LOTV Christmas Release II

Hello dear blog friends, are you ready for some more Lili of the Valley sweetness?! There's a lot of new things happening so before I get onto my project for today, let me share some exciting news with you all! 
First let me mention there is a little contest going on the Inspire blog, create 'Anything but a Card' and enter it for a chance to win some LOTV gift certificates. I'm sure we would all love to win some cash to spend at LOTV, especially because there is a new release coming on 8/22/2012 and you're going to need all the help you can get! :-D

Second bit of news, and this I'm very excited about, LOTV will be releasing several 8" x 8" paper pads featuring designs from Nitwit Collections on the 15th! So if for some reason you can't print your  own papers, just love the pre-printed kind, or are like me and hoard patterned papers like a squirrel getting ready for winter, lol- this will make you very happy! 
There will be 6 paper pads coming out, 3 Christmas and 3 everyday patterns. More info on the Inspire blog. Another reason you will need some of that LOTV cash, so enter your project to win! I am so looking forward to getting these paper in my hot little hands, I'll blog about them as soon as I get some!

OK, finally, onto today's sneak peek:

Time for Christmas animals! Yes, this second release features all the adorable animals LOTV is famous for. I chose to use this adorable penguin 'Snow Cute' for my card today.

I made a little window card using a Spellbinders label that I stamped and embossed in pink embossing powder onto kraft cardstock. LOVE this color combo! I added lots of sparkly, crystal snowflakes to give it that icy feel, and added a soft, warm and fuzzy strip of wool felt to keep little penguin warm!

The inside of the card has one of the new grungy sentiments also being released on the 22nd. A whole sheet full of every possible Christmas saying you could ever need. Here's a closer look at the penguin, colored simply with Copics.

Hope you like what you see, what do you think of the new paper pads, are you excited to see them? 
Don't forget to enter the contest, it ends this Thursday, 8/16, so  you have plenty of time to make something.

Thanks for visiting!
