Penguin Party





I still haven't decided if these are penguins or black and white owls! They're SUPPOSE to be penguins though so that's what we're going with here. I saw a card on Michelle's Stamping Blog that was similar to this and since I've had that owl punch from SU for several weeks and hadn't used it I thought maybe now was the time. I still haven't punched out any owls yet!



This is another very clean and simple card. I really didn't have all the punches required for this but used the owl punch and the Itty Bitty Shapes punch. The rest of it was done by just cutting up some of the scraps (as if you couldn't tell)! The sentiment is from Christmas Scripts (CTMH).



This will be for the Creative Inspirations Paint challenge - spreading your wings. And yes, penguins DO have wings....they just use them for swimming instead of flying. I'm also entering this in the Just Us Girls challenge - to use the colors red, white, black, and yellow.



We have a slew of company coming in tomorrow for Thanksgiving and some of them won't be leaving until Saturday!!! Yikes! SOOOOO, I'm going to be on a short break from blogging for awhile. I will try to pop in on your blog if possible - and if not, I'll catch up with you after Saturday. Thanks to everyone for all your wonderful comments. They mean so very much to me and each and every one of them is appreciated! Hope you and your friends and family have a nice Thanksgiving.



Thanks for stopping by..........

These totally look like penguins. In fact I didn't even realize they were the owl punch until I read your description. Very clever and creative. I think your non-punched pieces look just fine. Even though I have 215+ punches, I still don't always have the one I need to create punch art. That's what improvisation is all about.
