Crafty Creations Challenges - No Flowers? No problem!

Yep, no flowers. Totally not a problem while I'm in the middle of my Christmas card spree! Lindsey has been cracking me up with her disgruntled penguin cards, and so when I found this sentiment & saw this penguin, I knew exactly what I had to do.
Supplies: Penguin sticker from MAMBI;
sentiment from PTI;
Versamark & white EP;
paper from Bo Bunny "Mistletoe;"
Paper Smooches twine;
bell from stash;
lights from Dress it Up

This is a self-portrait of me after decorating. 
I am a bit of a klutz (Mom, Sarah, stop laughing.) I have been known to climb on kids' furniture to string lights....or use it as a launching pad while I fall over backwards trying to hang lights. Falling up stairs, NO WORD OF A LIE falling off the sidewalk and tearing a ligament...I feel for this little penguin. I have been where he is, and just lucky enough that no one took a photo.

SO, if you want to join in with the No Flowers challenge over at Crafty Creations Challenges, you have until tonight. Hurry up!

xoxo,
Jessi

Hey! You sound just like my Mom...she's suffered many of the same motion-related injuries. Nearly killed herself falling UPstairs, hyperextended her knee (her foot came towards her face) falling on a concrete step, the woman needs a team of construction sign people following (slippery when wet, falling ice, moose crossing...you name it, she needs it) her everywhere she goes...she's THAT dangerous to herself. But, I love this card. he's a cutie all tangled up in his lights! love the accents most. perfect touch :)

Oh I'm a total klutz...and I'm lazy so if I can't reach something I'll do anything to NOT have to get the ladder out....

Such a fun card...love all the holidays lights and that lil guy is too cute.

You're having a busy day today!

Ok, as far as stringing lights on the tree-- 2 words: prelit tree! Other places --- make that a new chore for your boys, especially once they hit that growth spurt! LOL This is a really cute card. So colorful and fun.

You crack me up!!!!!! Duh you already knew that!

Where or where did you get those adorable christmas bulb embellishments! So Ca-UTE!

Your little penguin looks like me and therefore I will only buy things that lights already on them. :-)

I think you'd look good wrapped in Christmas lights. And I bet it would bring a crowd to your Midnight Madness table! :D
