Okay, with all the necessities out of the way let's get started?? You should have arrived here from the talented, Donna Bowman's blog but if not that's not a problem because you can head on over to the DeNami blog for the full list of participants. 

 

I had such a hard time picking a fuzzy little friend...there are just too many cuties to choose from!!! in the end I decided to use a couple of new images (spring 2014 release) and a older image that's a favorite of mine.

For my first card I have to credit my yellow lab, Moe. I was taking a picture of something and he photo bombed me, lol! What a little ham he is, he actually will pose for pictures!! What's cuter than being photo bombed by my dog...being photo bombed by a chickie!!! 
I used a little photo frame from 3 Twenty Crafts and built a little scene using a few older stamps and 3 brand new ones. Have you ever heard of Fluff? It's a great little medium that you can add to critters (and other things like chickies&  flowers) to give them a little fuzzy texture. Here's a close up of my little beaver...
See how he's a "fuzzy"? I simply colored him in with my quickie glue pen then sprinkled on some Fluff (both can be found at DeNami) then patted it down a little with my finger to get it stuck in the glue fairly well then tap off the excess. It's pretty much the same as using glitter only I pat it a little to make sure the Fluff goes into the glue...easy peasy!!

Stamps used: 

For my next card I wanted to show you that just because you use a little animal that you don't necessarily have to make something "cutsie". 

I just love a grey & yellow color palette and couldn't resist using it for this card. This card was super fast to create and the layout can be used for any occasion with some of DeNami's larger stamps that have the bigger scenes like the brand new Irish Chickie scene or the darling Woodland Friends scene.

Stamps Used:

Well that's it for me and it's time for you to visit with Tammy Hobbs!! I can't wait to see what she has for us...her talent knows no bounds!!! Don't forget to leave comments along the way for your chance to win a DeNami gift certificate!!
