Well, as it is the first Friday of the month, it is time for the Clearly Inspired Challenge over at ClearlyiStamp.I used the Clear Dollar Stamps July Stamp of the Month set Goose Hugs. This month it's a theme challenge:
"Cute and Fuzzy"
Now some people may not think of Geese as 'fuzzy' but with this challenge in mind, this image just said "warm and fuzzy hug" to me, and how cute are those geese anyway? ;o)
