Going on a safari....




Okay well I'm not really going on a safari, but that's what the photo inspiration at Fairy Fun Fridays reminded me of this week. So I used Lenny the Lion, love him! I am going to be crazy mad busy the next few days, work today, wedding tomorrow, daughter's 5th birthday Sunday, so I may be AWOL until Monday, so I apologize in advance once again for not getting around to visit everyone. I am entering the following challenges.... Delightful Challenges - animals, dots/stripes, Cards For Men - off on adventure, Crazy Challenge - forest friends / back to nature, Ooh La La Creations - spots and dots, Stamps R Us - all male theme, Stamptacular Sunday - just for boys, Secret Crafter - it's a man's world, Crafty Catz - animals, Sew Many Challenges - stitching.
