In the Jungle

Does this little guy look like he is in the jungle?  Well that is what I was going for anyway, LOL!  I just think this little guy always brings a smile to my face so I chose it for my great nephew who turned 3. I accidentally used the depossed side of the embossing folder but I think it looks ok, the leaves were punched from glossy cardstock with alcohol inks I had left over.

The tail I cut with my fiskars knife so that I could have it hanging over the sentiment banner.

Inky Antics -- Not Lion stamp, colored w/markers
Cuttlebug -- Floral Screen embossing folder
Spellbinders -- Lg. Deckled Rectangles die
Gina Marie-- Birthday words stamped sentiment
Martha Stewart -- leaf punch

Hope you are all having a good week so far. Trying to stay warm, it seems the heat is running a little more these days.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and let me know you have in this busy time of year.

Yes Connie,he definitely looks as if he's in the jungle!
But quite a friendly lion, very suitable for a 3 year old.
I hope you are getting on ok in the run-up to Christmas. Are your offspring visiting? Mine are, and I seem to have done nothing but shop for food!
