TCC Feature Friday - Pax the Penguin

Doesn't he have an adorable smile? He looks like he would really like to cheer you up. I think he's one of the cutest images over at The Caracter Cafe's Store. You ought to stop over there as most of the images are $1 for now.
Then you could stop by and see what the rest of the DT came up with this week. These wonderful ladies offer much inspiration for all of us. And the designers Kendra & Kelly are awesome artists. Fink is great as a manager, and so much fun. It's been fun working with them all.

This little guy's name is Pax the penguin. I used a product that is new to me called "Snow Writer" by DecoArt, which I ordered online from Joann's and used it on the raised areas on the ice. The snowflakes are ones I bought at HL a few weeks ago, they have so much glitter on them, I have it all over my table and me. (You didn't know I sparkled, did you? LOL.) The buttons were also purchased from Joann's, and they were called Bag 'O Buttons. I used one of my new around-the-page punches from MS. (I was so excited that I had 60% coupons from A.C. Moore that my husband and I used; that way I could justify getting two at once; he even agreed with me - He's soooo sweet!) The sentiment is from "The Doodle Pantry".

I actually found quite a few challenges to join this week; it wasn't easy without the aid of "Feline Playful", but many are using anything goes, since it's the end of the year and everyone is so busy. Here are the ones I'm entering:

Mark's Finest Papers - mustard, blue and green
Stamp Fairy Challenge - anything
Dancing In Pajamas - sketch

Papertake Weekly - anything
Tuesday Morning Sketches - embellishments
The Crafty Pad - anything

Totally Gorjus - for someone special (a friend who is under the weather)
One Stitch at a Time Challenge - anything
The Pink Elephant Challenge - winter

Gingerloft Challenge - polar animals

Whew, now I can rest my hands. (Of course, it's going to be just as timely when I link to the blogs.) It sure would be nice to win at least one challenge. But, if not, it's been fun. Hope you will leave me a comment.
