{Avocado Arts} Warm and Cozy Holiday Season

This is my second post of the day.
If you're looking for my Lil' Inker Designs November Release Blog Hop {Day 4} post, please scroll down or click HERE.


Today, the entire Avocado Arts Pit Crew has loads of inspiration to share with you! We've all made cards featuring the November release, Very Merry Season, with sneak peeks of the upcoming December release, Smitten With You.


To create this wintery scene, I used background paper from Basic Grey's Aspen Frost paper pad and die cut trees from Very Merry Season. The stitched border, aka penguin tracks in the snow, is from Sew Nice. My sneak peeks from Smitten With You are the penguin and his accessories. I filled the penguin's belly and decorated the trees with white gold microbeads. I dressed him in a red hat and mittens just like my son's. Eeek! I'm totally loving this penguin and you will, too. Smitten With You is so perfect for the winter season.


Please visit these amazing blogs for more inspiration and sneak peeks:

I love that the "sneak" preview shows your critter sneaking around the tree. Cute card.

You are too funny--just noticed the other mitten... Was it frustrating or easy, using those micro-beads?
