I recently picked up a copy of the March/April Paper Crafter's magazine. I saw a card in the Lovely As a Tree section and fell in love. I had to try it. However, I also had this Hippo Birdie stamp that I bought for $1 at Michael's and wanted to include it. This is the how the merge worked out.
For this fun challenges -
Pollycraft Challenge has ANYTHING GOES! Wow, there will be a lot of entries, I'm sure.
Charisma Cardz and
Magical Crafts are both animal themes.
Polka Doodles has a birthday theme. They also have amazing DT work this week! Just so impressive.
