Penguin Lust

Remember Bloom County and Opus? Well these little guys are MUCH cuter! I made this for another TCP Tuesday challenge. Susan's challenge was to use any TCP image with a heart in addition to using a CutUps die with a heart. This also qualifies for the Valentine's blog hop over on Miss Meowy's blog. Check it out here for all the deets.

I actually made this for my manager to give to her sweet hubby. She really loves penguins (and she says that hubby walks kinda like a penguin due to some health concerns). Hubby also wears an article of clothing with some kind of argyle pattern every day (they both work with me so I can confirm that this true) thus the embossed argyle pattern. She asked for that classic combo of Red, Black, and White.

This cute little penguin image fit the challenge perfectly (Love Stinks from the last release from TCP) along with one of the most unique heart dies out there (Heart Trio also from TCP). That sweet little Penguin giving the practical "fishy" gift to his beloved just melts my heart! I bet he makes sure that there is air in her tires and the appropriate level of fluids in her car (if she were to drive that is)! Very sweet and easy card due to the sweet image and beautiful patterned paper. Just the simplest of Copic coloring makes these sweet little guys POP!



Stamps: Love Stinks (TCP)
Paper: White (PTI), Real Red (SU), Yours Truly (EP patterned paper)
Other: Heart Trio CutUps and Glitzy German glass glitter (TCP), Heart Stick Pins (Maya Road), various going, nesties, Argyle embossing folder (CB)
