Penguin Love

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!


I have one card today for three challenges.
I wish I had time to do three separate Christmas cards as I'm sure
I would be happy with that growing stash.  But it's been a very busy
week and another coming up.

I had fun watercoloring this sweet penguin.
He was a gift to myself and he's been sitting patiently in my NBUS box
waiting for an outing.  I hope it's considered new enough for
Jingle Belles

The penguin covers Christmas Kickstart

and being a Christmas card I can take this over to Scrappy Mo's
Rudolph Days.



Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

this little guy is so cute, he could do double duty as a valentine penguin :) Great colouring BTW.

That little penguin is adorable, Bonnie. I love the way you colored him too- allowing highlights in his fur. Very well done!! Great Christmas card for you stash. The snowflakes and your Kars embossing folder are the perfect accents for this.

Such an adorable and happy penguin, Bonnie! Your watercolor and the tilted panel bring the penguin to life.
The dry embossed snow in the background and the shiny balloon are a wonderful touch!
