A Penguin is for life, not just for Christmas...

Good Morning lovely friends, Happy Monday!

It's a very happy one here for several reasons, firstly, we had the most fabulous holiday in Charmouth, Dorset last week and we enjoyed ourselves so much we are going back very soon!

Secondly, it is my day to make a card for wonderful Dies to Die for, and I enjoyed making this one enormously!

Finally, my darlin' friend Squirrel has invited me to join her and 'the acorns' (or is it nuts)! at  
Squirrel's Not So Random Challenge
and we have a new not so random challenge of 
Anything Goes 
starting today for you!  Just follow the link 
HERE
for all the details.
Phew...and breath!

For today's card I have used a wonderful set of stamps and dies from Dies to Die For - 

I have made a circular card and coloured the background with Distress Inks and splattered about acrylic paint.  I have used dies to cut out the sea and sand and made a little scene framed with an MFT Stitched Circle Frame Die.

The little pingu's are coloured with Copics.

...and here we are, a waddle of penguins in paradise!...

  14. Squeeee! These penguins are so fabulously cute and I love how you used them together to create a little beach scene...they look like they are having so much fun! Using a round card base is a fab idea too and you have created a lovely dimension to the design by layering up the elements...just brilliant my friend :-)
