SSIC Animals

Today is Mother's Day and I would like to take the opprtunity to wish all of the Mum's/Mom's a very Happy Mother's Day!

 This weeks Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge is brought to us by Peggysue, who has chosen:

Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive.  Genesis 6:20
Peggysue has challenged us to use any type of animal, bird or bug in your creation.
I love this image from Crafty Secrets (thanks to a generous friend) and the Spellbinders Labels Eight and Fleur de Lis Square Nestabilities.  All dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.

The beautiful Rose Creations Shapeabilities by Spellbinders Paper Arts

and the divine bling from Want2Scrap Swirls, Maxxi Girl Rhinestones - Silver Self-Adhesive
