Well, here's my creations using Angela's ADORABLE image!  It's PJ Penguin and a bag of ice. 

So, I guess the first thing I think of when I think of a bag of ice is that it's used for drinks.  Then I thought about putting drinks on coasters and decided this new image would look great as part of a set of coasters!  So, I colored PJ with Copics and Atyou spica pens, cut him out using nesties and then lamenated him to a piece of My Minds Eye DP also cut out using nesties.  Then I glued it all on the coaster.  For the other coasters, see post below (if you haven't already).  I think the images make a SUPER nice coaster set!!









Ok, so I also knew I wanted to make a card for this month's release and the one thing I never remember when we have parties is ice!  So here, PJ has his bag of ice and is wondering where the party is!  For this card, I used We R Memory Keepers DP and SU Kiwi Kiss CS.  I cut the cardstock in half at the 4.24 line, but did not trim the length, so it was 11".  I scored at 6 1/2
and 1 1/2 lines.  DP is cut 4 x 4 1/2 for front and 1.25 x 4 for top.  Printed sentiments from computer then cut front sentiment out using nesties tags and secured with American Crafts brads.  There are 4 pieces of velcro underneath so card will stay closed.  PJ is colored with Copics and Atyou Spicas plus Stamendous fun flock used on his tummy below ice bag.  Offray satin ribbon tied around card base and PJ mounted on top using SU dimensionals.
For interior of the card, I cut out more DP, this time using scallop rectangle nesties for sentiment that was printed from computer and SU top note die cut for background.  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and don't forget to stop by all the others and post your comments.  Then stop by the main Sew Many Cards site so you can purchase your new images!!  I hope you love them as much as I do!!:)
