CCT 49 - Animal Magic

Sunday, 1 March 2009
This weeks challenge over at Cute Card Thursday is Animal Magic. All you need to do is include an animal somewhere on your card.

This challenge came at the right time as I've been making a card for my husband Jon who's off to Wolverhampton for a few days on a course. I wanted to make him a card that I could sneak into his holdall to find when he reaches the hotel. (I hope he doesn't decide to take a quick peek on my blog!). I've used the fab S-moo-ches set by Elzybells! This was part of their Valentine's release but can be used throughout the year. The image has been stamped and coloured with copics before being mounted onto blue bazzill cs. The base is made up of the same blue cs and white cs that has been embossed using the swiss dots folder. I've added some pale blue ribbon and a heart ribbon slider before mounting to a white card blank. The sentiment is also part of this set. I've finished off with 3 heart gemstones. I included the sentiment "I love ya, that's no bull" on the inside.

I hope he likes it. We're not apart that often so I know I'm going to miss him like crazy. He'll be gone two nights and that will feel like forever. At least I won't feel guilty for spending ages in my craft room or blog hopping!!

Hope everyone has had another enjoyable weekend and thank you for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.
