Happy New Year (a little late)! I’m just starting to get back into my craft room and have a quick share for you today. A little while ago, Operation Write Home issued a call for penguin cards when one of their contacts, a Brigadier General, made a special request for his team. They are looking for cards that feature a penguin in some way and are neither holiday nor seasonal in nature. Please have a look at the rules HERE and the “Situation Report” HERE if you are interested in helping out…cards are due by January 15th!
I only have two penguin stamps in my whole collection (really?) and they are both from Lawn Fawn’s “Critters in the Snow” set. Since they appear to be a parent and a baby penguin, I paired them up with a sentiment from one of the new OWH fundraiser sets, “Lil Hoot” (Hero Arts), to make a general card for a soldier to send home to one of his/her kids. It skews a little girly with the heart patterned paper (Colorbok), but I think it would make a younger boy pretty happy too. I’m working on one or two more penguin cards that I will hopefully finish in time…and I will post them when they’re finished!
Oh yeah…and the penguins are colored using Copics…not Spectrum Noir markers…but that’s a post for another time. Thanks for stopping by and I’d love to hear your comments!
