MIM#155 Hula Hoop Time with 2cuteInk

 It's been a busy weekend with DT cards, so please scroll down and check out the previous two posts and maybe leave a comment so I know you have visited.

Yeah!!! It's the start of another linky party at Make It Monday. We had loads of fantastic entries last week and just wanted to say congrats to Helen as the featured artist and to Pat K as the winning commenter.
Our sponsor this week is 2 Cute Ink Digital Stamps and the prize being offered is 3 digis. Hope you link up your creations and get commenting on the other entries to be in for the chance of being featured or winning these cute images.
I chose to play with this sweet image of a hamster playing with his Hoola Hoop. I kept my card pretty simple, no designer papers, just cardstock, some embossing and a die cut.
Here it is.........

SU Bashful Blue cardstock for the square basecard
SU Pistachio Pudding cardstock for matting and the die cut
White card from stash
Nestie Die - Leafy Squares, Classic Circles - large
Punch - Oval
Image is from 2 Cute Ink - Hula Hoop Hamster
Sentiment is from SU
Embossing folder was a freebie with magazine purchase - I don't think you can see the detail well here, but it is a lovely one with butterflies on it.
Copic Markers
Black Pen
DS tape roller
Foam Dots

I am entering this into the following challenges: for Challenge - Challenge #4 ~ Animals
Created With Love Challenges - CWLC55 ~ Anything Goes
The Crazy Challenge - Challenge #152 ~ Animals

POTW time once more and I've chosen this delightful tag from Chana at CARD-D-OLOGY  and you can find it here

 A second choice is this lovely card from Billie at ink on my fingers and you can find it here. Billie made her own background for this one.

Okay, I have to get a move on, going out shortly and I've also got a load of washing on to. It's time for you to get creative and share with us. The DT are looking forward to visiting you and leaving you a comment and keeping in mind one or two entries for our POTW
