Take a look!


You can see my hand in this one so it'll give you an idea how big he is!
Hubby decided to call him BRUISER!!!
Desn't he look like something from the "Alien" movie!!!!???

We thought Bud was big, but he's a little mite beside Bruiser! Yikes!

Of Penguins and Polar Bears

Hey, everyone! The challenge is up at QKR STAMPEDE and it's {any winged creature}! 
My winged creature is a penguin. So sad as even though it has wings, it can't fly! Why is that? Why would an animal be given wings but not be blessed with the ability to use them to fly???
 I guess he can use them for other awesome things, such as swimming, diving and porpoising!
What other winged creature can do that, hmmm???

Snow Much Fun


This digi is called Enjoying the Ride
 Oh, and something else. Penguins and Polar Bears do not live together! The Polar Bears live in the Arctic and Penguins are in the Antarctic. But many artists place them together because they make a cute and adorable couple!! These guys do look like they are having a blast!!!

Challenges:
~Scrapbooking Queen-anything goes
~Eureka-great outdoors
~Paper Makeup Stamps-anything goes
~Bearly Mine-color inspiration
 
~ABC Christmas-K is for Kept Safe (I've been holding on to some little snowflake buttons for a long time but I think this is my last one. I love them and need to find some more)
~Christmas at Sweet Stampin'-winter sports (sliding!!!)
~Di's Digi Designs-winged things

Have a happy Friday and a safe weekend!
