Cutting Cafe/December Delights

Oh how I love Cutting Cafe. You can see the shop right here. Regina's shop has endless choices for all themes and occasions. Our inspiration post at Cutting Cafe blog this week is such a fun group of sets to design with.
We had a choice of December themed images and printables. I selected two: I fussy cut the darling penguin and his cute little red hat. The hat has 3 red jewels added because of course any design conscious penguin wants a wee bit of bling. You can view the Penguin set right here. For my second choice, I printed the 3 calendars from December Daily Numbers Sets.
The top most calendar has been set on an embossed Nestie cut...I've embossed just about everything .... I added a wee star (Don Juan, page 28) ..the center of this sweet star has a gold jewel. I punched a circle, and then a smaller circle so I could highlight the Christmas date of 25.

Regina will post the inspirational projects on Wednesday so be sure to visit the site right here and you will delight in the designs offered. Thanks for your visit.... we are getting nearer to the day of Christmas celebration and I hope that each of you have a safe and wonderful holiday.

Isn't this just adorable, Miss Carole. I love the signature embossing, but that penguin just takes the cake. I knew when we got that file this little guy was going to be fun to work with. I sure hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving visiting with your son and family. Make the most of those special moments.
