Penguins in a Teacup: Missing You


  • Stamps – The Cat’s Pajamas “Ship Happens” and Hero Arts “Right at Home”
  • Patterned paper – My Mind’s Eye “Collectible: Memorable ‘Hello’ Cordial Paper” (both sides)
  • Cardstock – Bazzill and BoBunny
  • Dies – JustRite/Spellbinders “Vintage Labels Three” and Spellbinders “Standard Circle Large”
  • Ribbon

This is my last penguin card for a little while. I used another Cat’s Pajamas stamp and colored the image with Copic markers. I doubled-up the Vintage Labels die cuts for a little change. This is the final penguin card for Operation Penguin at Operation Write Home (OWH). There is a Brigadier General who has a certain fondness for penguins, and he has requested that we send penguin cards for his unit to send home. And many of us are happily fulfilling his request. This week’s Shopping Our Stash Challenge #134 is to make Miss You cards. I pulled this penguin stamp out of my stash unused! I’ve had it for a long time, too! The sentiment is one that I’ve used a number of time for OWH, and I found the patterned paper amid many other sheets of paper! I successfully shopped my stash, down to the little scrap of ribbon! Thanks for visiting today.
