Foxy Birthday...MUSE Challenge #123, TIME OUT Challenge 35~Nature, with the Optional Twist of Animals, Seize the Birthday~Anything Goes

Hello!

I'm jumping in with a quick post today, before heading to a bike race, where my only duty is to be a 'fan of cycling'! What a treat not to traipse along with clipboard and stopwatch in hand, not to have to worry about who's being lapped, not to have to try to catch jersey numbers as riders zip across the finish. All I need do: watch, cheer, applaud...simple stuff.  Yayyyy...

Over at Muse Challenge #123, talented and brilliant, Joan Bardee (seriously, she is a 'must follow' for her amazing cards and oh-so-engaging posts!) has tempted us with this sweet cherries number:


Drawing colours, image placement and design from her card, and pairing it with TIME OUT Challenge #35~Nature with the Optional Twist of Animals, here's what happened...


Tee hee...isn't that little fox a cutie?  He's perched atop a panel inked with my new MFT Linen background stamp, a die cut row of PS hearts, and a sentiment banner from Clearly Besotted.

NOTE: So very honoured and delighted to be a Top 3 Featured Member at MUSE. THANK YOU!!

I'm also joining the gallery at:
Seize the Birthday~Anything Goes



Wishing you a wonderful Sunday and I'm out the door...

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,
