Penguin Beach Chair

Hi :)  It's Kathy here and I'm sharing a Christmas card with a difference today for Whimsy Stamps.

My daughter loves to give her teachers Christmas cards with a heartfelt message inside

So I wanted a card for a teacher that said "Merry Christmas, Thanks for everything and Have a great holiday"  all rolled into one.

When I saw Crissy Armstrong's stamp called Penguin Beach Chair, I knew it would be absolutely perfect!!!

I do love snow on Christmas cards, it looks so pretty doesn't it?!  But we don't have snow in Tassie so it's great to be able to make a warm and sunny Christmas card.  Hopefully her teacher gets to laze around in the sunshine like this for the entire holidays.  I'm sure they deserve it  :)

I coloured the cute penguin with Copics and I also used them to make a very simple background.

 Copics used :

E 11, 13, 31, 41, 42, 43, 55
W 00, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9
C 5, 7
BG 000, 09, 10
B 93, 95
R 000, 27,29, 30, 59
Y 15, 26
YR 14. 16. 18

I thought the word "Cheers" was a great sentiment to use with this penguin.
So I used the Bold ABC Die to cut out the letters from white card.
It looks great on this clean and simple card and doesn't detract from the adorable penguin.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :

Penny Black and more challenge - make someone smile
Word art Wednesday - anything goes
