Life Is A Zoo!



I don't know why, but I love making Christmas cards. I think it might be the colors of Christmas that seem so bright and pretty. This cute little image is a Sugar Nellie  and I love it. I think I might have gone a little overboard on my 'glitter', but it was fun having all that sparkle flying about! I also used some fun flock...not so fun having it fly about as it makes me sniff and sneeze. My snowflakes are also covered with glitter, except for the one inside the spellbinders frame and it is iridescent. My sentiment is from LOTV and I love these sentiments. I used a red and glitter spica pen to add a bit of bling to the sentiment. I added some ribbon...and speaking of ribbon our sponsor for this challenge is
they have some yummy ribbons! Our Challenge this time at ABC is "Z" (I can't believe we have gone through the alphabet already!) ...back to"Z" for zoo! We want to see animals on your cards...not butterflies or bugs.....animals. I can't wait to see what you come up with! Also, don't forget the DT call for ABC....it is a great team to be a part of and I know you will love the fun challenges. Go to ABC's bolg and enter an "Anything Goes" card....blessings to you!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
 
My Song: If I Could Talk to The Animals
If I could talk to the animals, just imagine it,
Chattin' with a chimp in chimpanzee,
Imagine talking to a tiger, chatting with a cheetah,
What a neat achievement it would be!
If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages,
Maybe Take an animal degree,
I'd study elephant and eagle, buffalo and beagle,
Alligator, guinea pig, and flea!

Such a pretty card and not to worry about the glitter... it is my opinion that you can NEVER have too much glitter or sparkle! That is such a cute idea to 'frame' the image in sparkles. Fabulous colouring skills and I love those LOTV sentiments. I need to make more Christmas cards so I can use them more.

Wow - what a beautiful card! LOVE all the glitter (you can never have enough glitter!!). I love making Christmas cards too.

I really like the code on the top RHS of your blog that you live by. It is so pertinent to my situation caring for a sick family member. So glad I stopped by to read it :-)

God bless you Patty Sue!
