All about Pets

Hello and Happy Aloha Friday! It's been sooo HOT here in LA, hoping it gets cooler for the weekend. If not, I'll be indoors with the A/C on. Hey who am I kidding? That sounds like an awesome plan! Hope where you are it's nice and cool. :)
The gals over at Lollipop Crafts have a cute challenge this week. Challenge #3 is all about pets. Create a card with a pet and submit it for a chance to win a cool prize or be nominated in their top 3. For my card I went with some cute animals that are not necessarily pets... PANDAS! I used a Pink Poison aka TGF 2008 stamp set called Panda Friends. It's funny, I work for a company where the Panda is our logo but there has never been an occassion to use this set until now. I really don't know why, it's such a cute set. Will be more attentive to it from now on. haha
So I created this fun in the yard scene with all the pandas and their human friend. There is another friend just outside the gate with some little buddies to come and play with as well. I popped the wagon up with some mounting tape to give it dimension. I drew in the rope pulling the wagon. Adding the fence just gave this scene a cool divider. And what about a cool saying? The sentiment is actually two separate ones from the same set. I thought they went well together for this card.
I hope you get to play along with the challenge. It's always cute to use animals in your cards from time to time. Mahalo for stopping by and here's wishing you a fantastic Aloha Friday!!!
