Spotlighting Penguins for Friday Mashup!

Hello and welcome to another Friday Mashup challenge, and it's time for me to host again!

If you've been by my blog before its easy to see that I love and adore moose. Well, I also happen to simply adore penguins! How cute are they? My house is filled with moose and penguin items, these 2 animals just always bring a big smile to my face. Today I'd love to see every ones projects that use a penguin image--it's winter(well, at least in this hemisphere!) and what better animal to create a project with when it's cold out? While you are at it spotlight the penguin or anything else in your project! I love the spotlight technique, I think its a great way to get an image to stand out.

For my card I went with some Christmas penguins. I love Christmas cards and make them all year long so I don't see a problem with jolly penguins in February :) I chose to spotlight the middle penguin and his letter "O".
