Winter Wonderland - monochromatic + a few others

Good morning Bloggers :o) 
I know I have not been on much lately but I have tried to keep up with your postings. I am still in the throes of thinning the clutter out and taking dozens of books to charity shops etc. I am also on holiday from work this week and trying to take it leisurely, note I DID say leisurely LOL. I've come to the conclusion it not possible to be leisurely although I did manage to read a good book :o)
Anyway, I am babbling on so I must tell you that this is my entry for the
Winter Wonderland monochromatic Christmas card challenge.
I am also using it for a first time entry at Lexi's Creations use a photograph.
I opened my photograph in MS Publisher and added the sentiment with Word Art, then printed it straight onto linen card, cropped and folded it then added the stamped Craft's UK penguin which I coloured with only shades of grey copics.

I made a batch of 12 altogether, 5 in greyscale and 7 sepia. A very simple set of cards. I will put the sepia ones on later as I now have to prepare for my crafting friend Pauline who is coming over for a day of crafting, chinwagging and laffing :o)
