Are you up to the challenge?

Today is Designer Challenge day with My Creative Time. Design Team Member, Glorajean has challenged us -- and that includes you! -- to make a set of four 3x3 cards. And if that isn't enough of a challenge for you, use an animal theme and add critters! What a fun challenge!  I really enjoyed using some of my super oldie moldie Quickutz farm animal dies for this challenge. Let's go see how it turned out.....

Didn't these turn out so cute. The papers were so easy to work with -- all the patterns and extras are part of the pattern. All I added were the animals, their mud, grass and scratch, and the sentiment tags.

I even used the leftover paper to adorn the envelopes. left is the back; right is the front with cute tab for adding a name.

The sentiments are from the newest release, You're Brilliant.

Here are the cards and envelopes bundled with twine. I thought the "I have an idea" sentiment was the perfect for lead-in to each of the card sentiments in the set. This challenge was so much fun. I hope you'll join us and link up your project at My Creative Time. You could be a winner of delicious My Creative Time yummyness!!!
