Well, Nic, I don't know what you don't like about it?! You've coloured that cute penguin beautifully and I love your choice of funky bright colours. With the sentiment, I envisage him tangled up in a load of fairy lights or tinsel! Lisa X

Thermal undies and a cushion are required when I put on ice skates - like the penguin, I always seem to sit on the ice more than I skate!!
Great card and thanks for making me smile this morning.

Janet - aka stacky said...

I can't imagine why you don't like it cos it is fabulous xx

Sarah said...

Oh dear, we are a pair aren't we (or even most of us crafters are I would imagine!) even when a wonderful card is made, there we are picking it apart not liking it!

I think someone will have to think of a term for the condition. Personally I call it Sarah-itis - an irrational dislike of a fab card and feeling the need to pull it apart again!

Wonder what the cure is!!

Gorgeous card by the way - love the penguin and the papers are wonderfully bright and cheerful.

Sarah
