Wags 'n Whiskers - inspirational challenge

Happy Friday!!! YAY!!! It's time for a new Wags 'n Whiskers challenge! This week, the challenge was issued by the one and only Crissy Armstrong. I'm sure you're familiar with Crissy's work, even if you don't know it. LOL! She's an artist for several lines of stamps, including Wags 'n Whiskers!! Dang, this girl has some TALENT with a capital T!! Crissy's challenge is this: Be inspired! Use someone else's creation to inspire you! Give them credit for the inspiration and link us back to their project! Well, I was blog hopping the other day and came across a card with a layout I really loved! So I let it inspire me for this card. Please click HERE to see the card by Irina Blount.

Please be sure and visit the Wags 'n Whiskers blog to see the gorgeous creations from the rest of the fabulously talented Diva's, then use one of your Wags 'n Whiskers stamps to play along with the challenge for a chance to win! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon!
