Freebie Friday at Bugaboo!!

Did you get up early and go Christmas shopping?  Me? NO WAY!!!  I stayed nestled in my bed - it's gettin' COLD here in Michigan.
Since our family celebrates Turkey Day the Saturday after the REAL Thanksgiving, today I'll be headed to the market to pick up all my veggies and begin working on the 'make-ahead' items for tomorrow.

HOWEVER, I did get to play a bit with some of the new Penguins Jodie has created for today!!  Jodie whipped up an adorable set - who said Penguins are just for Christmas?!  
Well, these little penguins are celebratin' a birthday and ready to P-A-R-T-Y!! =)
Image - Bugaboo Stamps - Birthday Penguins Collection
Papers - Kraft, Basic Grey & Bazzill
Coloring - Copics C9 C7 C5 R81 R35 R37 B95 B91 YG07 YG17 Y13 Y15 YR04 YR07 
Tools - Heat Gun to dry colored felt, Sizzix Scallop Die, Cuttlebug and Nesties
Extra STUFF - Custom Ribbon, Doodling, Felt Flower, Bling, Custom Bling, Dimensionals, Fabric Glue, Copic Refill in R81 to color Felt, Stazon Jet Black Ink and Miscellaneous HB Sentiment

This is the first time I tried doing a felt flower like this - by coloring it with a Copic Refill.  I used my heat gun to dry the flower, which heated the felt a little bit and caused it to stiffen a bit (I'm very pleased with how this turned out).
