An Animal-Riffic Challenge is going on!

Wow. . . the weeks are really flyin' by lately, dontcha think?  Or maybe it's just me . . . *sigh*  my Gram told me they would get shorter as I got older . . . (miss you Gram), and you know, she was RIGHT!  lol

Anyway, before I get too mushy, there is another GREAT challenge going on over at KL Stampin N Scrappin's Design Team blog . . . Our hostess, Risa, has challenged us all to incorporate animals into our creations this week, and there are sure a lot of those at the KL Stampin N Scrappin Store.  I had a hard time choosing which one I wanted to use.  lol

Finally decided on a cute image we carry in the store from Stampavie and designed by Penny Johnson (sorry I covered up the signature on the image with my sentiment, Penny).  It's called Bobby and Me, colored with Copics and prismacolor pencils for the red especially (can't seem to get the hang of red with my Copics yet).  For those of you from my generation or my mother's, every time I use this stamp I think of the old song Me and Bobby McGee, but it's a good tune though, right?  LOL

I also was at a loss for what sketch to use, so I headed to my favorite on-line gallery
for us stampers (SplitCoastStampers)
and found Roxie's SC279 would fit the bill perfectly!  :)

Then I pulled out some BasicGrey JuneBug and Lime Rickey
(I usually head for Lime Rickey when it comes to boy type images,
not sure why, but it always looks good).
I added a little hemp cording, a dog bone charm, button and pulled out
a GREAT sentiment set from C.C. Designs
called SugarPlum Sentiments
(not carried in the store anymore, but you may
still find it at from Christine).

Also, don't forget -- There is a sale going on at KL Stampin N Scrappin

This is so cute, Kelly! That image was perfect for the challenge, and I, too, always lean towards Lime Rickey for boy cards! Hope you have a great week! :)
