Challenge #12 Sponsored by Limited Runs

Welcome to our 12th Challenge here at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  Please do not forget to check our rules. Thanks!

       OK, let's get right to what you all want to know - our winner of the prize offered by SHEEPSKI DESIGNS for our February, 2018 challenge is:

with this fab project.

Congratulations!  Please email us at 2craftycrittercrazies(at)gmail(dot)com so that we can arrange to get your prize to you.
We've made some changes starting this month and 
from now on our challenges will close on the 25th of the month.
We'll be choosing DT Favorite projects (!!)
from the monthly entries each month
and closing earlier will give the DT time to make 
their selections.

We were crunched for time this month but still managed to choose these 
DT Favorites:

Lori - 15 Aussie Annie
I love all the hearts used on this card,
the paper, the dies,.  It just screams love!!

CarolG - 86. ~Create.365 ~ Kathy K
I like the simple design, colour, contrast, and
the movement created with the shape of the 3 panels and
the super stencilled background
(not to mention those cheeky frogs)!

NanaConnie - #137 Dreja
I love that this is such a CAS design but looks much more
 complicated with the brush stroke background
and everything stamped on top of it.

Donna - #136 Nick
The smarmy expression and body language
in Nick's frog made me laugh!
Fabulous monochromatic design with so
many textures in those froggy papers.

Ine - # 126 Anet
I love the elephant and the hearts
and other things on the card to make it complete.
Great job!

Karen - #168 Larissa
The mice are adorable, and beautifully colored;
bright and cheery card

Cheryl - #151 Christi C.
 I love the simplicity of this one and the inky background.

Favorites Ladies, please take this badge and add it to your blog.
