Penguin light

Hi Everyone, life has taken over and I am having a slight break from blogging, time is of the essence for me, please accept my apologies for lack of visits to you. - BUT, my DT post today is for the -

I had a a lot of ideas, but one came back to me time and time again and it's this Penguin Lantern (battery tea light holder.) I used a file from the Silhouette store cut it from black card then attached it to a piece of vellum, OK very simple, BUT who said the challenge had to be difficult? Although my Teamies have produced some superb work, go take a looky and why not join us.

I've taken the photos at different angles to show the different sizes of the penguins and the fact I made it big enough to hold 2 battery tea lights, hubbies younger nephew loved it. It made it worth while.
I'll be back in a few days - hopefully to show what I have been doing, if life allows!
