Good Morning & Happy Monday Stamping Friends!

It's ABC Challenge time & this week we want you to show off your cards featuring animals.  That's right...pull out those animals stamps or print out your fave digital animal images & make something pretty for us to comment on!!!  Check out our blog to see what the rest of the Design Team created & to read up on our rules so you all can play along with us!!!  You have until next Sunday, June 16, 2013 @ Noon EST to link your cards.  I look forward to seeing what you come up with!!

I really struggled with my creation for this week peeps!  I'm still making the last of my organized convention swaps  & I want to continue to work on my masculine cards so I cut the card stock & laid out my pieces with a totally different concept in mind but once I'd done didn't work for me!  I was upset but I also wasn't about to waste all my card stock so I continued to play with it until I came up with the design you see posted above.  I'm much happier with this card & I'm sure the recipients will be as well!!!

I'm entering this creation in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
