STAMP TV's ANIMAL KINGDOM BLOG HOP and a FREE STAMP SET

If you have come from Jennie Harper's blog you are right on target.   Didn't you just love her card, she is an amazing artist!!! In order not to miss any inspiration you can start at Stamp TV.

One of the neat things about Gina K Design stamps are the animal stamps.  - My DH is a veterinarian so thru the years we have had EVERY animal imaginable to have  -- snakes, owls, flying sugar babies, miniature ponies, and all kinds of cats and dogs!  They all have special personalities ---- so do the Gina K Designs Animal Stamps!

Here are some of my favorites --
  • Bug Me Anytime
  • Dino-mite
  • Dream Birds
  • Framed Friends
  • Hope Grows
  • Hope Is Faith
  • Nesting
  • Pretty As A Peacock
  • Purrr-fectly Delightful
  • Spring Has Sprung
  • Take Flight
  • Winter Wings
  • Zoo Animals

 Take a look at the complete selection here.

Here is my card:
 This one I made for my grandson - he always is trying to make us laugh, so I put the little giraffe upside down -- to see if he would notice or laugh.  I love that funny little boy!  Stamp is Zoo Animals by Asela Hopkins.

Here is another card:
I just love this stamp, I've used it so many times and still have a lot of sketches I'd like to use with this darling stamp.  The Stamp Set is called Spring Mix.  I used Gina K Designs Kraft, Sweet Corn and White cardstocks, plus a little misc. dp.

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (March 1st), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!

Now off to see what Karen Knegten has created to inspire you!  She will knock your socks off -- so be prepare to ooooh and ahhhhh!

When you are finished, be sure to stop by and let Stamp TV know what you liked about this hop!

Giuseppe Arcimboldo est probablement né à Milan en Italie en 1527. Il fut un peintre très populaire à son époque pour ses portraits et pour l'organisation des fêtes princières de la cour d'Autriche. Il fut également reconnu comme savant et technicien.Il tomba peu à peu dans l'oubli après sa mort le 11 juillet 1593 à Milan. Au XVIIe et XVIIIe siècle, plus personne ne se souvenait de lui. Il sera redécouvert au XIXe siècle et sera admiré par les peintres du surréalisme, notamment par Salvador Dali.
