Adorable Animals

This weekend I am working on 9 sketches for Taylored Expressions Year of Cupcake Challenges Celebration! I just recently discovered her blog and store...she has some adorable little cupcake images along with other 'yummy' items! I really want to get my hands on some of the fabulous felt buttons she carries. Taylor is offering up a chance to win a $10 G.C. to her store for each sketch you complete and if you complete all 9 you have a chance to win an amazing prize! You have until Thursday so I suggest you go check it out and get crackin'!

Now, onto my card...I used the TECC52AW sketch which you can find HERE. And I was inspired by the Etsy store that Ashley is featuring this week, Zozo Cards. This store has absolutely adorable animal cards, magnets, etc. In fact, as I was browsing their site for inspiration, I realized that I really 'NEED' some cute animal stamps! :) Fortunately, I found some great paper in my Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie paper pad to use. Here is what I came up with...
Along with Zozo Cards' cute images, I was really inspired by all the soft colors and whimsical feel to the cards. Here are a few of my favorites:


Also, THIS Cute Safari Set really caught my eye because it reminded me of a card I created awhile back at a Stampin' Up party using SU's Wild About You set. So, I thought I would share it today too...

Thanks for visiting today! Hope you are inspired to do some crafting of your own...maybe for a challenge or two! :)


Supplies used for Hey Chick! card: Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie paper pad; Unity Hey Chick Stamp; Paper Salon's Oh Sew Fun Tailored Tin (flower stamps); Prima flowers; MM brads; SU pumpkin pie ink; Colorbox ink (two shades of yellow) Extra details: The orange flower and circle chick are popped up on foam squares. I repeatedly stamped the smaller flower stamp in two different shades of yellow (on the center white panel) to create a nice background for the orange flower.

Super cute cards Kerry! I love those little chicks on your EtsyInspired card! So cute and very resourceful using the paper to punch out animals! I love it! Thanks for playing along with us, it means a lot to me!
