Happy Sunday, peeps! I am the hostess over at the Paper Players this week, and when I chose this theme a few weeks back, I didn't realize how appropriate it would be...everything is rather zoo-like and crazy these days! I hope you'll overcome it and share your zoo-themed creations with us at the Paper Players!
Of course, Bonanza Buddies has several cute zoo critters in it, so no surprise that I chose that set for my card today! Here we go; you'd better put on your shades, it's bright:
I had been perusing some of the many, many 12x12 papers in my stash, and came up with a couple in bright, cheerful colors, so that was my starting point! Then I stamped my little koala in Gray Granite:
My lion in Grapefruit Grove and Pumpkin Pie:
And my toucan in black, with a Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo beak:
A sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, stamped in Granny Apple Green, coordinated with the banner!
And my friend Michele challenged me to use the CAS(E) This Sketch this week:
which I did! However, I think it is a little too busy to be considered clean and simple, so I made this one as well, using some retired DSP and a giraffe image from 100 Proof Press:
I need a few masculine birthday cards this month, so this will be one of them! I stamped the giraffe in Cajun Craze, colored him a wee bit with a blender pen, then fussy-cut him out and popped him up:
I hope you'll stop by the Paper Players blog and see the fun zoo creations the team has made! I can't wait to see how you'll interpret my theme challenge this week as well! Thanks for popping in today!
Somehow this doesn't look too comfortable, but they all seem to be enjoying a comfy moment on the couch!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
