 It's my turn to set the theme for this week's challenge at Passion for Markers and I have chosen a nice easy one - 'Animal Antics'

Don't forget to pop into the blog to find all the details and get some inspiration from the Team 2 girls

I have used a Penny Black stamp that I have used for DT cards more than once before, but I do  love it, it stamps so well and is easy to colour.  I have made a centre panel card inspired by Sam Calcott's Youtube video:

I chose a rather aptly named image for my DT card:
