com and the Christmas challenge at thesecretcraftersaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com.  Well with this project I have officially begun my 2010 Holiday Season.  Maybe I'll get really lucky and finish all my Christmas Cards and Projects early thanks to these challenges and then I won't have to stay up late every night in early December working on them!!! (Not that that has ever happened to me!)


  1. What a lovely little tag, thanks for joining us at Digi Doodle Shops Best.

  2. Well you did beautifully! This little guy was not easy to draw, for the same reason. I couldn't get my brain to think "Christmas". I love this little tag, and I am sure whoever receives it will be delighted. Thank you so much for doing such a fab job,and for entering it in our challenge at Digi Doodle Shop's Best.
