Just Chillin'

The challenge this week at Cricut Cardz Challenge is to create a card using any cartridge or theme but using only red, black and white. My Create a Critter cartridge came to the rescue and as soon as I saw the penguin, my plan started to come together. On white cardstock I added a cranberry red background so that the black and white penguin and the igloo would stand out. I also added a little sparkle to it. My penguin friend is holding a flagpole out of black chenille pipe cleaner announcing that he is "Just Chillin'". I think in January this is exactly what everyone needs to do. Sit back after a hectic Christmas season and enjoy the sunshine and winter weather whether that be snowy or not. Pretty soon it will be Spring!

Stop over at Cricut Cardz Challenge and join us for Challenge #57. See you there.
