Lori is our BBTB2 hostess this week and she selected Life Is A Beach for our cartridge and the die cut selected is the lizard. I couldn't help but bring my home state of Arizona into my design, I can sit on my porch and watch the block wall fence full of scurrying lizards. My Springer Spaniel dog Brigette used to love to chase the lizards because she felt they were on HER fence. My Springer Spaniel Heidi could care less..... she just wants to come back in the house and beg for a cookie.

My card has a variety of paper dies.
Punch Out Letters (Arizona)
Cricut cartridges: Life Is A Beach (Lizard)
Don Juan (Wild Life)
Sizzix: Orange Frame, Cactus
Sun: Punch (Jewel)
Cuttlebug Embossing: Swiss Dots
Thanks for stopping by...and I hope you take a peek at the designer's cards on Bitten By The Bug2.

What a perfect cut to highlight your home state, Carole. This is really wonderful. I love the oranges, they really make that lizard pop.

Oh I love your Arizona design and all the texture, Carole. Gotta love our lizards. ;-) I just finished a mini album of a recent Sedona trip. Arizona is a beautiful place to live!
