Penguin Love --Blog Candy

Here's a card I made for the Squigglefly Challenge this week. The theme for this week is called "Have a Heart, Please" so the only requirement is that the card contains a heart somewhere. I think the penguins themselves on this card show so much heart! Of course though, there's a heart on the little one's chest and a heart in the embellishment that I painted with Smooch.
I wish the image did this card more justice as both the papers are shiny metallic lustre and so shimmery. This image comes from Squigglefly and is called "Penguin Family". It is a newly released image (click here).

Let me add a blog candy question for the day, what's your favorite animal for making cards? Also, be sure an check the winner list (there's one on Feb 1st, and one on Feb 15th), new names have been added! See your name? drop me an email with your address, htondre@aol.com

Project Materials: Cardstock (AC Lustre, Paper Temptress, Neenah); Digi Stamp (Squigglefly), Bling (Michaels); Sticker (Hobby Lobby); Color (Copic markers); Punch (Martha Stewart); Die Cut (Spellbinders Nestabilities);

Super cute and sweet Holley! I love your coloring on the penguins, and the red strip down the middle is perfect! My favorite animal to make a card with is either dogs or cats because there are so many people I have on my card list that love them.

Cute card!
My fave animal for making cards/scrapbooking etc at the moment are birds... Flying variety. Wonderfully majestic but I am also intrigued by wings.... So butterflies, fairies, Pegasus, dragon flies are a close second

I'm kind-of into some teddy bear images that I have oh and the dragons on Dustin Pike-those are the favorite animals for right now. I always like black/white/red cards so yours is a sure hit!!

I love the penguin family! They're full of Heart!

Do butterflies count as an animal to use on cards? It's hard for me to even make a card that doesn't have one on it! LOL

Awesome image and card. Whimsical yet classy.

Margaret said...

Penguins are so sweet. My daughter adopted one at Paignton zoo at Christmas for her boyfriend. They've gone to see it today, I hope that she took some photos.

If you can count teddies as animals then that's what I use the most but I do like using frogs too as I love them

Awwww! Precious! The metallic lustre papers are so hard to photograph in all their glory. This image and card are just fab!
My favorite critter to use on cards is mice, especially on the House Mouse stamps. I just finished one a couple hours ago in fact: http://cardsbyann.wordpress.com/2012/02/18/mousey-wishes/ I also use lots of butterflies and dragonflies if that counts? ;)

To answer your question ... I LOVE using butterflies on my cards - either as the main image or just as an embellishment. I love, love, love butterflies. lol

Gorgeous card Holley. My fav animals to use on stamp are mice. I love the cute images of mice to bits.

judyjstamper said...

Cute card Holley - your question is tough for me b/c it's whatever would strike me at the moment. I do tend to use my western theme stamps (horses) though.

Love the penguin Holley!

Such a sweet card!! I think it shows a ton of heart! I love to color bears as an animal favorite. There seem to be quite a few really great stamp sets with bears.

Rhonda Miller said...
