EFA Team April Challenge BUDS & BLOSSOMS

Its already the end of April !

Team Efa (Etsy for Animals) completed its Challenge tour of our membership's April entries... This month's theme was "Buds and Blossoms". LolaLynn, our Challenge Leader, put together two marvelous Etsy Treasuries featuring many of our products. THANK YOU, Lynn :)

I very much enjoyed sipping my honey tea each morning whilst viewing the Challenge entries... it was an absolutely lovely month... so many yummies... THANKS to each one of you for brightening up my day :)

I've selected three of my favorites from each treasury for an up close viewing- ENJOY !

BUDS and BLOSSOMS part 1

Yellow Visitor by HumaneCreations

"These little yellow guys are so cute! They visit us every summer. My original is acrylic paint on canvas board. This print is ink on high quality gloss paper."

Delightful Daisy by Brizel4TheAnimals

"This wondrous multicolored daisy flower pendant will surely brighten your day ! Made from Tagua nut... an eco-friendly renewable petrified wood from the Amazon rain forest... six natural white tear shaped tagua beads have been sewn together and embellished at the center with a purple spiral."

Pop Art Pets by KneeDeepOriginals

"Looking for something a little different in a pet portrait ? If you have a special companion and want to commission a vibrant, unique portrait of him or her, I will be happy to customize a photo that you provide for me into a one of a kind and very special pop art or abstract painting while still showing your pet's own personality !"

BUDS and BLOSSOMS part 2

Kafir Fig by KraftiKats

"I love these beautiful, sunny, daisy like flowers of the Kafir Fig or Hottentot Fig as it is also known. This is an original drawing in watercolour pencils on a sheet of Fabriano paper, 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" (24cms x 32cms) and the image within the outline measures about 8" x 6" (20cms x 15 cms)"

Flower Pot Dog by TheDogHouse

"This moss green fairtrade organic cotton women's hooded sweatshirt features a hand printed image in white of a collie at a windowsill filled with flowers. The sweatshirt is pullover in style with a hood & front pocket. It is made of 80% organic fair trade combed cotton & 20% polyester. The garment has been distressed & washed to to give a vintage look."

Meow Magnet by GoGoBadger

"One-only designs from snippings and clippings from magazines and fabric, preserved into colorful, whimsical and utilitarian items, in this case a magnet."
