Chilly Willy Comes to Play

Greetings. Welcome to the Guild Hall. The unseasonably warm temperatures have abated and a winter storm is once again raging outside the Guild Hall walls. It is fortunate I had the generator for the stables repaired before the weather turned. I bundled up in my furs and ventured outdoors to perform the mundane task of shoveling a path from the lane to the Guild Hall doors. I was almost done when I noticed a large bird waddling up to the Guild Hall. He was black and white and wearing a little red bow. Curious, I set aside my shovel and slowly approached the creature. He cocked his head, an unspoken question on his face. I was about to tell him I didn’t understand when suddenly the Lady Commander of Copics burst forth from the Guild Hall and flew past me. “Yaaaaaaaa! Chilly Willy’s here to play! Let’s go!” she exclaimed grabbing the bird by his flipper and pulling him towards to large snow drifts. I should have known...

I started this card by cutting the penguin from the Simply Charmed cartridge. I gave him some bling for his bow and added a rhinestone. The sentiment I cut from the Winter Frolic cartridge and embossed it with my Cuttlebug, earning me +130 texture exp points. I added some silver ribbon on the side to finish the front off, adhering everything onto the snowflake paper.

On the inside I stamped the little penguin by Imaginisce and quickly coloured him. The sentiment came from the Lawn Fawn “Cozy Christmas” set.

This card will waddle into the following chilly challenges:

The Lady Commander and Chilly Willy played outside in the snow for a couple hours before coming inside for some hot chocolatey beverages. I think she’s invited him for supper too. I supposed I’ll have the house gnomes prepare some...raw fish for him *blech*.
