SHOPPING OUR STASH #286 - Fantastic Beasts

Hello and welcome! We have a fun new challenge starting today at SHOPPING OUR STASH - Fantastic Beasts! Anything from unicorns, Pegasus, Yetis, dragons, fairies, monsters, etc. we want to see it on your card or project. I had an idea pop into my head the other day, and I couldn't let it go, so I went with it. I present to you - the elusive Jackalope!

 and the inside:

Did you know that Jackalopes love birthday parties and cupcakes? This little guy looks a bit grumpy, probably because I caught him getting festive by hanging banners in the trees, (they like to keep a rough and tough image), and possibly sneaking a bite from that cupcake, before anyone sang Happy Birthday! 

So, ready to play along? Of course you are! Just link up your fantastical beast card or project at Shopping Our Stash so we can admire it! Be sure to stop by the blogs of the Design Team, and our Guest Designer, Marina, to see what they created, and leave them some bloggy lovin!

Remember, we are looking for Guest Designers! If you'd like to be considered for February, simply leave a "DT" after your name when you link up! Good luck!
