A Little Wild - It's a lot adorable!

I've really been neglecting my blog for a long time!  I'll try to be better about it but things are changing around my house so I can't make any solid promises.  Part of my excuse is that I spent some time in the hospital after getting a tick borne illness called ehrlichia.  It was a horrible illness and I strongly advise against getting it.  I've never been so sick in my life.  I actually wanted to just go ahead and die by the 3rd day.  Then I went to the hospital and was there 6 more days.  I feel better physically but my brain is still a bit confused so I've just been trying to take it as easy as I can while it heals.

In the mean time, the new Stampin' Up Annual Catalog came out and my very favorite stamp set is one called A Little Wild.  I have found a bit of time to play with the set so I have some cards and a scrapbook layout to feature on today's blog post.  The stamp set is designed to be small tags, perfect for birthday and baby shower gifts.  But they can be stamped and used with just the front of the animals like this card.  I stamped them on watercolor paper and used the new watercolor pencils to color them in.  Obviously, I need a lot more practice with water coloring!  I used Pacific Point cardstock to brighten it up some and the Woodland Embossing Folder to add dimension to the background.
