Winter's in the Air Blog Hop

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but these projects are so delightful!

Welcome to the 'Winter's in the Air' blog hop!
We have all made projects to warm your heart, and potentially decorate your home, during these snowy months.  I received the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge from my friend, Vicki, as part of a Secret Santa gift, so I decided to break it out and use it for my card.
I just LOVE this little penguin!  I added Candy Cane Stickles to his scarf, and I outlined the igloo in Star Dust Stickles.  I coated the word "chillin'" with a glue pen and then covered it with a silver Martha Stewart glitter.  The background sky was done with chalks.

If you comment on everyone's post you will be entered to win this from Melanie.  It includes paper, stickers, metal embellies, adhesive, mists, stencils, a journal, and more!  Be sure to check back on Tuesday, January 22, to see who won.
I've got blog candy, too!  In honor of the penguin on my card, I'll be giving away the morepenguins2love stamp set from The {Stamps} of Life.  All you need to do to be entered to win my blog candy is leave a comment below and become a follower of my blog.  If you're already a follower, be sure to let me know.  Thanks for stopping by!

Here's the complete hop lineup, in case you get lost:
