We've gone animal crazy at Sweet Stampin'

Hello blogworld

Nope you're not seeing things - I'm here again!

This time it's with my card for the new challenge at Sweet Stampin' and we've gone animal crazy!  This week we'd like to see animals featured on your project.  Don't forget there has to be stamping somewhere on your entry, whether it's a digi stamp or real rubber and ink it's still stamping required.

Our monthly sponsor is:



Who is offering one lucky person a £10 voucher.

Our weekly sponsor is:

Di's Digi Downloads

Who is also offering one lucky winner a $10 voucher.

I was very happy to be allowed to pick an image to play with from Di's for this challenge and here is my little creation:


I have to admit to not being so sure about this one - it's the flowers, I'm just not sure if it's working or not!  Looking at it now I'm not too unhappy with it, but it's not my favourite card ever.

I used:

Image; Di's Digi - Little Bunny Love, coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
Die-cut with a Nestie and chalked while in the die to give the background.
The papers are all First Edition - Up, Up and Away pad.
Martha Stewart punch.
Card and sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
Everything else is from my craft stash - the little flowers are so old that I can't even remember where they came from!  

So there we go, I'll leave the final decision on the card up to you and hope you have a lovely weekend - see ya's Monday, probably.

A challenge, or two:

Craft us Crazy - Valentine/Love or Animals - obviously I've gone for animals!

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Truly Scrumptious - Challenge 72 - Something Forgotten - the little flowers used in the bouquet (they've been stashed away in a drawer for more years than I can think and only came across them this week)

The Cutie Pie Challenge blog - #10 Favourite Song - OK, OK I know second entry and the flowers aren't buttercups, but this image was just so cute and it's another favourite song of mine - Build Me Up Buttercup, by The Foundations.  I know the lyrics aren't the most cheerful (always being let down by someone) but I just love the song!!!
