SUO Challenge 16, It’s Raining Cats and Dogs!

This is the month of April!

April showers bring May flowers… and spring is also the time when baby animals are born and the earth is bursting with new life! So that means, this challenge is for Animal cards!! Time to show off your love for animals… any animals… cats, dogs, birds, bunny rabbits, monkeys, owls and even giraffes! If it is an animal, you're welcome to feature it on your project! (Easter Bunnies are included!! Yay!) Some of our design team members used MDS and we also feature a project with hybrid digital/scrap art! Time to get creative with animals! Come join us!
