Can you believe that I was in Vegas for an entire week and didn't take a single picture? Well, it's true. We were there on business, but I did manage to squeeze in a stop at the Bellagio spa. Mmmmmm. The Las Vegas hotels have the most amazing spas and I try to go to at least one each year while we're there. What a treat!
I also took a few stamping supplies with me and managed to put together two cards, this being one of them. I actually stamped these three Hambo penguins at home and just took the stamped image with me. Aren't they so darling? I colored with markers and a water brush on watercolor paper. The sentiment is by A Muse, and then I added the swirls on each side. Where did the swirls come from? I was rather proud of this (ya know, limited supplies and all): I inked only these swirls on the frame stamp from Papertrey Ink's new set, Piece of Cake. Don't they make darling little accents?

Have you been checking out the Sneak Peaks over at the Verve Visual blog? There'll be a new project every day until November 10, because on that day TWO new stamp sets will be available. I'll be chiming in with a card on Friday, so make sure you stop by.
