Bikkie The Platypus joins in with some fall crafting!!

Hello blogging buddies!!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!!
The weather here in Kansas has been glorious, light, crisp temperatures, low humidity, just wonderful!! I have had the luxury of playing with my crafty stuff this weekend and I created this card featuring Bikkie The Platypus from The Stamping Bazaar, illustrated by the talented Marina Neira, you can find it in digi and rubber HERE


Bikkie is just as sweet as can be, I think the character can work for both boy and girl cards, so I have banked on my theory while crafting, adding touches of delicate floral around an otherwise neutral palette. The papers are October Afternoon (spots) and Recollections(stripes), all floral punches are by EK Success and the doily punch is MS. I've coloured Bikkie with distress inks and cut him (or her) out and popped it up with foam dots. The pearls are Kaiser and the gingham is BoBunny. The expression on this little critter is priceless, it could be an I miss you card, Thinking of You, Thank you, the list goes on and on!!


I would like to pop this in at a few places,
ASFOS is hosting an Anything Goes Challenge,
at Crafty Catz Challenges there is a stitching challenge underway, at Charisma Cardz they are having an anything goes challenge, and I've used the fabulously versatile sketch from Cute Card Thursday. Phew, that's better!! I am starting to have challenge withdrawals over here!! And the dryer is done, so it is time to go and do my part and get to folding!! Til next time!!
