Animals at FSC

It is time for a new challenge at FSC, gosh the months all of a sudden seem to be flying by so quickly.

This month our challenge is all about ANIMALS, a theme picked by Carola.

For my inspiration I’ve gone for a slow moving tortoise. At the moment I’m ‘farm-sitting’ in one of the most beautiful and relaxing parts of Australia – Halls Gap. Surrounded by the most glorious views and beautiful weather. After  only a few days I went into slow mode – so for this challenge I chose a slow moving animal.

This gorgeous tortoise is called Vacation from Carabelle Studio and sums up how I am feeling at the moment perfectly. The leaves are from the Four Seasons and Twiggy Leaves stamp sets from Rubber Dance. The background is Distress Oxides and the turtle has been coloured with water colour pencils.

It was interesting when I was packing to come here – all my clothes and personal stuff fitted on the front seat of my car easily … and my craft stuff just fitted into the rest of the car. Does anyone else travel this way?

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different takes on this theme. Please pop on over and check out their awesome creativity, be inspired and maybe join in the fun.

Ink Art Designs is our sponsor this month and has a gorgeous stamp set to give away to one lucky winner chosen by random org.

We also have a top 3 chosen by the design team and Saturday Spotlights where we showcase inspirational makes. And the icing on the cake is that each month we will be having a guest designer chosen from the entries.

I would like to enter this into the Craft Stamper Take It, Make It Challenge (April) – Anything Goes

Happy Stamping!

    Oh Dot what a wonderful card, even the colours are full of holiday spirit. Fabulous tortoise and great use of those stamps in the background. So glad it’s Sunday as it’s really given me that chilled out feel.
    I did giggle about the packing side of things, my holiday craft supplies have their own suitcase hee hee!!
    Wishing you creativity & many more sunny days ahead Tracey xx

    He’s such a fabulous tortoise Dot and he looks as if he belongs with you on the farm with his foliage background.
    Holidays usually involve a flight for me, so I don’t get to take much in the crafting supplies.
    Enjoy your farm sitting, it sounds very relaxing
