Three Clover's Thursday Challenge #10 - It's a Zoo!

Week 1o over at Kerry's 3 Clover's Thursday Challenge! Where has the time gone? The theme this week...It's a Zoo Around Here or anything with animals. I had this darling Penny Black stamp I have been waiting to use and when I got to thinking about it...I realized it hasn't been that long since I have been to a children's party...and we all know what a ZOO those parties can be...so I decided this was a perfect fit!

I used this PB stamp along with some of my new cupcake DP by Basic Grey. I love when all the DP is coordinated for you...feels a little like cheatin' but hey...it saves the brain power! The sketch layout is from this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

The present and balloon are added on with dimensionals and then I added a tag sentiment, a little ribbon, and a few brads.

Come on over to Kerry's place for a trip to the Zoo!

And Oh...if you haven't noticed my new blog wallpaper...I changed it to cupcakes...This weekend I will post some dandy BLOG candy in celebration of my 1 year blogoversary and 30,000 hit!! Woo Hoo...don't forget to check back and see what I have been collecting up for you!

Oh, Sue, this card is too cute! I love the image - wish you could zap it to me because I have to go make my grandson's birthday card and this would be so perfect. I even have the DP already. Isn't that paper fun!! I was thinking of incorporating it into his card. You're coming up on one year - that's fantastic. I've got 4 months to go for mine. Anyway, you made an adorable card! LOVE it!
