Whipper Snapper and Cosmo Cricket

Laura and Michelle came over for a stamping day, and we had so much fun. it took us a while to figure out a time that we could all get together.
recently, i did an image swap on scs. these penguins are from Whipper Snapper, called S is for Sledding. i think they are adorable, but kinda hard to tell that they are penguins. i had fun coloring them tho, last time Mom and i got together, we had fun too, and i spent the whole time coloring a bunch of different images.
i also won 3 pads of Cosmo Cricket paper on Moxie Fab blog. i love the paper so much, i don't want to use any of it(Early Bird). but i love the red snowflake paper(Jolly by Golly), and had to use it with the penguins.
i also used Nestabilities Tag Trio to cut out the "warm hugs" and then left it on while i used my new Tim Holtz blender tool. i love the way it has the white trim on it.
at serendipity, kim had these great clear rings, so i used one stipe out of the cosmo cricket early bird paper for my ring. and i got the JustRite alpha set and put a M on a leaf sheet from the same paper for michelle. it was so much fun, i want to make some more rings, one of every color. inks: Memento rich cocoa, Koh-i-noor pencils, blending medium
paper: PTI white, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird & Jolly by Golly
accessories: snowflake brads, loose snowflakes, clear rings, nestabilities curved rectangle and tag trio, Tim Holtz blender, glitter pen on snowflakes, crystal effects on sealing paper on rings.

Oddest, Weirdest Thing i have seen with my own eyes

these 2 leopard slugs were hanging on our screen this morning, by a long thick thread of mucus. is that gross? i thought maybe one was giving birth, but once i did some research, discovered they were mating.
i took this little video with our camera, it is almost 3 minutes.
documentary film link is a 4 min video, that explains what is happening.
