Day 12 – Animal Expedition

 

Animal-Expedition-1---CloseG’Day Stampers,

Sorry I missed yesterday – life just goes that way sometimes.

So, today I am sharing with you the 2nd card using the fun Animal Expedition DSP whichAnimal Expedition - 19.25 is part of the “Buy 3, Get 1 FREE” promotion.  There are only 3 days left to take advantage of this.

This suite is close to my heart as it brings back so many happy memories.  My Dad worked out of town during the week which meant he left Sunday arvos & would be home Friday night.

We would all “help” him to back his swag Sunday although looking back I think we were more of a hindrance than a help but he didn’t seem to mind.

Anyhow, usually when he arrived home on the Friday night, he would sometimes carefully place his ?moving” swag on the floor which meant there was something usually Animal-Expedition-1---Insidalive in it.  With excited anticipation we would gently unwrap it to find a joey wrapped up safe & sound fully aware that its mother had been killed.  Dad never went past a dead animal on the side of the road without checking for a pouch.   He still stops & checks to this day which means I now do the same!

Our yard was always full of orphaned joeys, lambs, birds, etc but my favourite was & still is the kangaroo.  Imagine my surprise when SU! brought out this fantastic Animal Expedition Suite!  I think it was just for me!

Anyhow, I decided to keep the card simple although I’ve used a few bright colours of Berry Burst & Lemon Lime Twist to create my card.  I’ve toned the colours down by adding a little Vellum over the top of the DSP.

Congratulations…..

… on finding each other.

This is the lovely sentiment from Stampin’ Up!’s “A Word for you“.  It is also the sentiment I stamped onto this great little card.

Today’s share is the card we created in Crafty’s Creations Class this arvo.  Of course, everyone’s was very different, but that the great thing about all having the same kit & each creating their card by adding their personal touch.

I would never usually combine Basic Black & Regal Rose together but I wanted a bit of a dramatic effect & think it has worked.  Of course, the strip of Pearls along the top & the touch of Certainly Celery adds dimenion & colour to the card.
