Happy Penguin Day!!!!!

It's penguin day! Penguin day is always the first Thursday of the month of July when the 4th falls on a Friday! So in honor of this special day...I made some fun cards for all you penguins out there!!!!

Our first card represents the water fun penguins enjoy! Tabitha penguin is sporting the latest style of inflatable swimwear; a pumpkin pie orange and white dotted tube which nicely accents her black and white body. She's stamped in black stazon and stands amidst a sponged background of green and blue. She's layered on wasabi & white cs. The sun is summer sun CBd using a metal rim tag as a "folder" and circle punched. Her yummy accent ribbon is from Am.Craft, the flower from blog candy rec'd with a matching grn brad. The seashell paper was a scrap.

Our second card represents the more serious side of penguins. Penguins playing golf, it's rarely photographed, but here we see Thomas styling a matching shorts & hat combo. A white cashmere sweatervest and an aqua short sleeve shirt. He also was stamped in black stazon and his golf club with watercolored using a paint brush and "lid" ink from the classic black pad. The golf ball has a drop of crystal effects and his cleated golf shoes were given a thick stripe of black. The matching bg paper (k&co) was hole punched to allow the navy card base to show through and antique brass brads were inserted. The quote from Henry Longhurst.

So, Happy Penguin day everyone!!! Blessings, Maria

PS. ok, you know I was kidding, right? There is no such thing as penguin day and these guys didn't really pose for me! They are simply images from Impress Rubber Stamps! You can download them here at their site and participate in a contest too! No penguins were hurt during the ramblings of this blog.

PSS. Did you know penguins only live in the Southern Hemisphere! Excluding controlled environments like zoos and golf courses!
