16th Challenge - Sponsored by Createful Heart

     Welcome to our 16th Challenge here at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  Please do not forget to check our rules. Thanks!

     We are saying a fond farewell to Karen this month and wishing her well in all her future endeavors.  It's sad to see you go, Karen.  :-(  On the other hand, we are welcoming Lynn H. to the team!  So happy to have you with us, Lynn.  :-D  Here's her bio info:

Hi, I'm Lynn and so excited to be here as one of the designers for 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  I'm a retired pre-trial probation officer and  live in Texas (and no, I don't wear boots and a cowboy hat all the time).  I live with my two critters - Jim, the hubs critter and Rambo,  a four legged, burst of energy, dachshund critter. 
If you look at my blog, you'll notice I do a LOT of critter cards!  I just can't think of anything cuter than animals and I love them all.  I'm looking forward be being part of such a wonderful design team and challenge blog.
     You can find her wonderful blog at Creative Crafts by Lynn.

       OK, now let's get to what you all want to know - our winner of the prize offered by Sparkle n Sprinkle for our June, 2018 challenge is:

# 22 - Hazel  
with this fab card.

Congratulations!  Please email us at 2craftycrittercrazies(at)gmail(dot)com so that we can arrange to get your prize to you.

We've also chosen these as our
DT Favorites:

Lori - #28 *Vicki*

Who doesn't love watermelon in the summer!  When I was a kid my friends and I would spit the seeds out into the grass as we devoured our watermelon.  I love that the base of this card is a slice of watermelon with a nice healthy bite out of it!  That penguin is just as cute as can be and I love how he has gotten seeds everywhere!

CarolG - #42 Sharon R
I love the arty look, creative use of embossing powder,
 and the quirky images with the fish.   I kept going back
 to Sharon's three Artist Trading Coins and got inspired.

NanaConnie - #99 - Jennifer S.
I love her coloring on the image,
the gingham paper background,
and that fantastic scrunched ribbon bow!

Ine - #19 Jackie T
Love the chickens, the expression on their faces, 
and the way  they've been placed on the card.  :)

Teresa - #54 AJ
Her spotlight technique, in contrasting pink, is stunning. 
It really caught my eye! (Wink) 

Not only is Shell's lovely focal image colored beautifully, 
but the background paper was hand stamped with each image being gorgeously colored in carefully highlighted hues. So much loving kindness went into her creation! Love it!

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