Fuzzy Wuzzy was a ....lion?

Hi there! Well, I promised I would be back and here I am with a little bit of cuteness for The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenges mid month reminder.

This month at The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenges we have a fantastic sketch to play with by our gorgeous Ingrid and we have the awesome sponsorship of Lili of the Valley stamps. We are very excited about that. I only had one LOTV animal stamp which I used for our main post so for our mid month reminder I have inked up the cutie pie Lion stamp from Magnolia instead. I have masked him in front of the Tip leaves, also by Magnolia. I'm not a big fan of masking, lol. I always end up with wonky scenes :) so I generally cut out my images instead. Yes, I know, I'm lazy :) I should get out my stamp a ma jig shouldn't I?  Well... I do love the result this time so I will just have to do that in the future.


The fun papers are MME Fine and Dandy "True Blue", perfect for this particular stamp I think. The sentiment is also Magnolia and the little zig zag edge on the blue cardstock is a new Magnolia doo hickey die.  Umm... what else did I want to tell you .... Oh! I've stamped the images in Memento Rich Cocoa instead of Tuxedo Black. Makes for a nice little change for an animal doesn't it? Normally I only do that if I want to make a more vintagey style card.

I also want to enter this card into these challenges:

So thanks for stopping by. We would love you to come and enter The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenges this month, so please check out the terrific sketch, I know I'll be using it again - thanks so much Ingrid!

And have a great weekend everyone!

  28. What a GREAT card, such vivid colors. Do you use a regular sewing machine to sew on paper? Does it ruin your needle? I've always wanted to try it. Thanks for sharing this beautiful card.
