LOTV Teddy with Penguin

Good evening everyone, l am so pleased that l have managed a few posts within days.  Today started off damp and dull but mid morning the sun came through so we headed off to the allotment to build new compost bins (l watched lol), just need a day or so to  finish off the digging for the winter but the ground is so wet.  The sun is just beautiful today but there is just a nip in the air.

So on with the card - l bought this LOTV stamp at Harrogate on Sunday, can you believe l only bought three of there stamps, this one and the two geisha girls which l hope to ink up soon.

The beak debate- Are Penguins beaks black or yellow/orange??? When colouring this image l could not make my mind up so googled the question and according to Wiki Penguins beaks are indeed Black but whenever l see images coloured they are yellow, so what do you think - yellow or black?  I think l will be checking this out on my Life in The Freezer DVD... in the meantime l am going with black.

You're in a good productive mode Susan with another lovely creation.

It was a lovely day here as well when the mist cleared, little wind so quite warm.

You got me thinking now about Penguins beaks, off to do some research as it always niggles me when there is an unanswered question.

Lovely card Susan, & like you, I'm busy in the garden at the moment. Great new stamp & an interesting question on beaks. Guess I'm a mustard yellow fan but black looks good too - in a Panda sort of way!!! Thanks for looking out for 50p's for me, as with all collections you get most but there are a few you never seem to see. We'll keep searching though, before I resort to Ebay! Jx
