The Crafter's Cafe challenge #223 ~ Animal and/or ATC

Sweet Sketch Wednesday

 The current challenge at the Crafter's Cafe is to use an animal theme, and/or create an ATC.  With our temperatures in Phoenix area peaking around 110 this week, I thought maybe this cute p\Penguin on Ice from Eureka ( a sponsor) might cool us off.  (It is available as a digi or a rubber stamp.)  Not sure it is working!!!  I added some sparkle to the ice. and used am embossed background.  Black aBirthday:nd white cards are a favorite of mine.  This may go to our sister-in-law.  Several years ago we took a cruise with hubby's brother and his wife.  We sailed among the icebergs around Antarctica, and took some sightseeing trips in South America that included penguin colonies.  This will be a reminder of this fun trip.
Please join these challenges!
 This fortnight we are linking up with Double Trouble

Though my card will be sent to an adult, it would also be suitable for a child.  There are certainly plnty of penguins in zoos!

DT card for Challenge #222 ~ Out of this World and/or Patchwork

For the current challenge at the Crafter's Cafe you  have a choice of "Out of this World"  or "Patchwork" - or you can combine them, as I have here.  I figure this Bootastical image from Creative Bug on the Loose is pretty much out of this world.  I used up some bits and pieces of a Halloween paper stack for the Patchwork background. For separation, I tore some of the edges, and added sticker strips for others.  A bit of black ribbon and a Basic Grey acrylic sticker complete the Halloween card.
