Red White & Penguin

Morning all, hope you are fine.  Things are somewhat subdued here at Squirrel Towers today, basically because I am so frazzled after the week I've had at work.  Exhausted only just begins to come near it.  So when I read this morning's LESS IS MORE challenge Your Own Flag Colours and an idea popped into my head, even though it was a daft idea, I just ran with it (actually, scrub that, not ran, staggered is better) to the craft room.

And there are some ideas that you get, that you can't move away from until you have put them onto card.  And this is one of those.  Hopefully now it's out I might have a better idea replace it!


I'm guessing that the red, white and blue is a bit of a giveaway, but there are several countries with that scheme so I will, just for the record, confirm that I'm in the UK!  I've used A Pile Of Penguins from Laurence Design and coloured with Royal Blue and Poppy ProMarkers.  Sentiment, stamped in Danube Blue, is a Penny Black.

Hugs Sxx
