I'm Not Lion

I have been so busy lately.  I have gotten all the blocks for my quilt cut out and I laid them all out so that I could see how it would look.  I quite like it and can't wait until I get it all pieced together and finished.  We also finished remodeling the room in our basement that has now become my new craft room.  I even get a window now!  It was carpeted last Friday and I spent this past week moving my stuff in to the room.  This is the first chance I have had to actually use it since I moved the last of my stuff in on Thursday night.  So, this is the first card I have made in my new room.


This is a shaped card that is about 5 1/2"x4" when folded.  I used "Wild Card 2" to create this card.  This particular card can be found on page 48 of the handbook.  I added flocking to the mane and tail for a little texture.


The font is from "Carousel."  It was cut at 1."  I used foam tape to adhere it to the card.  I also used Cricut Craft Room to hide the inner contours of the orange layer so that it would cut as one solid piece.


I used a stamp from Scrappy Moms Stamps for the sentiment.  It is from the "Little Critters" set.

I made this for the following challenges:
BBTB2: Father's Day
Fantabulous Cricut: Father's Day
The Friday Mashup: Father's Day project, or for a special guy
{PIN}spirational Challenges: photo inspiration (I was inspired by the theme, so I made a Father's Day card)
Stuck On U Sketches: any animal
