CCEE2030 ~ National Zookeepers Week!

Hi friends!

It's a ZOO out there!
And on the CCEE Stampers blog this week, 
quite literally :)
Lois is our July hostess and has asked us
 to create a card with at least one zoo animal on it.

Today's card is a slimline card, 
a card style quite popular in the crafting community!
I can't say I've 'caught the bug' fad just yet 
but I'm loving the inspiration I'm seeing everywhere.
This slimline die set is from Lawn Fawn and I've paired it 
with the super fun Zoo stamp set from Gerda Steiner.

To create the sky, I used the MFT Cloud stencil and
Ranger Ink Distress oxides in Tumbled Glass and Broken China.
For the hills, I used a stitched die
and added it like a puzzle piece to layer it.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment 'It's your birthday ..."
and on the inside "Go WILD!"

I'll be making a video of this very soon 
and you'll be able to see it on my YouTube channel ~
which was my happy news to share before I ended up sick.

I even have a wee giveaway right now that ends August 1st -
head on over if you'd like to peek!
I'm really new, really novice but excited to start this new venture
and I'd love to have you subscribe!

Here's a final look at my zoo card:

Be sure to stop over at the CCEE Stampers blog

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings!
