Penguins, cupcakes, and mice

I couldn't sleep this morning, so I was browsing through all the challenge sites when I came upon not one, but two challenges that called for penguins! According to Die Cuttin Diva's, January 20 was Peguin Awareness Day! My oldest daughter was in love with penguins for the longest time so I thought it would be appropriate to do a card using them. I used the SU owl punch and petal punch to make my little guy. I decided to have him fishing because the photo inspiration from (Pin)spirational had these cute little penguins with some fish in a bucket near them. And the clouds are die cut from the SU set Scentsationl Season.

The next card is also from a photo inspiration. This one is from Cupcake Inspirations and the sketch is from CAS(E) this Sketch.


I love the green and blue they choose. And I really just want to take a bite out of one of them!

This last one is for The Male Room, who had a male get well theme, House-Mouse & Friends, which was to ink up a never before used stamp, and Card A Day Blog who also had a get well theme. This is a really useful card, because you can pull the tissue out if you need it!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed my cards.
