hula penguin

Hey out there...how has the summer been for you so far? We have been loving the sleeping in thing! All the kids get up between 7 and 8...I usually roll out of bed around 8ish and it's so great to not have to be anywhere right away! Oh how I love the summer! The kids are catching up on there morning cartoons and LOVING the fact that sugar cereal has made it's comeback...(I am one of those mean moms that won't by sugar cereal during the school year...so it's a real treat at our house...the kids look forward to it every year when school gets out!)
Ok enough of that on to some card deets...
Yesterday was a lazy day but I did manage to sit down after dinner and make a few cards. I took a super quick trip to Archivers yesterday...(I think I was in and out in record time!) I went to get some paper I needed and found this super darling penguin hula girl stamp I could not pass up! Isn't she so cute? I stamped her twice..once in old olive and once in staz-on black. I cut out the black piece for the top of her and adhered that to the green hula skirt. I traced over the feet with my black marker. I added crystal effects to make her skin look wet and give it that penguiny look, I also added stickles to her bikini top. Originally I added the scallop with a popsicle on it...cuz that stamp also came with the penguin. Then when I was putting the card together I realized they didn't HAVE to be used together...so I used this "one of a kind" stamp I had.
Ok...enough babbling from me for now!!

Too cute...what a fun card Tara!!! I also picked that stamp up at Archiver's along with her "brother" penguin. I'm yet to ink them up though.
