Monday, Monday....

Boy, that weekend went by fast! ;-) I did't accomplish much. Saturday we tried to find the farm but wasn't successful - so instead we just went into town and ran some errands. Yesterday I did make homemade bread and chicken n' noodles. Took some of that over to my neighbor whose husband passed away. Her kids left this weekend so she's alone...figured she may not feel like cooking for one. I managed a few cards this weekend. Seemed like each was a struggle to come up with something I even somewhat liked. My stamping MoJo has got up and gone bye-bye. It'll come back always does.

Anyways, in the spirit of is one of the cards I made. It was made using this weeks sketch challenge on SCS. The red strip is actually on the inside of the card and the front of the card has about an inch cut away. The image overhangs the cut away part. The penguin image is one of my new ones from Gina K Designs. I wanted to color him with my black prismacolor pencil...but that pencil must have gotten up and walked off on it's own. So I had to use markers on him for coloring. The greeting is from CTMH.

Here is a close up of the image itself...isn't he a cute penguin? Did I mention my penguin fetish???? Maybe it's because I waddle like a penguin myself some days. Or maybe it's just the black/white color combo (hey, that makes them REALLY easy to color!) I'm not sure if you can see it but I used stickles (glitter glue) on his hat and scarf.

And to continue my penguin passion affair...I just ordered 3 more of the Memory Box penguin stamps. I found a company that was going out of business. All stamps 40% off. I wish they had more selection (I imagine they originally had more but it was first come, first served.) I got the hawaiian penguin, one holding a bouquet of flowers, and one in his swim trunks. The other one they had was a surfing penguin...but it didn't "float" my boat. :-)

Gotta get ready for work. Have a great day all!

I love your penguin card! The black and red with just a touch of blue, looks so nice! I just got a couple of the Memory Box penguins myself, but haven't used them yet.
