Here's my card using this week's iSpy Sketch (ISSC44). This week's sketch is based on this super cute card from artist Christine Okken. I decided to use this adorable little penguin from The Cat's Pajamas. Their recent release is so adorable that I was planning on using one of the new images with this sketch. However, a lost mail key has the poor critters sitting out in the cold. Hopefully the key will turn up soon!!
