Vintage Lion Card

Today I decided to challenge myself by making one card that fit several card challenges. My normal routine is to make a card and then see what challenges they might fit. It could be that many Crafters do it the way I tried today. To me, it was a CHALLENGE. I am not sure I will try that again - that was a LOT of thinking

  1. Hi Gail! You sure are creative, my friend. I love your lion, and am so thankful that you've shared it in our challenge this week at Word Art Wednesday. Hope you are doing well, keeping crafty, and that all is peaceful and blessed in your neck of the woods. My boys return from hunting this evening, so I've got a big pot of chili going and will pop some cornbread in the oven later. Thanks for sharing, and hope to see you again real soon!

  2. I like your choice of King of the Jungle Lion for your card. The background paper compliments the safari look. Thanks for entering MFP Simple Salutations Ch#17 Cat Wild or Domestic.
