Heeeeere's "Duke"!

Happy Wednesday Stampers!

As promised I've got a new Penguin Pal to share with you today.  Penelope definitely needed a buddy to "chill out"'s DUKE!

These little cuties are really easy to make.  I'm afraid I just might be addicted to making them almost as much as I am the puppies!  It just takes a couple of punches and some card stock and....VOILA!  Instant smiles!
Duke is on this Z-Fold Card and he just makes it "pop".  (FYI....I named this one.  My daughter is a senior at JMU and their colors are purple and gold...they are the JMU DUKES)   :-)

Here's a peek at the card opened up a bit....

I added a "pop" of purple to the inside panel to sort of tie it all together.  I'm sure there are more to come judging by the parts and pieces I have laying here on my desk.  Stay tuned!

I'm down in my stamp room working tonight on a few goodies for our Team Gathering on Saturday.  I'm supposed to present a few ideas and I have to admit I'm a little nervous.  I don't want to disappoint all those awesome stampers!  I'll let you know what I come up with.

Blessings to you and yours,
