P..P...Pick up a penguin

Another Christmas card from me today and I make no apology because it is such a fabulous stamp and I would like it noted that I do not endorse penguin throwing in any way, shape or form!!


The fabulous Archie was coloured to compliment the Frosty Friends papers, matted on some teal card and adorned with some ribbon and a pearl slider...simples. Ooh and the sketch was borrowed from the most generous Jules...again!!

A challenge or two

Winter Wonderland - P P Pick up a penguin
Crafty Gals #39 - Things with wings
Crafty Ribbons #128 - Christmas but no red or green
Crafting Musketeers #30 - Christmas with a ribbon

I should be in the saddle but it's a pea souper out there (thick fog for those of you not in the UK!!) so Surprise gets a reprieve this morning, which I am sure she won't mind!! I haven't shared any photographs for a while so this is what the mornings were like at the beginning of the week. 


Have a lovely Sunday whatever you are doing xx

Sarah, firstly, what a beautiful photo...mornings are pretty foggy here at the moment too - I do love autumn...
Your card is absolutely gorgeous. I love your colouring (I have never coloured a penguin, I am always worried about colouring black and white with realism)! Your card design is beautiful with the modern colours you have used...in all just a wonderful Christmas card.

Good morning Sarah - still playing catch up with all my lovely crafty friends since the wedding last week and having my little visitor to stay whilst Mum & Dad are on Honeymoon.
You have some gorgeous makes since my last visit and this is no exception.
Adorable image and fabulous DP's - so perfectly matched.
It's a pea-souper morning here too today - good reason to stay inside and catch up and then a little playtime in my little crafty haven - I have missed it so much lol!!!
Have a fabulous day.

Wow, Sarah, what a beautiful photo! Pea soup certainly makes for a beautiful sunrise. Now your card, it's so cute and the papers couldn't be more perfect! As usual, your coloring is fab and the image is darling!

Good morning Sarah.....gorgeous photo, what a glorious view!

Seriously cute card too, I've never thrown a penguin but have been known to get the wrapper off one and dunk it in a cuppa, lol

brenda said...

Always love to see a penguin - or - two Sarah, super seasonal card.

No fog here as yet, the odd misty morning but very damp and dewy.

Hope you have a good Sunday.

I need that stamp! What a belter!!! So love your card Sarah and a lovely photo too. We had bad fog mid week but it's not been bad since, poor Surprise, or will she be better pleased doing her own thing? Jx

Very cute indeed. I did indeed pick up a penguin from LOTV at The Port Sunlight stamp fair yesterday!
The weather was awful yesterday as the fog hung around as low cloud most of the day so it was good to be inside!
Al has been bringing in the logs he cut as the forecast is dire tomorrow but this morning the sun is shining. Have a lovely Sunday too. :)

What a fabulous fun card Sarah and I'm glad you would always be kind to penguins! I love how you coordinate the colours for your cards and teal is one of my favourites so this is a definite winner in my book. Hope the fog clears for tomorrow so you can enjoy your ride.
