Penguins On Parade

Hello.  Welcome.  I am honoured to have been asked by the lovely Jo to elf for her first Christmas Kickstart Challenge of 2020.

OK, we are a day early, but lets not miss a beat!!  I am so glad Jo has decided to run another year of CKC.  It really helped me with my Christmas card stash.  Due to logistics, time management, and in the interests of having a little time for the finer things in life, CKC will be going monthly until July, at which point we will realise that Christmas is approaching on rapid reindeer feet, and then it will revert back to a fortnightly challenge.  So you have a month to kick your xmas mojo back into gear and show us your Penguin Parade cards.  Here's mine....... 

This cute little fellow is from a Norwegian company called Ocean Heart Hobby.  The postage stamp and stars dies are both from Gummiapan.  Blue patterned card from Kort og Godt.  I edged the postage stamp die cut and coloured the stars frame with Indigo Blue Promarker.  Penguin is coloured with distress markers.  The sentiment is also from the Penguin set and says A Winter Hello.  

Don't forget to grab a penguin, make a card and join the fun at the Christmas Kickstart challenge and make a start on your 2020 Chrimbo cards.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

Your little penguin is adorable, and I love that he is still the star of the show, while being surrounded by your stars!

Hurray, the comment box has appeared! Love this penguin and the gorgeous stars behind him/her! That background is beautiful - is it a stamp or some lovely paper? Thanks for being my elf again, your help and support always gets me through! Jo x

Congratulations and thank you so much for Elfing for Jo again! I always love seeing your pic appear on her challenges because I know we have a fun card in store to enjoy. This penguin is hilarions....that expression on its face!! lol.. Great card and fun theme!!

I, too, am so glad Jo is continuing on with CKS....and I am glad she has felt free to change it to monthly for the first part of the year. It's a fab challenge spot!! Thank you for the part you have played in making it that way.
Hugs and Happy New Year!!
