Skating Along

Oh, my goodness!!!  It's November already!  Where has this year gone?  Since it is the first of the month, it's time for another challenge from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  It's Anything Christmas-related goes and you have all month to play along with us.  Our sponsor is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps.
Here is my card using the adorable "Penguin Winter Skate":
 I just purchased the "Slide On Over" dies from Law Fawn, and they are really the reason I chose to use this image (other than it is soooo adorable!).  I wanted to create the action of the penguin skating along in the frosty air.  As you pull the little tab that says "Slide Me", the penguin skates along with his nice, cozy, warm scarf.
 Isn't that so fun!!??  Love what you can do with these dies.  This is the second time I've used them, and it will NOT be the last.
There are less than two months left until Christmas, so it is time to get started on those Christmas cards, if you haven't done so already.  And if you have, keep up the good work and keep playing along with us.  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps: Bugaboo Stamps "Little Penguin Winter Skate" digi; Lawn Fawn "Push Here" sentiment
Dies: Lawn Fawn "Slide On Over"; Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large"; Memory Box snowflake and snowflake border die; Neat and Tangled "Falling Circles Cover Plate" (just won this from their new release!)

Aww...your little penguin is so adorable! The slider makes your card double cute (and fun!). Thanks so much for linking this up to the Cropstop blog! I hope you'll join us again soon. We only have 6 days left in the current challenge and we're aiming for 100 links this month!
