Balloon Penquin

Here is simple little card for Christmas and designed it so it will easily meet the postal requirements and NOT cost extra to mail. I am so annoyed at the postal service, they just announced they will be raising the individual cost to mail a letter to $1.00 and if bought in a pack to 85 cents (a 63 cent  increase per stamp)! Not only that but the permanent ones are no longer permanent,  what a farce!  Plus they will  be discontinuing urban mail service to the door and everyone will have to pick up their mail at the community boxes. Image raising the prices to pay for non delivery,  Crown Corporation at it's finest. Well, I feel better getting that off my chest :O)!!

I have used Doodle Pantry's 'Winter Birthday' from the December 2013 release as my image and made a Christmas card (for next year , hence my rant) out of it. It was a pre-coloured image but I played with some of the colours and added a cloudy sky  and a few little punched snowflakes to give it a Christmas feel! The Merry Christmas sentiment is from'Elizabeth Craft designs'and the embossing folder  is Cuttlebugs 'Snowflakes' .
