It's A Skunk!

Whoops an hour or so late with my post this morning, blame Nico! I got up, fed him, cleaned him out then he decided he wanted to play so I thought why not, but only for a bit....a bit turned into nearly two hours oops! Anyhoos here's todays post....

My Time To Craft have a new challenge starting today with a great theme


all on its own, not attached to anything, just a tag!

I had great fun with this challenge, decided I need a tag & card to match to give to the vets who neutered Nico, just to say thank you. 
Well could I find a skunk image I liked, nah looked everywhere! Then Danni said why not try Deviant Art. (some awesome artists on here & most of them let you use their work for free, they just want a mention!)...so I did & I found this cutie. Loved colouring her in & making up my card & tag.

And my card to match. The tag will be going on one of those round tubs of Heroes!

Just love this cutie!

Hi, Shell.

Both of these are adorable -- and I especially love that tag of yours! Somehow a skunk never entered our minds when we came up with this month's W2SB challenge, but this is one cute little creature. How nice of you to pay tribute to your vet and vet staff. :)

Thanks so much for joining our paw-print challenge at Words 2 Scrap By!

Both creations are simply fabulous! The skunk reminds me of the cute ones from Bambi. Clean, simple and fabulously colored. Thank you so much for sharing your incredible work with us at Creative Knockouts.
