A "Tucan" of my love

I just love this image from The Paper Shelter  he looks like he is pondering something, I wonder what?
I decided to enter this card into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge where they have a sketch to follow. There are some stunning cards by the DT, awsome colouring on show.
This is another card for the Dog Rescue Centre, I am building up quite a few cards now, I will have to make a pretty box for them to nest in.

Bunny Friends

How cute a bunny cuddling a little softy bunny. This digi was part of the bundle in the Help For Katie fundraiser. I have made this card as part of my card collection for the Dog Rescue Centre, I think they will all be animal themed. The fresh green papers are so "Spring" can't wait for the flowers to pop up in my garden.
I am entering this card into the Papertake Weekly challenge where there is a sketch to follow this week.

"The cockatoo is watching you"

Check out this fab new digi stamp from The Paper Shelter. Is he the Cockatoo version of Columbo? LOL
This image is fab for a mans card and I suppose you could add an array of witty sentiments, i'm not too good at verses or sentiments so it took me ages to come up with something remotely witty, my brain just goes to sleep ha ha ...
Anyway this is part of a charity lot that I am making for the local animal rescue centre where I got my dog Harvey from. They are having a fete soon so thought they could add a set of hand made cards to the stall.

I am going to enter this card into My Time To Craft Challenge which is Hats

And Passion For Promarkers - One For The Boys
