Will you be my Valentine?

Today us Valentine's Day!
I hope everyone has a lovely day!
A penguin may seem an unlikely character for a Valentine greeting, but there's a bit of a story to this one. I have a friend who asked me to make a Valentine card for his wife and he specifically requested a penguin.   It seems that last month, for her birthday, he bought a jolly looking card for her with penguins on, failing to notice that it was in fact a Christmas card!!! Needless to say his wife noticed it immediately and he was simply amused by his mistake. Now, wishing to keep the penguin theme going, he gave me this request! Funnily enough only yesterday, his wife put a memory on Facebook of seeing the penguins at Philip Island in Australia, so it was quite topical as far as that was concerned too.
This little chap is a cut file from Silhouette, with an added punched heart, and a computer generated sentiment in what I think is All Things Pink font.
I popped him onto dimensional pads for a little interest!

I am SO disappointed by the result of the impeachment trial in the US... just how so many Republican senators could vote to acquit after such damning evidence is beyond my comprehension. Let's hope justice comes by some other method!



  1. I think this penguin is charming and it’s a nice clean design with a sweet backstory too. Thanks for joining our challenge at Inkspirational.

  2. BEAUTIFUL CAS creation Chrissie! Thank you for joining us at INkspirational~

  3. Very cute and a great story as well! I don't know how the weather is in South Hampton at the moment, but here in large parts of the US this Valentine's Day penguin would be right at home! Thanks for sharing him with us at ATCAS. xoxo, Fran

  4. Absolutely adorable penguin, Chrissie! I love how he's holding the heart and your CAS design is sheer perfection! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Addicted to CAS!

  5. Love the personalized Valentine's Day card. I like how the cute penguin is holding the heart - almost like it's holding it's own Valentine's Day card for it's Valentine. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to CAS.

  6. That's the sweetest story Chrissie - I do love a personalised card. This is beautiful too, the cute penguin holding the heart against that wonderful textured card base. Thanks for coming to play with us at Addicted to CAS :) Vicky x
