As You Like it #59 - Fur or Feathers

Hi everyone!  Hope your week is going well and you see some crafty time in the near future.  The gang at As You Like It Challenge wants to know whether you prefer furry little creatures or feathery creatures and we want to see your creations.

This was an easy choice for me.  I love puppies and kitties and rabbits and teddy bears...anything soft and cuddly.  I like feathered friends also.  I had a large parrot who was very entertaining.  He could bark like a dog, meow like a cat, cry like a baby and talk like a human.  Until I lived with him, I had no idea parrots were so smart and had such personalities.  Gonzo still lives with my sister as he would have had to be quarantined to move to Hawaii.  He is about 34 years old now and with any luck should live to 50 or so.  OK...enough about birds and on to the bears!

For my card this week, I chose Johnny Bear from Purple Onion.  He is sooooo cute!  I had fun using this Sizzix Flip-It card die for the first time.  I will definitely be using it again soon, very easy with fun results.   

Thanks for stopping in, I am looking forward to visiting your blogs  to see which your prefer.  Be sure to stop by the AYLI Blog for plenty of inspiration, my teamies are amazing!  Link up your furs or feathers for a chance to win!
