Penguins for the General

Sandy sent out a call for penguin cards last month.  Seems one of her contacts loves penguins and requested a box of cards with them featured!  I bet he had no idea what his request would result in.  LOL  I haven't heard the total Sandy sent to him yet, but I'm sure it was overwhelming.

Here are a few I sent in.  Who knew I had so many penguin stamps...and these are just half of them.  I should make up some more for our winter theme boxes for next year.

Sentiment - CTMH - Sweet Talk
Penguin - Inky Antics
DP - Doodle Bug Designs
Lime DP - my stash
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Snowflake brad - stash

This darling penguin stamp was given to me by my BFF, Lanora.  There were no markings on it, so I have no idea who made it and she said she had it for ages.  I'm pretty sure it it no longer available from whoever made it.  I made this card for Sandy especially.  I will probably make up a batch of them for next year because who wouldn't want to have some skate boarding penguins?  That paper was from a 6x6 pad of BoBunny Papers (I think), and the maroon ribbon is CTMH.  The dots are Pearl Pen.

This cute little penguin is a Whipper Snapper Designs stamp.  The CS and DP are from my stash and the tag I punched from some CTMH CS and tied with some waxy flax from CTMH.  They don't make this anymore (the waxy flax) and I am sad.  I love this stuff.

Our next challenge is bunnies, so be watching for lots of those.  

Punches and kid cards...

This week I've been making cards for kids for OWH and mulling over other ideas.  Here's a pic of a few that will get sent to Sandy this next week.  And later I'll post some that I've made over the last month.  It's finally sunny today after 3 or 4 days of fog, so I think we'll go out and about today and I'll finally get off the computer.  :)

These were made using punches and Cuttle Bug dies.  And I got the lovely vibrant colored paper from Craft Warehouse.  Love me some Bazille paper!
