Gong Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge #10

It has been a bit of time since I have been on my computer. Last week I was busy getting everything ready for the kids in class to make something special for their moms on Mother's Day. They made really cute sunflowers with their faces in the center of the flowers. They loved making them but it was a lot of prep work for me and one on one I showed them how to stamp on the flowers. I was TIRED and happy by Friday afternoon. I'll try to show a picture of the flowers tomorrow.
Today is Tuesday and that means another great challenge at

This week the challenge #10 is a really fun one, it is animals. Any kind of animal you like and of course you need to use Basic Grey paper on your creation! Doesn't this sound like fun, we would love to have you come and play with us.

If you need a little inspiration check out what the other DTs have created this week

Be sure to stop by and give these creative ladies some love....

I haven't used this High Hopes stamp, Brutus, in so long but decided he was perfect for this challenge. I also decided to change up some of the BG DP I used by stamping little paws all around the edge of it to go with the little paws in the other new BG paper, with an animal theme, I used on this card.

Here are some other fantastic challenges that fit my card this week

High Hopes Challenge 75-This challenge is a great sketch this week. This is also my first time playing along with them.

Pile It On Challenge #18-This week the challenge is cute and cuddly. How much cuter or cuddly could a puppy be?

What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails
And puppy-dogs' tails,
That's what little boys are made of.

Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #22-This challenge was show us your fancy edge. I used my scalloped edge punch then hand punched the circled on each scallop to change it up a bit!

KL SNS Challenge #29-This challenge this week is a recipe "Easy as 123" 1 type of ribbon, 2 designer papers, and 3 embellishments. I used this cool 2 color ribbon, 2 pieces of BG DP(I stamped little paws on the mustard piece), and my embellishments are the brads I made and 2 small and 2 large flowers to make up the 2 flowers I used.

Lexi's Creations Challenge 13-This challenge is to use an animal on your card. I just love to color animals so I use them a lot on my cards.
