Polka Dots and Penguins!

Hello Crafty Friends!  I really stretched my creative wings this week!  I found FOUR FIVE, count 'em FIVE challenges that I could enter! 

I must first give a little love to Waddles at Your Next Stamp!  He is just so darned cute!!!
I would personally love to receive any design that featured Waddles!  He just makes me smile!


And, I absolutely adore his igloo cake! 

I had a longer journey to get to this particular card.  I knew I wanted to use Waddles.  Then I found the most recent sketch challenge at The Challenge.  The theme this week is polka dots.  I perused my papers until I found this fun pattern.  It just so happened to include the colors for the color challenge at YNS.  I am not sure I am entirely in love with my color choices for the banner, but I think he came out cute none-the-less.

I had to scour the internet for a sketch that I wanted to follow with this particular stamp.  I found one at Deconstructing Jen.  The circles went perfectly with the way the banner fell.

It tickles me that I am able to enter so many challenges this week!
