It fell off the shelf

Hello my wonderful crafty pals and a warm welcome to my new pal, sorry I haven't been able to follow you yet but a mixture of blogger and broadband is conspiring against me. Blogger keeps coming up saying I am trying to log in from a different location and I need a verification code again. Last time this happened my blog turned into Portuguese, at least today that is still ok. Thank You all for your comments and I am happy with what I shall be doing on those cards. 
As my title says "it fell off the shelf" so I shall not keep you all in suspenders any longer, it being my Christmas snippets box and my card is heading for the playground. Now I thought I was being clever a year or two ago and bought this cuttlekids penguin die, but boy did I find my brain just wouldn't fix it together properly, so the bits got thrown in the box and here they are today. I think one penguin is missing a white bit. All my Christmas cards this year are going to be bits based, I'm off now to find that snowman decoupage I won years ago, don't remember how or why that came about. 
Paper  and card - card blank is 7 x 5 ,
 Dies used - Wplus9 birthday basics cut from little snippets  for the gifts,
the sleigh cut using my craftrobo (I think)
the cuttlekids penguins,
the backing paper from my scrap box cut using Sue Wilson Seville Die. 
Hugs to all, Flora.

I am entering this into the snippets playground where I love to have a browse
and Winter Wonderland challenge "Winter Animals"
christmas blog challenge

  2. Hi FLora...your Penguins look great didn't even notice his missing piece....great Christmas card


  3. Love these two portly penguins - maybe they overdid the pud!!

  4. Oh! Flora you are the limit!! I know where coming from with those Dies.
    I had a few but unlike you I "binned" the lot, Dies as well as the bits. Actually I gave them to the school. Think the kids managed to put them together.......well they would!!
    Remember no more buying ......... have to say you have made a fantastic card even though you think bits are missing. Certainly looks good from where I am sitting.
    Enjoy the rest of the day

  5. Oh Flora - you do make me giggle! LOVE the penguins and I think one is carrying a newspaper under his wing, the other one isn't - that's the explanation!
