Ice Fishing - Thanks Snow Much (Deedee's Digis image)

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my new Bloglovin' follower - Hippieaud Ernst - so nice to have you here! 

I've got insomnia tonight, so I'm making cards!  I need a few thank-you cards for Christmas gifts I received.  Here's one featuring the January Digi of the Month at Deedee's Digis. Have you heard the good news? This was supposed to be the final challenge over at Deedee's, and she was going to close shop due to the new VAT rules, but she has found a way to stay open - Yay!  So if you haven't been playing along at Deedee's, now is a great time to join! The Digi of the Month is free!  It's called Ice Fishing and here's my card with the adorable penguin.

I used one of the pre-coloured images this time, but if you enjoy colouring, you can use the non-coloured version. Deedee's sets include all the options.

For the background, I stamped a snowflake cluster in Ancient Page Lavender. I added glitter tape to create a landscape. There are two layers; one is cut by hand and the other die-cut with Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders, used upside down so it wouldn't be stitched.  The sentiment is from Newton's Nook Winter Tails, die cut into a circle with my Nellie's Multiframe Circles.  I added some die-cut Impression Obsession Snowflakes in vellum and strips of bling around the outer edge to form a frame.

I would like to support these fun challenges:
