Penguin with candy cane

Penguins are becoming a fast favorite with me and this cute guy from "Catch the Bug" is so adorable.   I loved coloring him up and found that if you want to really make him an outstanding black tone, you can use a Sharpie marker, and as you can see, the border lines will still show through.   And, just so you won't be fooled, the sentiment is actually washi tape and not ribbon - great stuff to use and goes a long way for the price.
I would now like to enter the following:

Catch the Bug - anything goes
Kraftin' Kimmie - clean and simple
A Gem of a Challenge - clean and simple
Crafty Catz - sentiment
Holly Jolly Christmas - anything Christmas
