Here's our sketch for this week:



...........and here's my take on the sketch



As soon as I saw this cute little peguin I knew he would go perfectly with Jillibean Soup's new Christmas papers, which just so happen to feature penguins. I added a paper-pieced penguin scarf using Doodlebug dp, and some new MME twine, and there you have it. Such a fun, easy sketch to work with. Thanks Jen.
