Patty Penguin

I have been so busy with Mom and back and forth to the clinic and hospital with her. She is out again and doing ok. Dehydrated and her kidney levels was way down. Then with Thanksgiving I got a little behind again.
We got snow on Thursday morning and this time it stayed. Been real cold here so have been trying to stay in as much as possible with this fibro.
I love working with punches. This little penguin turned out so cute. I put him on a mini notebook. I also used the Snowflake embossing folder with Bashful Blue and put that as my background cover and inside cover. I just used black card stock for the binding.
For punches I used the following:
Word Punch (Real Red)
1/2" circle punch (Real Red)
1 1/4" circle punch (head done in basic black)
13/8" circle punch ( hat done in whisper white)
Wide Oval Punch (basic black for body)
Large Oval Punch (whisper white for belly)
Small Oval Punch (basic black for his arms)
1/4" circle punch (eyes) Now I have two 1/4" punches one is larger than the other so did the smaller one in basic black for his eyeballs.
Beak and feet are done with the punch that has 3 flowers on it.
I also used the 2 way glue pen to glue him together.
You can find a tutorial video here. Heather tells you all the punches you need before she gets started on showing you how to make the penguin. So cute!
Hope you enjoy.

Hi Debby, Adorable card! Thanks so much for the nice comments on my stuff, just wanted to let you know it isn't the blogspot restricting my upload/download, it is my satelitte service wildblue. I live in an area that only has satelitte or dial up. Just wanted to clear that up. Thanks off to explore your great blog. Love the etched candles, I will have to do that too.
