penguin hugs (Inspired By, Retro, TAWS, SSS)

Playing reader catchup I was.  Overwhelmed by all the challenges I missed I am.  Here's a four-fer for you.
Hope you like Mr. Penguin, he became my stamp of choice yesterday...

Stamped Mr. P on some Basic Grey Alpen Frost PP that I finally posess!  I saw it so often on holiday cards that when I saw it on sale I bought a few sheets.  Shot to hell my goal of reducing my PP stash, but oh well.

Die cut a heat embossed mat and layered Mr. P with some yummy textures.  Chose the sentiment cuz it looks like he wants to give ya a hug, doesn't it?

My inspiration photos:
Inspired By #56

And sketch #45 at Retro Sketches:

Also joining Simon Says Stamp - New Something cuz my Alpen Frost is brand spanking new!.  Thanks for looking.  More penguins to come.

Supplies for hugs:
Paper: cardbase Papermania
Stamps: BG CHF, TAWS
Ink : Versamark, Hero Arts
Tools: die PTI, scissors
Other:  embossing powder, burlap, yarn
