Penguin Happenings

This is not your typical little  "happy feet" type guy I'm afraid.  He reminds me of the day after Christmas when you're not even sure how you made it through the last two weeks - and wondering what exactly you're suppose to do next.   Or maybe he's just thinking about all the money he spent at Christmas and realizing he's going to pay for it all now!

This cute image is from Rubbernecker Stamps.  Isn't he the absolute cutest penguin ever!  The sentiment is from MFT and the snowflake from Lawn Fawn.

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches where they're celebration their 400th sketch!  I'll also enter it in Rudolph's Day Challenge for August.



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

You have the greatest stamps, Lynn. This card just cracks me up with that expression on his face. Looks like he's already had his holly, jolly! I love the plaid and the white just pops against it.

The penguin is so funny with the crazy eyes. Love your explanation of it being the day after Christmas. The presentation is wonderful.

Such a fun image, and I like all your reasons for his expression on his face! Probably all true!

This card is so darn cute! I am so loving that tartan paper. Reminds me of the days when I wore a tarten skirt for my school uniform!

My mention about not commenting was not directed at people who forget...rather at the trend this past year of drop and go entries, slways from the same people. I only brought it up as I do not want to draw a prize and not be able to give it out due to the rules!

Plus, I love to read my comments as we all do.

Thanks for taking part in the August Rudolph Days Challenge.
