Pickle the Penguin.

LOL, no, no, no, this is not some strange recipe for preserving penguins! This cutie is another stamp from Wild Rose Studios! and his name is Pickle, the stamp is actually called Pickle with Poinsettia.
I have a full blown cold, headache, runny nose and sneezing and coughing fits, I was going to go to craft this morning at Shirley's house, but after waking up like this I thought it wouldn't be fair to anyone else to spread my germs, so I had a very quiet day at home. I stayed in my pj's until about 11 a.m. and haven't been further afield than our letterbox. I was supposed to go to choir practise tonight they had two conductors auditioning and then we can write who we would prefer, we have had both of them helping us this year and I prefer the male conductor to the older woman conductor, I just couldn't get there. I do hope she doesn't get it, it used to be something I looked forward to each week, but she does not make it fun.
Adrian's hand continues to improve and he now has nearly all the mobility back but it is still fairly tender.
Running late again with my posting, so here is my card,
It is on red card from SU, stripey paper from stash, polka dot ribbon from stash and some acrylic dots - I coloured the image with Copics and stamped the greeting from a new set of word stamps from SU.
I would like to enter this into Crafting When We Can - Christmas challenge
Simon Says Stanp and Show - challenge is to use stripes
