Getting a Head Start in July!

Morning all...I hope you are all having a good weekend so here been lovely and sunny but not too hot so that you don't want to do anything!

I was looking around for some Christmas challenges to enter so that I could use this adorable little penguin image from the Digi Stamp Boutique...I settled on making this card for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge... and their theme is 'Get a Head Start'...the perfect opportunity to make a start on my Crimbo cards and here is the first of many! This lil penguin is perfect if you need to whip up some quick cards for Christmas...he doesn't take long to colour and with a few stickles aded for effect he is good to go!
