Day of the Month Card Club - Save the Rhino Day

Hi Everyone,

It's "Save the Rhino" day, which is celebrated on May first. For more info on this day just go to the DOTMCC challenge.

The Rhinoceros has been around for million of years, but it has been hunted to near extinction. It belongs to the species of odd-toed ungulates. Those are hoofed animalsungulates—which bear most of their weight on one (an odd number) of the five toes: the third toe. Interesting, right?!

Let's hope the rhino does not become extinct and lets celebrate the still surviving rhinos and hope they will thrive and multiply, unharmed by poachers and horn hunters.

The rhino I used is from a cute Stampin up set - I have the German version. The sentiment says I love you very much. The background I made with an iStencil - one of my favorites from them.

It looks so 3-D! I colored the rhino with Inktense and cut it out. Put some glossy accents on its horn. Added Bakers Twine.

Now I hope you will have time to 

I am counting on you! You have until the end of the month (5/31) to do so.

This is a voting challenge - the winner will be determined by vote. Everybody can vote, even if you didn't play along. Voting starts on the first of the following month - June first. 
The 3 participants with the most votes will win. 
The winners will be showcased on the 5th of each month and the new challenge will start each month on the seventh.
And to make it more fun and appealing it would be great if you could comment on at least 3 other participants - perhaps you'll find some new friends that way. 

There is always a reason to celebrate!

So glad you highlighted the plight of the rhino. I was lucky enough to be charged by one in the wild and it is a memory that will stay with me forever - good memory :-) Your three D stencil is amazing and I love your little rhino and friend. So glad you joined us at the Players this week

That stencil is amazing. Your card has so much dimension using it and gives movement to the rhino. The twine is a nice pop of color.
Super cute card! I think that optical illusion stencil is so cool!

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
