Critters and Creatures Linky Party 1 - February

Hi blogging friends. Welcome to the very first "Critters and Creatures" Linky party. Yes, you read correctly, I have decided to start up another linky party, as I am having so much fun with the "Let's Color" party. Bought the inklinz subscription, so I might as well get some good use out of it :-)

For this linky party you will use an animal (pets, wildlife, fish, birds, insects, etc. - real or mythical) as the focal point. Seems like there are so many creations with girly images out there, being shared in blogland (which are all gorgeous!!!) but I'd like to see more critter creations :-)

 Rules and Guidelines
Focal point must be a critter or creature (any animal) 
It must be a new creation (no back linking)
Mention linky party on your blog post or gallery entry
Enter as many times as you like as long as it's new
Feel free to combine with other challenges 
Each linky party will be "Anything Goes with a critter or creature" 

Critters and Creatures #1
Anything goes with an animal

Image has been stamped onto neenah solar crest card stock and then colored with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, copic markers for the skin. The tiny hearts at the bottom are from a really old Stampin Up Stamp set. Postmark and cancellation mark are by Penny Black. I used an old cuttlebug die for the hearts.
You can find the cute image HERE in this set.

And now it's your turn to share a critter or creation creation.

Starting February 1st
 (Image above for logo has been used with written permission by Penny Black, Inc.)

I will post 2 to 3 of my top picks who will receive a badge to post to their side bar. 
Top picks will be announced with the next linky party.
You have until March 5th 9am EST to link up. New party will start Monday March 7th. 

Happy creating!!
