I am losing a few of my favorite sets to the “Last Chance List” this year, (formerly known as the retirement list). One of these sets I will be so sad to see leave the catalog will be Wild About You. This is one of those sets I will be keeping around for a long time. It is just so versatile, the little animals can be used for so many different occasions. Today’s use was for a set of thank you cards for a baby shower. I always like to include some thank you’s when I give baby, bridal or wedding gifts, because really you can never have enough thank you notes. I think that I was inspired with this design from someone on the blog tour that I participated in last month, I made a quick round through the tour planning on going back the next day to really check things out and jot down notes and stuff but, well, that didn't happen and now I don't know where I saw the cards or design that inspired this set. I used the same 3 main colors and just rotated them a little with each different animal. For the aligator I ended up using Always Artichoke but stamped it off on a piece of scratch paper before stamping it on my cardstock to soften the look of him a bit. The saying actually came from the Trendy Trees stamp set. They are cute and simple and I am really pleased with how they turned out. Stamps: Wild About You, Trendy Trees
