It's a beautiful Friday in Missouri - hope it's pretty where you are!
So, the other night, a conversation with dear granddaughter went something like this:
GD: "Grandma, where is PawPaw"?
Me: "He is in the office working"
GD: "Why is he in the office working"?
Me: "Umm....because that's what he likes to do"?
(anyone who knows my man, knows that he's a workaholic)
GD: "Grandma, when PawPaw gets done working in the office, can you go in there and make me something"?
Me: "Sure! What would you like me to make you"?
GD: "A penguin card".
Me: "Okay, I will do that"!
Dear Hubby and I share a workplace. Admittedly, I'm forcing him into a tinier corner little by little. He keeps talking of retiring because of his age. I really think he's talking retirement because I'm sort of pushing him out of his office!
Anyway, I didn't have any 'summer' or 'girly' penguins, so I popped over to Whimsy Stamps
to see if there were any in her digi collection. Voila!!! Look what I found! This darling Penguin Prima Ballerina Set
was waiting patiently to come live with me. I ordered it and began coloring immediately!
What I started with was this image:
I drew in some wood flooring and some walls that looked as if they belonged in a ballet studio. I also changed the sentiment to say "our" feet rather than "my" feet, and here's what will be going in the mail to dear granddaughter!
I hope that she likes it. I used a shimmer pen on the 'wall panels' to look a bit mirrored, and of course, the tutu, bow and shoes are PINK!
Thanks for stopping by today - have a great weekend!
