Revenge of the Pandas

Day 25 of Covid-19 Level 4 Lockdown, and it feels as if all the Zoos in the world have turned the tables on us.  We are the ones caged, locked up, no longer free to roam (except one by one to a supermarket).
Another 8x8 fat page, stamping on a "scrapbooking" sheet of paper that depicts the sandy shores at waves' edge that we can no longer wander along:

Border stamps from Seth Apter
Gates from the late lamented Third Coast (Third Stone)
Giraffe & Lion by Rubber Dance
AUD tiger and elephant by Lost Coast Designs
small heads, triply-stamped "Kiss my Butt" and otter (?) from viva las vegas stamps
Bat-owl from Stampendous
Did you notice?  No Pandas were caught on this page, but the Serengeti is well represented.
Keep sharing your darkness with us on the right.

Hello old Friend

Gecko Galz started to have daily challenges
at their blog last month. Every day is a new theme
and if you enter the daily challenge, you'll
get a sheet of great pictures to play with

Today's theme was "Dark Dreams" 
and I entered the challenge twice
with this ATC

Both images and sentiment is from GG.

and also with this card

where I used the images I got from today's freebie sheet.

Let us see what you have been creating,
I believe there is some happy mail coming
to someone from other side of the world when our
froggy has got 40 links there --->>>>

As the Covid-19 gets blown around a deserted world, like tumbleweeds in the desert, scientists still ponder the origin, and notice the positive side effects.

I had a lightly patterned piece of paper I didn't like, with a daisy  or sunflower in one corner.
There are bats from Smeared Ink (in recess), vivalasvegas stamps are responsible for the 3-skull bat, the cowboy-fence scene, the cowboy leading a horse (subtly altered text).  Bats were easy, I have many many batty stamps.  But not one pangolin.  So I took liberties and used Butter Side Down's Hylaeosaurus and Lost Coast Designs AUD mouse.  Both of them have scaly torsos, and a sort-of ant-eaterish snout.
And don't Seth Apter's spotlight stamps from Impression Obsession make marvellous virus-like shapes as a border.
This is an 8"x8" fat page, but as I've no idea how I will end up binding them, there is an extra half-inch at the left that will disappear into the binding process.  Over the past month I have been creating a few covid-19 related fat pages and posted in facebook - click along from here:

And if your dark side is coming out in your art, share it on the right, with a 1 in 20 chance of a prize.
Stay healthy everyone.
