On the wild side

Hi you all! The lovely weather has left us, and we are once again back to dismal grey, cold and rainy days! 

Today is the begin of a new challenge over at Try It On Tuesday, with the theme of 'On the Wild Side'.  The challenges are all 'anything goes', so as long as you stick to the theme to use birds or animals, you can make whatever you want. There is plenty of time for your entry, as the challenges all run 2 weeks.

I made a card, with a very wild looking ocelot, who looks like she has a long party night behind her!  It is an easel card.



The stopper is made of a little envelope, which would hide a voucher or some money, and the small card on top can be opened to write a greeting.



Here's wishing you all a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  8. Love your ocelot, this reminds me of my grandmother who to her shame had an Ocelot coat which was her pride and joy. The glasses really made me laugh Valerie you have such a wicked sense of humour.

  14. Oh menno Valerie, wenn ich hier scrolle denk ich glatt ich war monatelang krank!
    Du hast so geniale Sachen gemacht inzwischen!

    Ich bin geplättet!

    Mir geht´s noch immer bescheiden mit meiner doofen Verkühlung... naja frau darf nicht älter werden...
    früher hat mir so was nichts ausgemacht... aber inzwischen ...
    sei lieb gegrüßt!
