Critters over at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Good morning! We have had gorgeous weather all week and even though it is windy out it is helping to keep those pesky mosquito's away. Last week was an good week, my oldest got to go back to school on Wednesday from his eye injury (we were blessed with no permanent damage, he was happy to be back at school after 11 days of bed rest), our daughter no longer has to go to physio or to the specialist for her knees and she didn't break her finger, my stitches came out, not as expected but they are out and my hubby and my middle son are feeling better.  Yep, things are lookin up I must say.  What else can I update you with....I am on my 3rd week of boot camp and loving it, it is an on-line boot camp and the coaches are awesome.  Enough of my happy blabbing and onto what is really important...4 Crafty Chicks.

Our hostess with the mostess this week is non other than our chick Lori and does she have one fun challenge for us! It is a challenge we have never had before and well Lori you got me really thinking about what stamps to use.  Thank you!

 (any animal)

This card was made for my anniversary that was on Saturday!  The reason why I loved this challenge so much was it got me thinking back to the many animals that I have seen over the years with my husband.  The first time we were in Victoria, BC visiting my sister, Rob and I were lucky enough to have an evening to ourselves.  As we were sitting on a bench by the water, we saw our first raccoon, it was super interesting to watch.  It truly was a great memory.  So for my critter it had to be a raccoons and low and behold it was in my stamp set from Stampin Up . 

All products from Stampin Up: paper: Early Epresso, Whisper White and So Saffron, punches, stamps, wine, embossing folder, paper piercer, daubers and ink.

I would love to enter my card into Make It Mondays Challenge - #141 - Anything Goes.
