For my card, I used this cute trio of penguins.  I paper pieced their little hats and added some Liquid Applique to the 'furry' parts. I dressed them up with a bow tie, a couple of mini buttons and a red and white striped twine bow. 

All of the papers are from Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly line.  They look like they are caroling to me, so I had to include a strip of the sheet music paper.  The sentiment is also from the new set.

Happy hopping and don’t forget to email Wendy when you have completed the rounds!

Thanks for stopping by!
