My GD card for Charisma Cardz Challenge - Week 8 - Animals

Hello, I have been a bad blogger this week. That's down to two things, firstly my little guinea pig Buttercup (picture on the side bar) has been ill and suffering with an ear infection. We have had numerous trips to the vets for anti inflammatory injections and antibiotics and I really did think that we were going to lose her but thankfully she has made a recovery so I am busy feeding her up at the moment. Secondly I suffered a panic attack on the train home on Monday, have only had one before when I was on holiday and really didn't think I would have another but I did so I haven't really felt up to crafting this week but have been feeling a bit down. I did however manage to get this card done for Charisma Cardz.

The brief this week is "Animals" of my favourite things, I am a huge animal lover.

The sponsor this week is:

Fingertip Crafts is a lovely store both online and in real life! They're currently offering FREE p&p
on all orders over £10! so hop on over there! They've very kindly donated a special stamp which the collection is ONLY avalible at Fingertips! Diminty Mouse 'Celebrations' RRP: £5.99

Wow..what a wonderful stamp, come on guys, get crafting and hop on over to Charisma Cardz and enter this great challenge.

The elements I used for my card are:

Image - Messy Rabbits
Image coloured with Copics
Papers - Dream Street Papers LLC
Flowers - Prima
Brads - Making Memories and Papermania
Butterfly - Sorry have no idea, these were a gift and I have lost the packaging

Oh some fabulous news, my Gorjuss stamps have arrived and I can't wait to have a play, hopefully I can get some crafting done this weekend, I also have my new Whiff of Joy Spring Stamps that have arrived and haven't played with yet....oh how exciting, I can't wait to get started now. I think I feel a pretty paper spending spree coming on this weekend to compliment my lovely new stamps.

I hope you are all having a good week.

Joy xx

Hi Joy, Sorry you've had a tough week, never mind concentrate on using all your new goodies, I'm so cross with myself for not ordering the gorgeouss stamps when the were on pre'order! They are so lovely.

Glad you little one is getting better, my eldest daughter is exactly like you and has guinnies and rabbits, she would have loads more animals space permitting!

Great messy rabbit card!

Happy crafting Jan x
