Hug an Aussie!

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As challenge hostess for April, I continue to issue the challenges.

Apparently the 26th April is Hug an Australian Day who knew and I am Australian LOL.  If you don't know any Aussies close by you can hug me, we might need to rely on virtual hugs haha! {{{{hugs}}}}. For our challenge this week use a cute critter that you think would be huggable … Bonus points if you use an animal native to Australia.

For my card this week I grabbed my Magnolia Tilda with Koala stamp which is perfect for this challenge ... a cute animal and Tilda is hugging the koala, which of course is an Aussie!!!!

As you can see I have created a Pivot Card using the Katie Label Pivot Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

For the sentiments I used a couple of dies I purchased at a recent Craft Show.

Here is the back of my card, I always love how the back of these types of cards also have some point of interest to them.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

I always like your pivot cards and this one is no exception. Tilda and her koala are sweet!

Great word dies to carry through the huggable theme! I had at least four toy koalas when I was small (more than I had traditional teddies), so I've loved seeing all the ones who came out for a hug today. Thanks for the great challenge.
