"Snow" Bird

Here in the north, we refer to people who winter in the south as "snow birds". My card is the opposite. Since penguins are in the extreme south where there is extreme cold, my "snow bird" traveled north to find some sand and sun.
This is inspired by my recent trip to Puerto Rico. It was 1 degree when we left Indiana last week and while we were gone, a major snow storm hit the United States. We so wanted to stay longer but alas, we had to return home. Thankfully the snow was gone here when we arrived home. I know some are still struggling with removal of several feet of snow.
I think the SU cardbase is called Lost Lagoon. I found some shimmery paper from DCWV that pretty well matched. It is hard to tell in the picture but the background square is really glistening. Waves are from SU Moonlight DSP. The sand patch is from my scrap box. The tree and penguin are My Favorite Things, colored with pencils and fussy cut. Oops, Mr Penguin forgot his sunblock and is getting a bit of burn on his chubby little tummy. Dream is a die from Little Yellow Bicycle. Are you dreaming of fun in the sun?
The theme this week at  Tuesday Morning Sketches is winter using this sketch

I think I qualify for the winter theme since penguins are really winter climate birds. Are penguins really birds? I don't think they fly. But they do lay eggs.
I am also submitting to Tuesday Throwdown challenge of Anything Goes.
Looks like I am in for some camera repair. I cleaned the lens but am still getting that circle shadow up there on the top. I hope all of my vacation pictures don't have that spot on them.


  1. Your little beach scene is so cute. Love that your penguins little tum is getting a bit red. He'd better flip over!!

  2. This is so cute!! How nice to have a warm get-away from winter!
    Thanks for playing along this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!
