90th Birthday Virtually

Well, with the situation we are in at the moment our granddads 90th birthday party has had to be cancelled. So we decided that all the family members will create a letter of Happy Birthday in a style that is just so them, and then the photos for every letter will be compiled and made into one big card.

I got the letter T - and as I am known among the family for my wide range of pets I decided to make my letter with my pets.

So the main backbone of the t was made using my snakes last shed. I then surrounded it with feathers from my birds. I then added a fake spider on a piece of Bearded Dragon skin web, stamped a rabbit and drew a guinea pig (ok my drawing is pretty poor, but I couldn't find my pencil so had to draw directly in pen meaning no erasing mistakes!!).

I would like to enter this into the following craft challenges:
SimonSaysMonday - Add some texture
intaas #80 No focal image
TIOT - The beauty of nature
AYLI - Animals or people - I much prefer using animals on my creations. I just find them much more usable. I do also much prefer animals in real life - in case you can't tell :D
SimplyCreateToo #159 Anything but a card
CountryView - Animal magic

Here are a couple of the pets:

Thanks for looking,
