Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #364


wed-newchallenge-header 

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Birthday Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

Let's Do the Polka

 We are using Lawn Fawn products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

I made this card for my daughter Stephanie who has a thing about Otter. She said that watching Otter You Tube videos (see here) make her happy and smiley!

When she found out Lawn Fawn's Otterly Great Birthday, she urged me to "just get it".

 Stephanie rarely encourages me to get stamps (because I do know how! LOL)....but this stamp set? They are otterly different. 
 
Have an otterly great birthday (Apr. 13th)
 Using polka dots on pattern paper seems like the perfect ting to do. You get colors and patterns all in one. With the extra otter images, I made a tag, too. 

each day is new
Now if you are like Stephanie, you otter look into getting this stamp and die combo. There is nothing else like the otterly cute otter

Otterly terrific. Stephanie's right; these charming little creatures are always entertaining. Love to watch them myself. Your card and tag reflects that...who wouldn't love otters and polka dots. They cute, sweet and playful.

Darling otter cards, Virgina - every bit as cute as the real critters! I enjoyed the video Stephanie recommended too!!

Harriet said...

The video is really excellent. My husband, while golfing in Florida many years ago, was fortunate to observe an otter eating while swimming in a pond. Your card should bring a smile to Stephanie. Who would ever think and otter stamp and die would ever be made....thank you Lawn Fawn. Love the dots.
