#101 Cute and Furry

I’m really sorry about last time’s challenge. I realise when some of you came along there was no linky to start with, but my pc died and one of my team very kindly stepped in to make the post after my Daughter had emailed her. Thank you Josephine! Hopefully we are back to normal now.
Welcome to our latest challenge, hosted by Jackie, who has chosen the theme 'Cute and Furry'
Jackie would like to see the main focal point of your creation be something that is cute and furry. It can be a digi stamp, stamp, photographic image, but must have fur and be cute.

PLEASE NOTE THE SORT OF CUTE AND FURRY WE MEAN IS AN ANIMAL OF SOME DESCRIPTION, (YES WE ARE CALLING A TEDDY BEAR AN ANIMAL) NOT THE HEM OF A CLOAK, OR AN OUTFIT A BABY IS DRESSED IN. I KNOW WE DIDN'T SAY SO SPECIFICALLY IN THE DESCRIPTION ABOVE BUT ALL OF THE DESIGN TEAM HAVE USED AN ANIMAL ON THEIR PROJECTS SO WE THOUGHT IT WAS OBVIOUS
 
Please ensure the main focal point of your creation is both cute and has fur to qualify for a winner or Top 5 slot. 

PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE RULES BEFORE ADDING YOUR CREATION AND CHECK IT MEETS THE CRITERIA AS LAID OUT ABOVE - ANY ENTRY NOT COMPLYING WILL UNFORTUNATELY BE REMOVED 

We are sponsored by
DI'S DIGISTAMPS
with a $10 GIFT VOUCHER
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.

I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.


This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art.


Long may it continue!

THE STAMPMAN
 We are kindly sponsored for this challenge by The Stampman (and Lady of course!) who are ofering the winner a £10 voucher for their store, you can spend this online, in the shop or if you're lucky enough to see them at a show!  They have a ton of items in store, enough to tickle any crafty taste bud. 

Here is how the team interpreted the challenge:-

Jackie
I love this little pup, who comes from the Crafters Companion Moreheads cd range.  I also used some Docrafts background papers and embellishments from my stash.

Yvonne
I used a popcorn the Bear image from a Crafters Companion CD for this card.

Julie
I used this cute Fox by Oak Pond Creations and stamped around the border with Lavinia Stamps to look like he is resting in a little hidey hole.

Lin
I created my card with a Crafters Companion CDRom, called Party Paws, a couple of footprints and the sentiment created in my graphics program. 

Vania
 
I used  image with small cute girl who's reminds me a little bit  on Vinetu and one furry kitty :)

For my card I have used a stamp from the Crafters Companion Mulberry Wood collection which I have coloured with my ProMarkers. My papers are from the Dovecraft "Tea House" pack.

 
I've done something a bit different and created a baby card using faux fur.  The teddy bear shape is simply cut from the fabric with the addition of googly eyes and a felt nose.  A pretty bow and brad finish it off.

ccm
I used a cute Penny Black image for my card.

'Cute and Furry' isn't something I do a lot of, but I finally came up with this image. I coloured it with Coloursoft pencils and edged with Distress Ink. The background is stamped using my newest acquisition - some fabulous background stamps from Inky Doodles!

 
I've used a very cute Fizzy Moon stamp coloured in with ProMarkers. The background is white card embossed with a Forever Friends embossing folder and then inked over with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The '65' is cut with a Sizzix die and mounted on acetate to make it 'float'. Stickles, pearls, silver ribbon and a large bow complete the card.

Cindy
Simple card made using Anna Marie Designs spotty card and stamps by Trimcraft.

Elaine
I have used  crafters companion  decoupage.  The flowers are made from flower soft.  The corner is a Marianne design die and the sentiment stamp is a LOTV.

Marie
Time to dig out the lovely looking LOTV stamps and especially James the Bear as he is cute and furry. ;) I love this image as it reminds me of how my boys look when they are about to decorate our tree at Christmas. He is coloured with my normal letraset family and the dp's are from Dove Craft. Decorations from WOC.

Rebecca
For my card I've used this very cute (and furry) giraffe from Clearly Besotted, simply coloured with Promarkers.

Carole
My 'Cute and Furry' card is based around the gorgeous 'Parker the Puppy' digi image from Scrapping Memories, coloured with my Promarkers.

Feebsy
My "Cute and Furry" card was created using Lindsay Mason's "Everyday Cat Purrfect" stamp set and a pawprint stamp all stamped with Onyx Black Versafine ink.

  5. I had to chuckle about your statement in red - you and I know it is obvious but I know from experience that it isn't haha, and some folks pick up challenges from link up sites and just read the title (oh boy we have had to come up with some long titles). Love the DT examples, hope my cat is cute and furry enough!

    1. Giggling at this too. Sadly, so many people don't want to 'play the game fairly'. I will have to pop along and get one of your LONG titles and see if I can still get it wrong, lol, just for a laugh you understand.

      Sorry this has taken me so long to reply, have been too busy to check the comments on here
