Hello and welcome to today's Social Stamping Blog Host! We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators brought together by the very lovely and talented Kelly Kent. For the last nine weeks, we have been sharing our creations as a means of bringing us together due to the world being in various stages of social distancing and isolation. You may have arrived here from seeing Nikki Spencer's gorgeous creation, or if you are starting here please be sure to hop around everyone, you won't want to miss any of the inspiring projects everyone has to share.

The theme for this hop is "Animals" and with the Animal Outing Stamp Set about to retire I thought I would give it a little love before it does!

The images in this set are so cute and with a checked background stamped using the Buffalo Check Stamp in Balmy Blue, I thought it would make a great baby card.

The background, behind the rhino, is from the Label Me Bold Stamp Set and I've splattered it with some Shimmery Champagne Mist too!

He looks like such a big softie! I water-coloured him in Gray Granite and added a little blushing check using Blushing Bride.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy our animal blog hop. Please click on the next button below to visit Lisa and see what inspiring project she has created!
