Let's BLOG HOP, shall we.....

If you are a card maker then this hop is for you!! Be prepared to have your socks knocked off!!  
This is the October Blog Hop sponsored by Paper Wings-  an on-line community for all Angels (demonstrators for The Angel Company.) Paper Wings has an gallery that features TAC stamps and products that is open for all to see. {Click HERE}
The theme for this month is .......
Anything but a standard A2 card!!!  This can be a joy fold, z-fold, accordian fold, side-step, waterfall card, and on and on and on, anything but a plain folded in half type card will be acceptable.

Here is my card. I used the Perky Penguins and Reece ribbon,cardstock and Designer Paper collection from TAC. The cute little penguin was colored with Copics. The tan layer was stamped with Versamark ink and then the Holographic embossing powder was added. (I love the glittery shimmer for winter-ish projects. It reminds me of ow the snow looks like diamonds on a sunny winter's day.)

So this is when it becomes "not a standard folded in half A2 card" card. LOL  The brads in the top corners allow the two panels to swing open to reveal the sentiment inside. The triple matted image is attached to only the right panel. Because the front is pretty plain I wanted to add a little extra something inside. Since the design of this card  allows for only a teeny bit of thickness- a little designer paper on a white mat was just the trick. =)
 This design is perfect for mailing as it tends not to be too bumpy.  I know this design will be one I use again and again for various occasions.

Ok, grab your favorite snack, sit back and get your mouse clicking and be prepared to be inspired....OH, and be sure to leave them some love. =)
