A thing about animals .....

When I was little, I desperately wanted to be a vet.  Whether it had anything to do with James Herriott, or because I just loved animals I'm not sure.  And then I found out where vets have to stick their hands, and I rapidly changed my mind.

However, it has not cured my total, complete and utter love of animals (with one or two small exceptions) so this months Penny Black And More At Allsorts Challenge is perfectly suited - All Creatures Great And Small.  The challenge has now been opened up to allow entries using stamps other than Penny Black so I am taking full advantage of that with my second entry

Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped ImageHigh Hopes - Couples Cruise
Colouring MediumTim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers)
SentimentHero Arts
PapersDCWV Spring Stack
ExtrasGems from stash

And here is a close up of the Ark

I'm allowed one more entry this month, so best I make it a Penny Black one!  Off to find a suitable stamp.

Hugs, Sxx
