Stamp Something - Alligator Purse

The Stamp Something challenge this week was to use your favourite embellishments. I have lots of favourites, infact embellishments are my favourite part of any card but if I am forced to choose, and I am, I would say metal charms. I have added a few to my Alligator Purse Memory holder.
I used the very cute Whimsy Alligator to my holder, he is such a dream to colour.
The Whimsy Website has been revamped and looks amazing!
You can see the new release of Pet stamps which are available to preorder as a set at a great low price!

I bought a cancelled check wallet at Staples this morning, knowing it would come in handy for something. I altered it so it can be given as a gift with photos inside.

Supplies: Stamps ~ Whimsy Stamps 'Whimsy Alligator'
DP~ Cosmo Cricket 'Girl Friday - Sunday'
Basic Grey 'offbeat'
Embellishments ~ Making Memories charms, Tim Holz muse token, raffle ticket, buttons, hemp, Post It page marker, flower paperclip
