Animals or people?

Now there's a question...answers please at

where we would love to see your cards featuring People or Animals
(don't forget to tell us WHY?)

My blogging buddies will know that I love animals but aside from that I struggle hugely with colouring hair on people so I find fur is so much easier to colour!! It's also really nice to send a card showing a particular type or breed of animal that you know will strike a chord with the recipient and that's what I did with my card.

My lovely friend and Cutie Pie DT Boss, Lisa, had a Birthday last week and this was the card I sent her featuring a Westie that, I hope, bears a resemblance to her own little dog Nippy ( EDIT I was assured in her email that it does indeed look like her little chap!!). I used a shaped card covered in paper, die cut a
 co-ordinating frame and butterflies and a magazine freebie sentiment stamp.

Gorgeous Bright card Sarah! So cute and love the bright butterflies added!
I absolutely love all animals too but I really enjoy colouring people as you can do their clothes in so many different combos which I have great fun doing :-)

Hope you're having a great week!
