Challenge No. 23 - Animals

This week's challenge is sponsored by my good friend, Claire, from Hope Jacare.  Claire kindly let us have images for our cards and as you can see there is a great variety in her catalogue.  If you haven't visited Hope Jacare before, you really should.  I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Our theme this time is Animals which should give plenty of scope.  The prize available to the random winner is a Rubber Stamp from Claire's first release,

Isn't it wonderful?  I think so and you'll find an example in our DT creations.

But there's more!  I have a fab Robin image to give away as well.  This will be emailed to anyone who enters a card in the challenge and leaves a comment requesting it.  Please remember to leave your email in the linky tool so that I can send it out.  Here's a preview of the image and again you'll find examples in our DT cards.

Now that's all done and dusted, here are the examples from the Design Team to give you some ideas:


I always love seeing the different ideas the Design Team come up with.  Now for some rules:

1. The card must be for a man/boy.
2. You need to follow the theme/sketch that is set.
