Challenge 22 - Favorite Animal


Today over at the Can You Digi It? blog is a fun new challenge. The challenge is to create a project with your Favorite Animal.

My project is a CAS card. Partly because lately I've been feeling sort of nostalgic
for the Polaroid pictures of my youth. I guess that sort of dates me but I'm OK with that.

The other is that my hand is badly sprained. It's in a splint and everything. It's been
that way for almost a week. One of my sweet dogs, who is the most hyper and
energetic of my dogs got a little to rambunctious when I was giving her a bath.

DH says I should let my hand rest but it's kinda tough as I have house work and crafting to do. Right now my coloring will be mainly done on Paint.net

I can still do the rest of the creating with a little help from my DH. He's doing the sentiment stamping because I can't apply enough pressure to do it on my own.

Here's my CAS card with my favorite animal,
after dogs, the penguin. They're standing
in the snow and wanted to send a
Happy Birthday message.
Stamps: CYDI Betty Edwards Hello, Penguin
Ink: CTMH Pacifica
Accessories: SU! Sizzix Framelits Bitty Banners, CTMH Round Sponge

Please stop by the Can You Digi It? blog to see the wonderful DT's projects.

Happy Crafting,


  1. Your penguins are so very cute as is your card!! I hope your wrist improves soon!!

  2. Mary Ellen these penguins are so cute! I hadn't even noticed them in the store, but now I want them! I love the birthday banner too. How fun that your DH helped you with the sentiment. Hope that hand gets better quick! Wonderful card. Hugz!

  3. Wow, I can't wait to see your creations after your wrist heals, Mary Ellen! This turned out super sweet. It is somewhat reminiscent of a Polaroid.

  4. Sorry to hear you are injured Mary Ellen :( Hope your wrist feels better soon. I think it is so sweet of your husband to assist in your stamping!
