A Tail or Two...

I'm late, still trying to catch my tail...soooooooo Things with Tails is this week's theme chosen by the fabulous Donna at Cupcake Craft Challenges... I've gone for two tails (although you can't actually see them) on my card! The cute image is one I've had for a long time from Di's Digi Downloads (I believe this is no longer available which is a shame). It's coloured with Promarkers, I do love how these are so easy to match up to my papers, which incidentally are from Stampin' Up. The little flowers are punched using my Nellie Snellen punches. I'm entering my card into the challenges at:

Stamp Something - June Digi Day
Critter Sketch Challenge Blog - Let's Get Crafty (My card base is made from kraft card)

This week our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp who is giving away a $20 gift certificate to one lucky random winner and our new monthly sponsor is Little Claire's Designs, where if you enter one of our challenges this month you could win a lovely 6 x 6 paper pad and two stamps! And if you need more inspiration, the girls at Cupcake have come up trumps again, pop over to the challenge blog and check out the lovely work they've done!

Well that's it from me today, Happy Crafting!

Coucou Shelly ! J'aime beaucoup les couleurs de ta carte, la colorisation est parfaite, et j'adore ce petit tampon tout mignon !
Ici, il fait frais mais nous avons eu peu de pluie, j'ai hâte que la chaleur revienne ! :-)
Bisous, bon week-end !
