Holiday Card 3 for the children's charity

I make a lot of cards every Christmas for the Cards For Hospitalized Kids Charity.  I need to start now since it takes several weeks to fill the flat rate package.  I dug out all my Christmas supplies yesterday and found a plastic bag filled with images, papers and saying labels that were left over from prior years projects.  I plan to use up as many of those as I can before I dig into new supplies.

Have A Cool Yule

Another card for the children's charity made with a cute little penguin image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps that I have had in my stash for a long time.  I colored the image in Photoshop Elements using the color dropper tool to match the colors on the color challenge pic.  Created the background papers using overlays from Pixel Scrappers and added a pretty lace border from The Digi Rainbow.  Since the hospitals don't allow most embellishments on the kid's cards, I kept this simple and just added some twine tied in a bow.
