Is it an owl or is it a penguin?

I've changed my little owl from the Owl Builder Punch into a penguin for todays card.  This was easy to do, just take off the ears and feet.  Don't worry he doesn't feel a thing!! 

The party penguin has been lifted up and balances on top of one of his friends.  He looks a bit precarious and it's made his eyes go all funny!  

So why have I gone all penguin?  Well it's for THE FRIDAY MASHUP which this week is to use a penguin on your card or the spotlighting technique or do both.  I've just gone for the penguins. 

To make the penguins I've punched them out of Basic Black, Whisper White and Pumpkin Pie for the beak and feet.  I used Boho Blossoms to punch out a little flower then trimmed them for each foot. 

Party boys hat was cut out of Basic Black with some Celebrations Designer Paper (now retired) paper pieced on top. 

The background panel was stamped in Bashful Blue on Whisper White using a little snowflake from Pennant Parade.  Then mounted onto Real Red card.  The long panel is just Whisper White on Real Red with a Scallop Edge Border along the bottom.  The card base is Basic Black. 

I followed the sketch over at SIMPLY STAMPIN' to make this fun card.  Here's the sketch -

Hi Aileen, LOL love that he doesn't feel a thing, great card so sweet:0) Isn't this google friend connect thing a pain, ah well at least Mr Linky came up trumps for us LOL xxx

The google friend connect is only going away for non blogger blogs. You can still use it for Google based blogs.

Anyway, I'm sorry you missed the deadline for our challenge Aileen. Your card is fabulous!
