It's a Zoo here!

While my child is making an absolute mess of my house...I made a card with Zoo Review!! How fitting is that:)?

The challenge from Create with Connie and Mary this week is a color challenge to use So Saffron, Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point.  My mother-in-law,, and I used her Stampin' UP stamp set, Zoo Review, to create fun masculine cards for this challenge.

Check out the other cards made for this challenge at

I used the Snow Burst Embossing Folder, from the upcoming Holiday Mini, for the background because I thought it looked similar to my "sun" image.   The "sun" is just a circle with little pieces of cardstock thinner than 1/4" inch radiating out of the circle and into the notches of the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle.

All products used are Stampin UP!

I just wanted to share what happens when Stampin' UP! delivers a package to my house...

Emma decides the packing paper is a...HUGE SNAKE that's wrapped itself around her...A CAT'S TAIL...or many, many other things.  Emma also commandeers my Stampin' UP boxes for her own use.

Off to go pick up the many, many toys Emma managed to spread throughout the house today,
