Check Out My Favorite Animals

It's Duel Day - the Dueling Darlings are hosted this month by Barb (Divas) and Tracie (Dazzlers). They chose a fun theme, in honor of a special holiday that takes place this month (on the 20th). 

Love Your Pet

I'm a Dazzler, so I received a fabulous kit from Tracie... THANKS Tracie!

The kit included images from Newton's Nook Designs "Fetching Friendship" stamped on Neenah Classic Crest Cardstock with Gina K Amalgam Ink, "Companions" Designer Paper from Authentique,  and ribbon, brads and other goodies from Tracie's stash.

Here is the inside of my card:

Tracie gave us a little "extra challenge" too, in honor of her youngest sister, whose birthday is February 19th. She works for a pet company, so I'm guessing she really likes animals of all kinds. Tracie's extra challenge is for us to show a picture of our favorite animal.

Hmmmmm... I'm kind of partial to ducks because my Brock LOVES his ducks. He goes to the park to feed them every chance he gets. I tried to find a picture of him with his ducks, but was unsuccessful, so instead I'll post this stock picture I found on the internet.

But the truth is, 
these five are also some of my favorite animals (LOL!)

Brock loves his squeaky critters - and every morning, part of the "Get ready for the day" routine includes squawking critters, singing songs, and spinning the fidget spinner. Mornings are never dull at our house. I. love. morning. routines. (about as much as Brock does!)

Be sure to head over to all the Dueling Darling blogs to see their "Love Your Pet" cards. You'll find links to their blogs in my left sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The only thing I used in addition to Tracie's fabulous kit was some cardstock for layering and for the card base - Recollections Blue and White and SU Cherry Cobbler.

I love your card- great layout- and clever inside with a portion of the punched strip. So cute to imagine the noisy squeaky critters in the AM, and the fun of feeding the ducks!
