Definitely not a robin

Good morning everyone, I hope you missed the worst of the big storm. We were very lucky here in Derbyshire because it wasn't nearly as bad as forecast, thank goodness!
Well I promised no more robins for a wee while so here is a penguin for a change. I took this photograph a few years ago at Twycross Zoo :o)


White linen card folded and cut to 7x5.
I used my A4 Embossalicious folder on white pearlised card for the backing, then lightly chalked it. Penguin photograph printed onto Papermania textured card then cut with Nestie. Words are from an old SeeDs stamp set :o)

Beautiful card Jackie - the penguin is gorgeous and so perfect for a Christmas card. Love how you used the ornament dies for the penguin and the sentiments - brilliant idea!

Glad the storm didn't affect your area too badly. I saw some footage on our news here and the storm damage looked pretty bad for some areas.
