Animal Crackers Challenge

Today is a new challenge at 
and our lovely hostess is Terri and she has chosen the theme of
"Animal Crackers".

A super fun and EASY challenge as I am sure you all
have some sort of an animal stamp or die!

A few months back when it still was cold and 
'wintery'  here in Michigan,
I was feeling sorry for myself so went on a shopping spree.
For some reason I focused on lions, tigers, and leopards
and bought several cute stamps featuring these critters!

Out of my purchases I chose to use this adorable leopard (I call him Leo)
stamp from the  My Favorite Things Lovable Leopards stamp set.
There are 3 different leopards in this set,
plus numerous other stamps and sentiments!


I kept the card pretty simple, stamping him on a stitched rectangle
then coloring with Copics.
I added another stitched rectangle layer under him
and a paper I had won from a challenge a year or so ago!


I hope you like him as I think he is just the cutest!
Geez, how I would love to put in a HUGE order to MFT as they 
have the cutest stamps!!

So, why not head on over the The Sisterhood and see all the fun
animals my 'sistahs' have created and join in with us!!

Awe ... Leo is SO adorable!! Great coloring and design! I'm feeling sorry for myself these days with being sick and all ... maybe a shopping spree would lift my spirits! LOL

Okay, I love this so much I can hardly stand it. The sentiment made me laugh out loud. So CUTE! Love how you colored it and the paper is perfect. You know I have a thing for cute stamps, dang it. I tend to shop more in the winter and get myself in a pickle with way more stuff than I can use. I want to see all your lions, tigers, and leopards! Two of my "new" Laurel Burch stamps are jungle critters. Fun!

Oh. My. Goodness. Soooooo CUTE! I love him, great design and layout too! (I just bought a little box of Animal Crackers, remember them? I am sad that they no longer have that little string handle though, booooo)

Little Leo is very happy to be inked up and we are so glad you shared him with us! So cute!! I don't have near enough cutie animal stamps - maybe a shopping spree can cure that for me, too! LOL (Are you enjoying the MI heat now, Diane? I'm actually wanting it to cool down after the weather we had today!)
