Digi Doodle Shop Penguins

Hope everyone is having a Happy New Year so far! As I type this I have on an extra pair of socks, all wrapped up in my favorite quilt with the dog snuggled up next to me, sipping a fresh hot cup of coffee!  I am doing what I can to stay warm. While I'm freezing my tushy off look at these cute guys having a ball in that wicked white stuff!

This is my card for our Challenge to you this week at Digi Doodle Shop's Best which is "Buttons". Which to me is an almost "anything goes" challenge because how easy is it to add a button to almost any card? I did find out how simple it is to nip off those shanks on the backside. I used one of my jewelry making cutters but I've seen Tim Holtz do it with his Tonic scissors!!
Here's a close up:

As a Copic enthusiast I just love the variety of realistic images that Digi Doodle Shop offers!!
I created the "Just Chillin" on my computer and by accident found out they were the perfect size to cut out with my EK success punch. I love happy accidents ; )
Ok, enough of the chatter and it's time to get another cup of coffee (the dog is not going to be happy that I am disturbing his sleep )!
To join our challenges you don’t have to use a Digi Doodle Shop image, but if you do use one, your entry will count twice. You are also allowed to enter our challenge as many times as you like, as long as you enter with a new card/craft.
