Friendly little penguins

I have missed the previous couple of challenges at the Hambo Hoedown for various reasons, so I did not get the freebie, but we can use any Hambo digi or rubber stamp in order to join the Hoedown. The current challenge is also to use something NEW in our card:

Luckily, I had some brand new goodies to use for this card! This is the first time I've used these new rubber stamps which I purchased from Hambo Stamps recently (Hot Chocolate #4720 and Warm Winter Wishes #4710). It's such a cute stamp and the sentiments are great for general winter and friendship cards for OWH.
We also have a monthly challenge at OWH Stars & Stamps blog sponsored by Our Daily Bread Designs. The challenge is to use 3 designer papers in our card. I used three DPs from a new 6x6 double-sided pad from My Mind's Eye called "So Sophie - Graceful", so I will also post my card there.
I paper-pieced the mug and colored the rest of the image with Copics. The paper edges are inked with Ranger's Dusty Concord Distress Ink.
Thanks for stopping by. It's so true, isn't it? Friends do make everything better!

Cute card! I saw on the taped version of OWHtv that you won a set of stamps - congratulations! Hey, did you know that the ODBD Challenge this month on the Stars & Stamps blog is to use 3 patterned papers? You need to link up this card!!

Suck a cute image and you did it a lot of justice. The sentiment is so very true and I love the ribbon/button. Have a great day.

Too cute Sherry! I love the paper piecing that you do so well. I can never manage to find an image (or the patience, lol) to make it work. Great job combining papers too. These work perfectly together.

What a cute card! I like how you paper pieced the mug. The ribbon and button help pull it all together.
