The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes

Yes, it is that time again, Anything Goes at  The House That Stamps Built,
and how do I know that?  I got a message from Wendy, the owner of
Repeat Impressions, asking where my card was.  I set a record
making this card.  Luckily I had made a similar card the night
before so I was able to quickly CASE myself.
Wendy has designed several cute winter penguins, I used
8808-E, Knit Cap Penguin and 9106-G, Sending Smiles.
I created the snow with a Taylored Expressions
Snowfall embossing folder.  Distressing with Memento
Summer Sky and coloring with Copics. 
I kept my card simple without any glitter as I am starting on Cards
for Little Hearts,  a winter card drive for children in two heart hospitals,
who have congenital heart disease run yearly by
Christina Hor.  It runs October 1 to November 1 if
you would like to join in, every card helps.
