A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge - Animals

Thank you to everyone who entered a card into our challenge last week over at "A Spoon Full of Sugar". It has been so lovely to visit your blogs and see all your wonderful creations.

For this weeks challenge we would love you to make a card with an animal somewhere in the design.

Remember you can use Sugar Nellie, Sarah Kay, Rachelle Anne Miller, Hanglar or High Hopes stamps in your work.

We have one of the new release High Hopes stamps "Henry the great" to send to one randomly chosen winner this week. The stamp has very kindly been donated by Bryony from Silly Monkey Crafts. Silly Monkey Crafts have the Sarah Kay stamps in stock and also lots of the new High Hope releases.




I decided for this weeks challenge I would make another of the image folders using Moni's fabulous tutorial. I did alter the sizings for this one so it is not as wide as the previous one I made. This one is made using a piece of card stock 6.5" x 12". The cute High Hopes image was very kindly sent to me from my friend Jakki. I have stuck the image down using craft foam pads to make it pop slightly. I am really pleased with how this turned out and and think the colour combination worked well. Hope you like it!

Have a great week.
Hugs,
