Cuddley Lions

I made today's card for a GinaK swap on SCS. I decided to use Melanie's Cuddles and Hugs set, which is one of my faves! I just love this sweet lion image - it reminds me of that YouTube video of Christian the lion, ever see it? I'll find it and embed it down below. :-) For my card, I thought More Mustard and Really Rust would be a nice lion-y color combo to use. :-) Then I was looking through my paper stash, and found this paper that was in the Stampin' Up mini catalog last fall. It's not paw prints, but I think it kinda looks like paw prints! So, I went with it! I also love this sentiment, so very sweet. And by the way, this card has had a much more favorable reaction from my 3 year old than most of my cards - he saw it sitting on the desk and was very excited that I had made a card of Simba and Nala! :-) Carter doesn't have preschool this week (spring break!) so my DH took the day off and we're going to go and do something "fun". But we haven't quite decided what that will be just yet. :-) But I better get moving so we're ready to go. Thanks for stopping by today!
