Penguin love....


Hi Lovely Blogging Friends...

A quickie from me today..  I have a real thing about penguins at the moment (nothing to do with the John Lewis advert - it predates that!) - and when I saw this little one called (aptly enough) Skating Penguin from CC designs a little while back....  decided I just had to have him!!  Imagine then finding he was free on CC Designs Facebook page..  well I was doing the happy dance!  

But.....  then he caused me trouble!  He is just TOO cute - and I loved colouring him with my copics.....  but what do you put behind a little penguin with ice skates on??  Of course, I would have liked to put some ice for him to skate on..  but, and I think because of my lack of mojo this week, I couldn't come up with the 'right' design!!  Sooooooo  you'll just have to put up with the same old, same old Li'l Inkers Stitched Dies, A Dee's Distinctively Christmas Stacker Tree Die, and a Memory Box Country Landscape Die.  Oooh and some LOTV paper from one of their last year's Christmas pads.  

Of course, some glitter was involved too (!)...  and then I decided the red on his hat needed to be balanced with some red on the card.  Hmmmf... not sure that worked!

Now you'll just have to use your imagination and KNOW that he's heading off to the local lake or river that's iced over to skate on!!  yes??

Big hugs and Happy Weekend to everyone that's taken the time to read my waffling on..  Thank you so much for visiting and any comments you may like to leave..

  10. GORGEOUS card Christine. I have just ordered some stitched square dies as I love my circle ones so much. I love your pingy too. He's adorable. I have a thing for these little tux wearing waddlers!

  11. No, no, no! He is too cute. In fact, he is so cute, he wants to get posted in the Copic UK FB Group. Nuff said. x

  12. Adorable as always Christine! Love all the shimmer and shine! The winter wonderland scene looks gorgeous!

  13. I think the balance of the card is stunning, such a cutie... beautiful work as always, you are a constant inspiration... (even with a failing mojo)


  14. This is gorgeous Christine. I love the little penguin and the scene behind the circle is beautiful. Love the red accents.

    I do my collage pictures in Picassa - a free download. You just group together all the photos you want in the collage and at the top of the pictures there is an icon to create collage. You then have the option of juggling the images, bringing certain ones to top and generally moving them about. There are so many other effects you can use in Picassa.
    Hope this helps.
    Hugs Sharon. x
