Penguin's Winter Fun

Det kjempesøte pingvin motivet på julekortet mitt er et stempel fra Whiff of Joy og Alison Acton. WOJ har dessverre har sluttet som butikk, men mange fører fremdeles stempler fra dem (helt til det går tomt).. PapirPlaneten har ganske mange igjen :)

Alison Acton går under nicket @dooomcat på nett, og hun har en helt hysterisk morsom tegneserie ~ Bearnuts ~ som du kan lese helt fra begynnelsen på denne siden. NB: ikke ment for sarte sjeler ;)

The supercute penguin motif on my christmascard is an old rubberstamp from Whiff of Joy, who's webshoppe sadly no longer exists. But there are still many stores who still have them in stock if you search around for it!

The artist behind the motif is Alison Acton, and although I don't believe she's licensing her art as stamps anywhere, she still creates fanart and images you can get on tees, I got a couple cool ones in my always growing tee-stash ;)  
She goes by @doomcat online and also has THE funniest webcomic, super weird and nerdy, so dark sometimes, and absolutely not for the faint hearted.. ;)  Bearnuts ~ wich you can read from the beginning on this page here
