LRW #708 – Things that Fly

Girlfriend Doni is our hostess this week at Little Red Wagon and she'd like to see 'Things that Fly'. Click on over to see what the other design team girlfriends have created this week and link up your own high-flying creations!

I've gone with a puffin Christmas card. You might think these are penguins, but no, they're puffins. Because penguins can't fly and puffins can. Don't believe me? Still think these guys look like penguins? Okay, confession time...I had it in my mind that this challenge was 'Things with Wings', not 'Things that Fly', so I went with Bugaboo's card sized Winter Penguins Puffins Collage digi, since penguins don't fly, but do have wings. Then I went to write this post,  double-checked the challenge number, and realized my error. As I don't have enough time to do another card...lets just pretend they're puffins.

Although penguins don't fly above water, they sure can fly in it. Per Smithsonian Magazine's 14 Fun Facts About Penguins, the fastest penguins can swim at up to 22 mph (35 kmh)!

The sentiment was created with Cafe & Brewery font. Nuvo Crystal Drops in Caribbean Ocean dress up the snowflakes.

  1. I think your card is adorable! Had you not mentioned it I wouldn't have realized penguins couldn't fly...duh me!

  2. I'm having a giggle here Shani, penguin puffin, potato potahto they're birds and they are so very cute, fabulous fun card..

  3. Of course they're puffins! (: Fantastic card! I love all the blue and the adorable birds too, obviously.

  4. That’s too funny as I’d originally thought the challenge was things with wings - which is why I added the little wing cut to my bird! I love how desperately you’ve tried to convince us that your sweet penguins are puffins (and why can’t they be) and/or that penguins do fly while swimming in water!

    Regardless of the images, they ARE adorable! The cool blues of your card are just perfect against the black and white!

  5. Looks like a puffin to me...and I absolutely love your card!
