Penguins in the Playground

I've brought three jolly penguins to the Playground this week - a fun Christmas card using up a few of my snippets with a stamp from another magazine freebie set.  The prize this week is a jolly useful gadget to help in removing all the tiny pieces from intricate die cuts.  I'm only playing for fun because I already have one of these and can vouch for the fact that it does work.  I stamped the penguins onto snippets of white card, coloured using alcohol pens and all the cutting out is done with scissors.  The snowy ground is a snippet left from a sheet of glitter card and the 'sign board' was one of a few left on a sheet of digital 'tickets' downloaded and printed a few years ago.  The trees were die cut and I managed to find a piece of suitable background paper lurking in the stash.
