It's Fussy and Fancy Time!

Hello Everyone!
It's time once again for a new challenge over at the 
 Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge
Today's hostess is our very talented Diane and her chosen theme is:

Pamper Your Pets
Well, being raised on a small farm, my pets were a bit shall I say, out of the ordinary
as you see by my card below ... LOL!

Not your typical pets ... right!  LOL
But it was always fun around the farm and oh yes, we each had our favorites!!

The first thing I needed to do for today's card was created a 'backdrop' for my PETS.  To do this, I used ink, sponges and a few Stampscapes stamps (all product listed below).  Next came my adorable pets!  Elizabeth Craft has an array of animal dies and these are three that brought me joy 'down on the farm' (links listed below).

I hope you've enjoyed my card today and are inspired to come join in our challenge.
For more awesome inspiration be sure to pop over and see what my team mates have created ... OMG, so much talent on this team!!
