My Left Over Penguin!

TGIF! I am heading out to Geneva, IL to shop and eat with my girlfriends. It has become a yearly tradition and one that I look forward to! As you know, I have been totally addicted to Suzy Plantamura's cute images! When I don't know what to create, I just pull one of these babies out and BAM! I have an instant card! I used Copics and a white gel pen. 


See that cute little penguin?  I had originally stamped him for yesterday's card, but then felt he was too big.  He was sitting on my desk while coloring this card, with his sad puppy dog penguin eyes, just begging to be used.  So I thought to myself, "Self, wouldn't he look cute sitting inside the sand bucket?"  And yes, indeed he does! ;) 









Thank you for stopping by today! I will be back with this weekend with another penguin card. ( I figured why stop, while I'm on a roll?) 
Have a great Friday my friends!!

This Penguin Needs Sunscreen!

This little guy needs to watch out! His belly is getting a bit pink! 
I adore this stamp set from My Favorite Things!  It is called Penguins in Paradise.  He does look like he's living it up, doesn't he? ;)
Everything was colored with copics.  The "sand" portion was done with a floral stencil I had and various shades of yellow, orange, and pink Tim Holtz inks. 
I usually do your "normal" sand but wanted to jazz it up a bit.  I think it worked pretty well! 
I lined up the sentiment using my Mini Misti and then added some seed beads and sequins to finish off the card.   
No sun here today.  Storms rolled in last night and apparently they are here to stay throughout the day.
*sigh* Guess that just means I'll have to craft...... ;)
Have a great day!!
