Two for one...

You know, sometimes I just get behind and feel like I'm spinning my wheels - LOL! Such is the case this week!

Anywho, I'm here with my card for Cupcake Inspirations (see photo inspiration below) AND for Crafty Creations - Snowflakes! Two birds (HA - it's a penguin) with one stone...or however that saying should go.
I was inspired by a Christmas card I received a couple of years ago that was black and red-loved the simplicity of the colors; I embossed the red layer with snowflakes adding a beautiful white feather (a gift), some berries and holly leaves - FUN! I created the sentiment which says "just skating by..." on the front and "to say hi!" on the inside.
