A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 110 - Animals

Came across this challenge today from mina's blog - pinkpuds. It was from  Spoon Full of Sugar. It was to make a card with an animal theme and the optional extra was for your daughter, grandaughter, etc to make one as well.  I found the challenge a little difficult as I didn't think I had any stamps with animals.  Then I remembered purchasing the lucky bag from Sugar Nellie were you got 4 stamps and a few bits for £10.00.  I had received a stamp of a squirrel and thought I'll never use that and put it away.  It is not a stamp that I would probably use again, but it worked for this challenge.
Cardstock  and patterned paper - Die Cuts with a View
Dotted paper - Doodlebug
Ribbon - Making Memories
Computer generated message (couldn't really think of a saying that suited)
Stamped with Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink as didn't have brown Stazon
Coloured with Distress Inks

Here is the card that my youngest daughter Hollie made. She is eight years old.  Normally she would craft with me and sometimes she ends up making a mess or not happy with what she makes.  Today she took a little bit more time and was pleased with her card.
Cardstock - Paper Mill
Paper and Stickers - Doodlebug
Stamp - Little Gem Designs
Happy Birthday Stamp - Pink Gem Designs

Well done Holly - you can keep your mum on her toes with the challenges. I think you are going to have a great summer crafting.
I am going to stop following again to see if I can sort out this problem with updates not coming through. Must be at my end because I don't get Clabby's either. Perhaps Mel's site can help.
