Blogger's Challenge Friday!!

Good Morning everyone! I'm really ready for this upcoming weekend. The only thing on the agenda is one T-Ball game and then we are free to do whatever we want to!!! I'm hoping to stamp the weekend away! Wouldn't it be wonderful if I could actually get the end of the school year gifts for all of the teachers made? I'd be thrilled to pieces!

Well, enough of my rambling...lol! Here is my card for this week's Blogger's Challenge. This little guy popped right into my head once I knew this week's theme was animals. Elbert, (my little name for him) from Stampin' Up's Happy Heart Day set, is colored up with watercolor pencils. I also used Stampin' Up's Pumpkin Pie, Pixie Pink, and their retired Dots and Dashes Designer Paper. The Making Memories swirl has a snip-it of May Arts ribbon tied to it and the buttons are from American Crafts. I added a little bit of faux stitching and some Star Dust Stickles on the hearts for some extra sparkle.

If you'd like to check out some other wonderful creations with animals, please click on my Blogger's Challenge link (right sidebar) to see what the other ladies in the group came up with. I wish you all a very happy weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by...Toodles!!! :D
