Merry Christmas Penguins

Hi, hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend. I've just finished work for today, just tomorrow morning to go and then I can relax. Quite a few challenges are asking for Christmas cards at the moment and I have been looking for an excuse to use one of the other LOTV stamps that fell into my basket the other day. I found my card quite hard to photograph today  (too little light in the back garden and too much in the front). This image is quite large so I was struggling with a layout until I remembered some cards that I bought from Hunkydory.

marianne poinsettia die
