Butterfly Hair at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies

     It's August 1st and that means another new monthly "Anything Goes with a Critter" challenge is starting at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  Our sponsor this month is SheepSki Designs and Andrea generously donated all the images used by the DT.   I chose one from my own collection of SheepSki images and it's called "Butterfly Hair."  I merged one, larger, butterfly above the image so don't expect it to be there if you go look at the image in the store.  :-D

     2CCC is also partnering with Double Trouble for the first two weeks of August (starting on Monday, August 3).  The theme at Double Trouble will be/is "Dog Days of Summer" and you can enter using any image of a dog or a cat or any of your favorite creatures.  I chose butterflies, but don't tell my feline fur babies - they'll be so jealous!  As an additional twist you can do either heat embossing or dry embossing.  I did dry embossing.

I was inspired by the sketch at House that Stamps Built.

This is so pretty. I'd like a few of those birds to braid my hair too. [Bunny]

Beautifully done, my friend! I love the blue and purple color combo and the patterned paper is gorgeous! I don't know how I never learned the Snow White skill of talking to the animals and having them braid my hair and do my chores! 😄
