Penguin fun

Don't these little penguins just make you smile?!  Last time, I used this image, I colored the "snow" penguin black and white, but this time I went more realistic and left him white.  I definitely think I like it better this way.  I made 5 cards yesterday (see the previous posts if you're interested) and I think this is my favorite, but it also took the most time because I had to stamp the papers.  I wanted stripes (was just in a stripes mood) and didn't have any in the correct color scheme.  And then I had to make something to match.  A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, right?
