Lovin' the Penguins!!

Yup...I finally received my 'Penguin Paradise' set from my Ebay splurges. I have been trying to win the auctions for this set for like the last year and I keep getting out bid. I finally decided no matter what I was getting this set!! So I bid my little heart out and won!! Tonight I sat down and made my first card with these little cuties and I must say I am in love. What do ya think??
This one was done using Tempting Turquoise, Gable Green and Regal Rose. I ran the Tempting Turquoise layer through my Cuttlebug with the Divine Swirls folder, then swiped it with a paper towel that I had added white ink to. The 'Aloha' was punched out from my Cuttlebug using my 'Olivia Alphabet Die'. I then sponged ink to make them stand out and blend with the other colors. Colored the little guy with ink and blender pens. I also added my clear glitter gel Sakura pen to the splashes,outlined the waves, dotted the center of the flowers of his swim trunks and outlined the Gable Green layer and Regal Rose layer. I then got to use my new Hawaiian Primas. The inside says 'Just a little note to brighten up your day and let you know I think you are Special in Every Way!' This is a new stamp that I bought from an online Garage Sale on a Yahoo list I belong to for Canadian Stampers(CST). I think it is a great stamp for those 'just because' cards.
I really should give this to someone special...but I think it might just stay in my stamproom for a bit...he is just too cute...or I may have to make a few more!!
Thanks for stoppin' by :0)

PS What kind of Primas are those? Which "collection" or bottle or box or whatever?

Thanks,
