Wild thing!

Now please don't faint but I have actually done a DCM challenge on the day it was set! It was Kathy's turn today to set the challenge and here is what she had to say
Hellooooo, Kathy here to set you a really Beastly dare this week! The theme is ANIMAL and you can use anything that's animal inspired - not those diddy little ones like bugs, birds and butterflies (though you can include them in your design of course) but what I'd really like to see is bigger, wilder, more fabulous or fantastic creatures So you could maybe use animal die cuts, animal prints on paper or fabric, or maybe animal words or phrases "grrrrr get down tiger"!!!! You could invent your own wild and wonderful beasties, or go back in time for dinosaurs, or into the world of mythology for all sorts of incredible creatures. How about a card in the shape of a tiger, elephant or monkey? Now, there's a challenge for you.... I'd love you to all go really wild over this one and have loads of beastly fun
Now I seem to be lacking greatly in ferocious beasts so had to make do with a dinosaur, albeit a man eating one! and here is my card

I think this may be a loose interpretation of one of Sue's old SWOT templates (see Sue I DO like them LOL). Papers used are K & Co as usual, Dino the man eating dinosaur is a Sizzix die cut which I received ages ago in a RAK, brads are Doodlebug and the dotty ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis

I also made a quick birthday card for hubby to take up to the Hotel tonight as he is dj'ing. They never tell him whether the party is for a male of female birthday so it makes it a little awkward when making a card, but hey ho, that's life LOL.

Today is Mum and Dad's official 50th wedding anniversary and they called this morning for a 'loo and tea' break on their way up to the Lake District for the 'second honeymoon' which we booked for them as their pressie. Actually, it is really their first as they couldn't afford one when they got married! I don't know about a honeymoon, I think they deserve medals for staying married for that long :) I admire them greatly and they are fabulous role models!

I am supposed to be sorting out my album (removing discontinued stationery and adding new ones) as I have another wedding fayre on Sunday. Can you tell that I can't get motivated? I think I might just go and make a cup of coffee. :)

Take care. xx
