ArtyGirlz Animals Challenge
The challenge at ArtyGirlz this week is animals. It is such a beautiful sunny day here today that I have decided to use bright, cheery colours on my card. I have stamped and coloured this image by Penny Black and added glitter to the flowers and bees and also a few gems. The rectangles are cut with Nestabilities dies. I'm not too sure about the flower in the corner but it's stuck on now so will have to stay!!

Andrea this is so lovely, love all the touches of glitter and the pastel colours...It's sunny here today which makes a nice change...like a monsoon yesterday lol....ok maybe a slight exaggeration ;)

I think the flower looks great there too so don't try picking it off !!

This is so sweet! Love the bunny, the bees, and I do like the flower too. Very soft and cheery!

Speaking of monsoons, here in Australia (Queensland) we are having real ones and 2/3 of the state is extremely flooded ...

I'm not sure I'll get this one done. I've only just got my Caardvarks finished & have my paper08 page to do. The retreat is getting closer & Im pushed to get stuff ready!
Think I'll need a holiday to recover from it.
