CSS Animal Treasure Chest

Welcome to our Treasure Chest Challenge. The CSS group was asked to use a stamp set with animals. I have plenty of those. :0) If you are following along the hop like a diligent little bunny in a garden of inspiration, you should have just come from Melissa Cash's blog. If not, you will want to start over at the beginning at StampTV so you don't miss any of the team's posts. You will also want to make sure you visit every blog and leave a comment. There is a chance to win some free rubber.

Here is my project for the hop. I pulled out one of my favorites called Dream Birds.





I also pulled out this fun label and sentiment set called Versatile Verses. It's a fun one to paper piece. I use some Kioshi paper from Basic Grey. I don' often use purple. So this was a fun new color combo for me.

Now head over to Miesje Flach's blog to enjoy some more animal fun.

And make sure you leave a comment on each blog. Some lucky person will be chosen from all the commenters to win a free stamp set. FREE rubber is always fun!
