DCM challenge - animalia

This weeks challenge is set by Mel

I've based my dare on the book by Graeme Base called 'Animalia' (just because that book happened to be sitting near my desk when I realised it was my turn for the dare this week).

So, all you have to do is create a card featuring an animal.

Sadly my mojo has buggered off (again!). I'm feeling down in the dumps today and not very creative but I have managed to scrape a card together. I used papers by Funky Hand, a doggy embossing folder, a scalloped frame, a Sue Dreamer layered sticker and lots of doodles.



















I decided to make a second card as I wasn't that happy with the first. I didn't use any papers with this one. I used woodware stamps to create a background directly on the card. I also used ribbon, coloured cardstock and doodling.

Hi there!
Tell me abt it! I've felt quite miz abt carmaking since staring my job 10 days ago. I used to spend hours toying with ideas in my head and now all those hours are spent in frenetic activity without a moment's peace to think creatively and although I love work something is badly missing in my life -and then when I do sit down to create nothing happens.

Hope you are feeling more in the swing and I really love that "purrfect" card -and it is just that: perrfect.

Love,
SammieJay x
