Cute Critters for MAWTT

Good morning. Brrrrrrrr there's a real chill to the air here in Gloucestershire today so what better excuse than to stay in and keep warm and have a lovely play in my little haven :o)
We have a fab new challenge for you today over at

and this week the very lovely Sue has picked theme


Our sponsor this week is
and they are very kindly offering 1 lucky winner $10 to spend in their online store.
The DT got some images to play with - both outline and pre-coloured. I chose this little cutie in the outline version and coloured him with PM's. 

I went for a 'Springtime' feel for this card - to help brighten things up a bit and teamed the delicately coloured image with some zingy Design Papers by WRMK from a freebie pad with SC&P magazine.
I added a teeny touch of Glossy Accents to his eyes and a smidgen of Stickles to the flower centre.

The flower is made from two shades of felt and Spellbinders die with a pearl brad added to the centre.
The leaves are a Magnolia die.

This also used:
Spellbinders - Deckle Edge Rectangles & Plain Rectangles and Fleur De Lis Pendant
Martha Stewart - Cherish Border Punch
Ribbon from stash
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards

Please check out the fab inspiration from my lovely DT buddies and our GDT over on the 

Hope you can join us this week - I can't wait to see all you gorgeous projects.

Digi My World - Birthday
Anything Goes - Bingo (Make own flowers, Free Choice & Bling)
Celebrate the Occasion - Anything Goes Birthday
