Crackerbox Palace Animal Cards and More Blog Candy!

Hey Karen here and today I am sharing some cards I made with animal stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace. You can win your choice of the stamps featured on one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning this week’s blog candy are below.
But first- the winner of last week’s blog candy of the stamps featured on one of the cards last Thursday is                    Marilyn!
Here is her winning comment from the Crackerbox Palace blog:  Both of these cards are great! I like that pillow box technique and am going to check that out and give it a try. It's a really nice image and the background is perfect for it. Now I really do like that stamp on the second card and the barb wire border. My Dad used to ride bareback in the local rodeos so this brings back a lot of memories.

Marilyn, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want, so we can get you the stamps you have won.  And remember you can win another CBP stamp of your choice simply by posting a card you made with the stamps you won to your blog or Splitcoast Stampers gallery and sending us a link. 
My first card above features a favorite cat stamp called Peeking Cat and another favorite CBP sentiment stamp. I stamped the cat on the white layer and also on the orange, then cut away the orange to make it look like it was torn away by the cat. I tore and sponged around the sentiment. My husband loves his kitty and orange is his favorite color, so I used this card for his anniversary card this year (22 happy years celebrated early in August). 

My second card features Buddy the fish, a splash stamp and a perfect sentiment. I cut a hole in the front of the card with a circle nestabilities, created a circular frame also with nesties and placed some cool water dp in the inside of the card.

So would you like to win the fun stamps featured on one of today’s cards? Here is how to win our weekly blog candy:

 1.) We have decided that becoming a follower on both blogs is going to be something we would prefer you do but not a requirement.  My blog is here and the Crackerbox Palace blog is here. 

2.) Leave a comment on either my blog or the Crackerbox Palace blog on the Thursday blogpost featuring CBP stamps.  If you leave a comment on BOTH blogs, you will be entered twice in the drawing.   The deadline to leave a comment will be the following Wednesday at Noon CST. Mr. Random will pick a winner from the comments and he or she will win the featured stamp(s). You must send me ( or Crackerbox Palace (  an email with your home address so the stamps can be mailed to you. If we do not hear from you within two weeks after we announce your win, and we can’t reach you through a blog, your prize will be forfeited.  And if you post a card to your blog or to Splitcoast Stampers with the stamps you won and send a link to Crackerbox Palace, you will win another Crackerbox Palace stamp of your choice!!

I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenge at Papelito’s Stamps and the  “All about Boys” challenge at Creative Craft Challenges

Crackerbox Palace smiles, Karen
