TPE- #24 Animals

Hi Everyone!! I have been a bit under the weather the past week and a half, but feeling a bit better now!! So sorry for the delay in today's The Pink Elephant post...I was lucky to get TPE's post up as I have had blogger problems too!!

This week at The Pink Elephant the theme is:


Which means make any project you want using an Animal or Animals!

Our Wonderful sponsor this week is the one and only,

Dustin Pike
You can win some of his awesome designs simply by joining TPE challenge this week!!!

Here are my cards:

SU! card Stock: Ballet Blue, Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Pixie Pink, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White and Buckaroo Blue, Soft Sky
Stamps: Dustin Pike Digi Stamps
I colored with:
SU! Marvelous Markers, SU! Ink Pad and Blender pen
I Added:
SU! Kiwi Kiss Corduroy Brads, SU! Kiwi Kiss Ribbon and Liquid Applique

I also have the cupcake digi, but noticed that several of the other design team members chose that one too so I used "SUPER DRAGON"

Landon absolutely loved this image and fully believes that Dustin designed it just for him.
He made is very own card, all by himself from start to finish with only a few questions!! I was surprised at how he knew what all my supplies were used for & how to use them...I guess my little ones watch me closer than I thought.

Here is his card.

He HAD to photograph the card himself, so I let him....
Then, He directed the rest of the "photo shoot". He said, "Mommy, take one of me getting excited about my card" "Ok, good", he said...
"Now take one with my scooter and me and my card."
Then, when the "photo shoot" was over and I had re-entered the house...I looked back out onto the porch and saw this!! Too sweet!!

He saw me and said, "Mommy, I love my card. I am gonna put it by my bed."
And up the stairs he went!!
