Merry Christmas + A Winner!

I'm just popping in quickly to say Merry Christmas to you all! It's been supremely chaotic in my house and that's all I'll say for now. LOL I wanted to share a card I made a couple of days ago for my brother-in-law and his eight-year-old son. It turns out my nephew also loves penguins, plus he skis! I hadn't inked up any of the stamps from Pain and Pride or Take Your Time and I was happy to have a reason to. In fact, there couldn't be a more perfect stamp for him except if it's sports-related but this one is much more festive. ;)

Also, I'm here to announce the winner of my holiday giveaway from THIS post. Random.org has chosen the following winner:

Congratulations, Caroline! Please email me with your mailing address by 11:59pm on December 31, 2011 and I will ship out your stamps. If I do not hear from you by New Year's Day, I will draw another winner.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you are all enjoying the wonder of the season and the hustle and bustle of festivities with family and friends.

That card is hilarious! If the penguin wore roller skates instead, I'd have a whole bunch of folks to recreate it for :)

Hope your Christmas was as merry as it possibly could be!!
