Raccoon Friends

Hello fellow crafters, and a big welcome to my newest followers, Mamma Mia and Debi. Thank you for taking the time to sign up, and I hope you enjoy your visits.

There is a new challenge for you at Penny's Paper Crafty, and our theme this week (my card may give you a clue) is
Our 2 generous sponsors this week are

The image I have used is 'Most Adorable Raccoons' by The Paper Shelter. 
I think I have mentioned before that I love recycling. The silver layers are actually the underside of yoghurt lids. The darker one is the same brand as the others, but reflected the top I was wearing.
Racoons are not found here in Australia, so I had to look them up on the internet to see what colours they are. I coloured them with my Promarkers. They really are the cutest little critters, aren't they.
I'm not really happy with the inside of my card. Rather than adhere a piece of the DP to the bottom of the card, I decided to split the piece, for a change. The 'corners' are just a circle I cut into quadrants.

Challenges I would like to enter are:-
An Oldie But A Goodie - 'Inspired By A Song' (Rocky Raccoon

Kaboodle Doodles #172 - 'Stripes and/or Circles'
LEJ Designs #54- 'Die Cuts and/or Punches'
