Action Wobble Penguin

Posted on

It was so nice to have the day off yesterday. And for once in about 2 weeks it didn’t rain at all during the day. We lazed around the house yesterday and took a dip in the pool and it was blissful! Hopefully you enjoyed your Independence Day as well.

I got a chance to play around in my craft room this morning and I put together a card for the CAS-ual Fridays Material Girl Challenge and the same card is perfect for the Action Wobble Christmas in July, Challenge.

Penguin Christmas Card

My daughter Sam and I had purchased some fabric at Christmas time last year to make pajama pants. We partially made one pair of  pants, one size too small and then gave up. LOL I am not much of a sewer. So needless to say I have a bunch of flannel penguin material left over.

I carefully cut out one of the adorable penguins and mounted her to some cardboard with Elmer’s Glue. Then I added an Action Wobble spring to the back of  cardboard so that she can jiggle her little penguin booty on the card. The sentiment is a mash up from CASual Fridays: Rad, Mama Elephants: Flashy Letters and Hero Arts: Christmas Sentiments.

Here is a picture of the penguin in action.

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!

  4. Oh my goodness! That is so clever how you used the penguin from yardage to make an embellishment. And the fact that it wobbles? Awesome!! Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays!
