Time for the very first SugarPea Designs Challenge!

     Welcome, welcome everyone!  My card today is inspiration for the very first challenge from SugarPea Designs!

  Our inaugural challenge is super easy peasy, "Anything Goes" AND it's a month long challenge, so you have plenty of time to play.  You must use a SugarPea Designs stamp to play along, but I know lots of them flew off the shelf after the release party, Nicole---hee hee, so I hope you were one of the people who snatched one or more up and can play along.

     For my card I've used the adorable gopher again.  This is an awesome set and
here's a link to it in the SPD store.

Bean Stalk Collection Go-Pher It

I used a bit of colorless blender to give him some fur texture.  I could just eat him up he's such a fun character.  Here's a closer pic of my furry friend.
