Potty About You

I've been back in my craft-room this weekend after a lovely long break in Mexico - while the rest of the UK was battling the Beast from the East, I was on a sun-bed in the Caribbean sipping cocktails - I feel so much better for it.

So I was asked to make an anniversary card with a pool playing penguin - I have some weird friends right!

This is what I created...

The pool cue was an inspiration - a wooden kebab stick, coloured with a pro-marker and decorated with a silver peel-off strip. The penguin digi is one of my favourite images from Blackberry Jelly, and the greeting was created in Publisher.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:
