#217 All Creatures Great and Small

I hope you are still with us! I completely forgot to post the winner post at the end of July which would have said how long we were going on a break for. Anyhow, hope everyone has had a lovely Summer. We have had a scorcher in the UK, but it seems that Autumn is rapidly on it’s way. So to today’s challenge ….

Marg is hosting today's challenge, All Creatures Great and Small. As it sounds anything in the animal or insect kingdom is acceptable. Please not just a tiny butterfly on the corner of a card though. We would like your 'creature' to be the focal point of your creation.

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the All Creatures Great and Small theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT


For this Challenge I have created this super cute Amigurumi rabbit. Actually, this is the very first Amigurumi I have ever made and I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out. The parts were crocheted using a free pattern I found on the net, and then sewn together. I have stuffed it with fibre fill and then added the embroidery, etc. Her name is Blossom. If you would like more details, please visit my blog. Have a fabulous day!


My card was made using kraft card for a change, and a Woodware stamp. The image was coloured using promarkers.


For this, I've used a Pretty Quick stamp, and coloured the result with Spectrum Noir pencils.


Hi all, I've made this card for a friend who was moving house. I used a combination of decorative papers and a Woodware stamp then cut out the pieces and built it up like a collage. The background was coloured using Distress Oxide ink and the card was completed with the sentiment and gems.


I made this card for a friend. I fell in love with this cute stamp set by Gerda Steiner. My card was coloured with Copics, Posca Pens, Pencil Crayon, Distress Ink and Diamond Glaze. It was fun piling the animals in the jeep.


I used a House Mouse Designs decoupage sheet cut down so that it would fit inside a Hunkydory die cut frame.


I have used a Wild Rose Studio Stamp , coloured with promarkers and some glitter sparkles


I used a digital stamp titled "Josie in a Hat", coloured her with Prismacolor Markers. added a flower and leaves plus a border die cut.


My card was made for a friend using a fabulous Whipper Snapper dog stamp and an embossing folder. The extra stamped embellishments are from a rather fun Woodware stamp set.

My card focuses on Karen (Kassa) Hayselden's fabulous stamp Cecil The Cow. With a background from Hero Arts Studio Calico stamp. Please see my blog for details
