P. P. P. Pick up a Penguin 4 or more.

Thank you all ever so much for coming to my aid regarding all these Penguins that my True love is sending to me . Jane let me know that they were having smoked Salmon for Christmas Day so I have popped 3 on the bus to her . They are waddling on their way as we speak.  I sent 4 more over to the Playground as Di said she had a pack of Tuna for them. Emma said her brother would like some on his farm so I have loaded up the tractor and they are on their way. Phew. It is nice and quiet here now!

Oh no a knock on the door!

On the Fourth day of Christmas my True Love/Not sent me four Penguins. Now look, you can pretty them up as much as you like with bows and lace and such but it does not detract from the fact you have sent me FOUR more penguins.

I was having fish fingers for lunch but looks like I will be sharing.
Image is a freebie from Crafts Beautiful  magazine. I have used my watercolours from Caran D'Ache to colour the penguins and the background. Stitched round with purple thread. The snowflake is a die from Memory Box. Sentiment a magazine freebie and the Die cut for it is by John Next Door JND003 mini Tags set. Pearls, ribbon and lace from my stash.

On the Fifth day of Christmas my True Love/Not sent me Five Penguins.  Sending flowers with them won't work their charm on me either I can still count!!!!

Just used grey water colouring on this card. The paper is a freebie from Making Cards Paper Craft Special 2017. The black leaves are Crealies CLCS 11 die and the poinsettia and berries dies from John Next Door. Image is a freebie from Crafts Beautiful  magazine.   Sentiment is a magazine freebie and the ribbon/pearls from my stash. I have used silver stickles glue  but not showing up in photo. There IRL.
  Found a packet of fish cakes lurking  in the freezer so that has kept them quiet but that is it now as the fridge and freezer have been ransacked.

:D Your True Love is a True Damage! :D LOL
...Perhaps I have a solution for you: buy some fishes stamps with the voucher you won at Country View Challenge :D LOL(BIG CONGRATS!! :D Well deserved!) you could feed all those penguins without problems :D
Great designs, you are very creative, I wouldn't have known how doing a lot of cards increasing a single penguin stamp. Love all the details on them all.
I wish you and your hubby a peaceful Merry Christmas!

Be Thankful that he is sending you Penguins - and not elves. Can you imagine that? Your cards are all beautiful. I particularly like the colour scheme of the "four penguins" card.

Di said...

Snort! They arrived, and they smell summick awful! Dudley is flatly refusing to go into the garden to do his own toileting essentials and Parsnip is running around with a hose pipe and a peg on his nose. trying to hose them down to clear the air a bit. The neighbours are beginning to get twitchy already. I found two more tins of salmon and also some tinned pilchards, just for emergency supplies like - this place isn't a B & B!

Love your cards - cuter than when you smell them!

Your penguins are super fun, Mrs. A! For your sake, I hope it ends at 6 but I'm thinking it will not! I can send some cans of sardines if it will help! Merry Christmas!

As the saying goes "the more the merrier" enjoy the company with songs, dance and they won't see that there is no snacks...
Enjoy the Holidays and thanks for sharing your it

Brenda in IN said...

Sounds to me like you need more squid, krill and this time I'll send an octopus.

KandA said...

Ha ha ha, super penguins Mrs A, but no tins of salmon or fish of any kind to be had here (honest) Hope you have a super christmas xx

Donna said...

I am getting in late to the penguin party but I know where you can send a few. My son and DIL live in the Boston, MA area and she ADORES penguins. She has penguin everything around the house and I got her a penguin sweatshirt and a penguin lunchbox for Christmas. LOL! And Boston has an awesome aquarium with quite a nice collection of penguins. They wouldn't notice a few more and they'd be well fed! Lovely coloring. You've got that down to a tee with all these penguins. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, Mrs. A!

Boy, these guys are getting around, lol - and they've started their own counting party game, lol? Thanks so much for playing at Sparkles!

Kathleen said...

To be honest they look a bit pale, to me what they really need is some Haddock Loin, did wonders for the Grandson's this tea time. Hope the Doc has bought you a huge batch for Christmas.
Hope you have a lovely Christmas and very best wishes for 2020.

Oh do I love those penguin images, even if the penguins themselves are making themselves into quite a nuisance. Thank goodness you have a few friends who have stepped up and accepted shipments of penguins for the holidays, hee hee! Also, it's a good thing you don't have my address because we had no room for extras at our house!
