Pinecones bring back such fond memories to me.  They remind me so much of my grandparents cabin that we used to spend so much time in the summers when I was young.  Another fun memory for me is when we would walk my oldest son to the bus stop when he was in kindergarten, my middle son always picked up "piecones" and insisted I hold onto them for him and put them in my pocket.  That whole school year I didn't have many pockets that didn't have sap!  I couldn't resist making a monochromatic card with the image!!  :)



I thought it would be fun to make a quick card  with some of the fun images from the new free with 3 Holiday Tags set.  These little penguins are my favorites and I just love the sentiment, perfect for the season!!  The card was too boring without something in the background so I randomly stamped the snowflake and then heat embossed with very sparkly embossing powder!!!


Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
