~ Animal Prints ~

Saturday, July 3, 2021

 Hiiii!!  How's it going?  It's July and as you can imagine hot, hot, hot here where I live in Phoenix.  I'm happy to have a 3 day weekend for the 4th of July holiday here in the US, and I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.  I hope you do too, if you celebrate it that is.  To me it certainly means Summer is here!

The theme this month is Animal Prints.  Lately I haven't even planned for what the next challenge would be, I just look at what I've created and on my desk during the last several weeks, and it just seems to be working out for me, which isn't a bad thing.  Not sure why animals are in my thought process, but there are so many different prints to choose from, and I know you will use your creative imagination and wow me and inspire me, as you always do :)

This girl is ready for some fun, don't-cha think? I dug out some scraps of leopard print, and when I say scraps I mean the tiniest of scraps is truly all I had.  She's from Rubbernecker Stamps and her name is Violet and I want her outfit.  Not sure it would be "age appropriate" for me, but who cares? The sentiment is also from Rubbernecker.  Now who is coming over with this list of things to carry out that "plan"?....Inside message....meow

This cute little kitty, kitty makes me smile, and the sentiment can be oh so true, except for me it's my puppy.  It's he and I against the world, just as it should be. The little paw footprints to me is an animal print too, and a special one. I couldn't find this on the website, but it is a stamp set from Close to My Heart,  called Kitty Cuddles.  Inside has four paws.
I loved this layout and made a handful of cards using it. I had to dust off the old Cricut in the process, and I certainly put it to work.  This looked like a cow animal print to me, or maybe a horse?  Anyway, I thought it worked together with the image.  The stamp set is from Unity Stamps and it's called Dallas Girl.  The sentiment on the outside, as well as an awesome one that's on the inside, makes this set a true fave.  Inside message...Struggles are required in order to survive in life because in order to stand up, you have to know what falling down is like....
Don't I know it sista!!!!!

Well that's all I have for you this month.  As always, I hope it's fabulous for you, and that you and yours stay safe and are happy.  I can't wait to see your animal prints, no matter what they are, and I hope you'll show me some fun things from your stash, old or new, it's always welcome here :)
