CSS Treasure Chest Hop Animal Kingdom

Welcome to the CSS Treasure Chest Hop.   Hopefully you have arrived here from the very talented Betty.  If you get lost along the way you can find the complete list for the hop on StampTV.
Our challenge was to pay tribute to the animal kingdom by creating a project using any Gina K. set with animal images.  Here is a list of some of the possibilities:
  • Bug Me Anytime
  • Cuddles and Hugs Stamp Set
  • Dino-mite
  • Down On The Farm
  • Dream Birds
  • Dream Friends
  • Framed Friends
  • Funny Farm
  • Hang In There

  • Winter Wings

I used Little Critters which is the newest set from Theresa Momber.  I love frogs and I knew I had to use this cutie.




I also used the color challenge from StampTV,  Red Hot, Creme de Menthe and Lemon Drop.  Finally I used the sketch from Card Positioning Systems this week.

You  want to make sure and visit all of the wonderfully talented ladies in the hop tonight and make sure to leave a comment as one lucky commenter will win a stamp set of their choice from Gina K Designs valued up to $24.95.  The winner will be announced on Tuesday 3/1/11 on StampTV.

Now head over to the very creative Carla for you next stop on the hop.
