Calendar Girls ~ Cute and Cuddly


It is the 28th of the month, so I am here to welcome you to another round with the Calendar Girls!

Who are the Calendar Girls? We are a group of bloggers who want to have a place where friendships blossom, creativity abounds, and encouragement prevails! In keeping with that dream, this blog group has been created so we will have a place to interact and enjoy being fellow bloggers.  Linda
is our hostess this month and this is what she wrote for us to follow:  

I would like it to be "Cute and Cuddly". The cuddly being a huggable moose, or a raccoon, or a bear, etc. I really enjoy the Riley stamps and Penny Black hedgehogs, but I'm asking you to pick your favorite furry creature stamp and make a card with any sentiment. I happen to be a hoarder of cute stamps, maybe because my kids share in my stamping addiction. It's always fun to see those little critters come to life on a card.

Can't wait to see what you come up with--Linda!

 

I used two of my favorite Penny Black stamps for this challenge.  I think this chubby little guy sure counts as cute and cuddly--and the inside sentiment says it all:



Image/Sentiment—Penny Black Frolic/Sentiment Dance, Sing, Love

Cardstock—PTI Berry Sorbet; Stampin' Up Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi; Pebbles Love You More-Finley/Emily Patterned Paper

Ink—Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories—Copic Markers; Nesties Labels 15; Tri-colored Bakers Twine; Yellow Button; Pink Round Brads; SU Eyelet Impression Plate

Please check out the blogs of all of the Calendar Girls—there are 10 of us, so it might take you a bit.   I am sure you will enjoy all the cards showing cute and Cuddly! All of the blogs are listed on my left sidebar. Thanks for joining us this month!
