DT #94 at Mo's-Easel Card with an Animal

Well, for the month of August I will be the hostess with the mostess over at Mo's. If you look you can find the upcoming challenges making it easier for you to play along. We have so many fun projects and themes coming up. I hope you can play along. So for my first challenge at Mo's I decided to not only make an Easel Card, but I thought it would be fun to include an image that also had an animal in it. Mo has so many cute images that include all types of animals, the hardest part of the challenge is to decide which one to use. In the end, I decided to use "it's Hot" Which you can find HERE we were having a heat wave here in New York when I did this, so it was the perfect choice.. He looks so relaxed hanging out in his sisters kiddie pool... And his huge feet reminded me of my sons huge he eventually did grow into them...

Here is my easel card:

and I'm having so much fun making matching boxes. Here is a picture of the box:

Hey Debbie! This is one terrific card, sweetie! Boys cards always seem to be neglected and it's great to see such a gorgeous male card for a change! The colors are amazing, really refreshing on this heat we're having here in Romania too. This image is fabulous and your coloring did justice to it. Really really beautiful!
Love the matching box. Yes, it's a great idea to make some of these too. I barely have the time to make the card inside. Oh, I wish I had more time:(
Big hugs to you and enjoy your week-end (oh, I'm green pea with envy when I think of all those Broadway shows you might be attending:)))
Luv, Iulia
