CCC(13) - CAROL'S THEME - PENGUINS!

Grrrrrr - I have just been to read my emails and thought it funny, 'cos there would be at least one comment from you, but there was nothing, nada, zilch, zero!!!  I have just been in to check my blog and no Scheduled Post!!!   It seems as if I am lucky with one out of three at the moment!!!!  Sorry to the other CCC girls who wondered where I was - then again better late than not at all!!

Well hello there lovely peeps and fellows blogsters!  Thank you so much for popping over to take a peek at my blog, I really am pleased and chuffed that you have taken the time to visit.  I have scheduled my card for 8.30am, so I am still snoozing (Graham would argue 'snoring' - as if!!!) under the duvet ... lurvely!!!   
Anyway, Carol chose the theme of 'Penguins' for our fortnightly CCC challenge and I must admit I was really looking forward to this 'cos they are gorgeous creatures and a favourite of mine.

I didn't have a penguin stamp to hand so I looked on t'internet and found this image and the North Pole sign on the Colouring Pages site.  They do look as if they are enjoying themselves don't they.  The dotty paper has red, light green and dark green dots on it although it doesn't quite show on here.


I asked the Maestro to take the pic for me but the light today is bloomin' awful, so he did his very best as usual,  all I can see is grey cloud ..... wonderful!!  

Ingredients

7" x 7" White Card Blank - Anna Marie Designs
Penguin image/North Pole sign - Colouring Pages from the t'internet

There we have it, another Christmas card in the box for later this year, nice and flat for posting as well!  I hope you like it and if you have had the time, left me a word or three.  I shall be round to check all the CCC Christmas cards later on - ie when I am fully awake.

Thanks once again for visiting me and for any comments you may have left, I am so grateful to you all.

Big hugs to you and please take care.

  21. You did find such a grand image, and they are having so much fun indeed. Lovely that you also found the North Pole to show these little critters the right direction to aim their cute selves on this sled. Fantastic card, and it made me smile. Terrific red background with the snowflakes, and of course I love the sentiment die too. TFS & Hugs
