This challenge is a great one for me because i am completely nuts about animals!! As a family we have several 'pets' that live here with us, and if we had more space and the time to dedicate to them, the number would be even greater i'm sure! Animals give love and pleasure and don't ask for much in return, only to be fed and loved and to live in clean and comfortable surroundings.
I love this wolf image and have used it a lot, but unfortunately i can't remember the manufacturer and there is nothing at all on the stamp itself. I bought it a couple of years ago at Alexandra Palace. It is an acrylic stamp and is mounted on a hard plastic type frame!?!, it's very easy to use, and gives a good crisp image every time. I really must try to make notes or keep packaging, so that in future i can be more informative about the things i share with you! :)

All paper here is from Crate paper 'Crush collection, which is all double sided(more options!) I have used Distress ink 'Brushed corduroy' to stamp my wolf directly onto the DP and also for the sentiment. The ribbon is Basic Grey 'Periphery' threaded through a small buckle from and i finished off with a brad which i think is either MM or K&Co!!

Inspired by the gorgeous Elephant dominoes that Julie created, I decided to search and find mine!! I haven't done any of these for ages, and this is what i came up with....I used Alcohol inks to colour the dominoe and added a tiny bit of gold mixative. When this was all dry i stamped my cats eyes with black Stazon and then edged all around with gold Krylon pen, i added a Perfect Pinback to the back so that i can wear it as a brooch! The stamp i used here is from PSX, but i think, unfortunately they no longer exist!
OK!! Here's the list... 3 Cats Juzzy, Milly and Willow- 2 Indian Runner Ducks Pepsi and Splash - 5 Bantams Smudge, Shadow, Pheobe, Camilla! and Tinksie and last but by no means least a Tortoise(currently asleep for the winter!) called Hard Nut!!...........And remembering forever our two great dogs Monty and Sam.... still miss them :)
