Christmas Penguin

Good Morning! I hope you had an enjoyable weekend! I did but it was really busy. Abby had her first soccer game of the spring season and I'm happy to report that I actually took my camera!! I'll be posting those pictures later today or tomorrow. As you know on Monday, I post a Christmas card. This week the challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long was to do a card yourself - no sketches allowed! I think that there are so many sketches out there these days that even if you do something yourself it probably resembles a sketch somewhere, LOL! Here is my card for the challenge.

I like the brighter colors and I just love the thick ribbon! The snowflakes & penguin are both from The Angel Company. I used Prismacolor pencils and OMS to color in the penguin - doesn't he make you smile?

Thanks for looking!!

Ohhhh!! Love this!! You colored him so nicely and I love the colors, using the white as a mat really sets them off!
Awesome job!

He is such a cutie pie!! I love the bright colors!! Very cute!

I think you're right about the sketches!! Every time I do something of my own I worry that someone will think it is their sketch!!!

Hugs, Cathy
