AYSI256 My Favorite Animal Is.....

Hi peeps!  Friday means another As You See It Challenge!  What a fun one this is: 

But it's a definitely challenge for sure....what is my favorite animal?  Dog?  Cat?  Bunny?  I like them all!  Even a mouse if it's not in the house!  My most recent pet was Pumpkin our cat, but she has been gone for many years! I really wanted to use some of this ADORABLE new Sweet Stockings DSP.  It's bound to make you grin!  The front of my card is pretty simple:

The most challenging part was fussy-cutting this little mousie:

But I had to kick up the inside just a notch with this little kitty from Sweet Little Stockings:

Seriously, you could practically create all your Christmas cards with this one bundle.  Just look at that cute stocking....and that itty bitty teeny weeny HOLLY and BERRY!  Just a warning that those dies are very small, so pay attention when using bounce off your Big Shot and you'll be searching your craft area forever!  But aren't they cute?!  I colored in Miss Kitty with some Blends and diecut her stocking from some of the same DSP; the berries are Merry Merlot and the holly is Evening Evergreen!

I can't wait to see what favorite animals our stamping friends have!  Be sure to share it with us at As You See It, and check out what the other designers' favorites are too!  Thanks for popping in today! And here is an old, old picture of Pumpkin, relaxing in our bathroom sink!


I also found two more birthday cards hiding at the bottom of my pile....the first ones I got!  This one is from Doris....too funny:

And this sweet vintage slimline is from Colleen:

Such a fun array of cards!  Thanks, everyone!  So happy you popped in today!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Darling dsp for your darling card, LeAnne!! I'd choose a kitty for sure! Love your little Pumpkin in the sink - cooling off, would be my guess!

Love your card! I have this DSP sitting on my desk and was thinking of doing something very similar! Absolutely love this suite! Pumpkin in the sink = Priceless!

For the small red berries on the greenery (they are tiny):
Put a Post-It Note over the die, run it through your die cutting machine. The die will stick to the Post-It Note.

Then, lift the die and the berries will stick to the Post-It Note! I used my ‘take your pick’ tool to pick up the berries and added them to the greenery with liquid glue. Makes your Christmas card assembly so much easier!

I got this tip from Sharon Armstrong's blog!!

I don't know what I'm most excited about LeAnne - the adorable golden all mixed up with the Christmas lights, or your precious Pumpkin fitting perfectly in the bathroom sink! Vicky x
