Christmas Card Using Conie Fong Snowy The Penguin - Let It Snow

Hello friends!   How is everyone now that the Holidays are over?  It was a hectic time for us; but it was nice and relaxing on New Years Day for me.  I took a much needed 3 hr. nap.  LOL!

It is time to get started on Christmas cards for 2019, right?  I didn't really have enough homemade cards this year; so I think I need to start earlier.  I created this sweet card the end of the year; but didn't get it finished until yesterday.  I am using Conie Fong "Snowy The Penguin - Let It Snow" which should hopefully be added to her Etsy shop soon.  It is so adorable.
