Going to the Zoo at Cardz 4 Guyz

This week it's my turn to choose the theme at Cardz 4 Guyz, and I have chosen Going to the Zoo

Now I don't know how you feel about zoos - personally I have very mixed feelings. I hate to see wild animals kept in enclosures and out of their natural environment. But on the other hand I don't think it's possible to really, REALLY appreciate them by looking at pictures or watching films, the only way to really understand how important they are is to see and hear - and yes, even smell - them in real life. So since we can't all afford to visit these wonderful creatures in their natural habitat, and as long as everything possible is done to ensure their welfare, and the zoos take part in important conservation work, I think they have a place.

Well, that's the controversial bit over! But it does explain my card a bit - I have used all the cute animal images from the Woodware Jungle Pals set, but I've set them against a grey background embossed with a Crafters companion stone wall folder, to represent the enclosures they are being kept in. The wall gives the card a rather more masculine look, too, don't you think?

I must say, though, these particular animals are looking very happy about it!

We'd love to see YOUR take on the theme!

It's a lovely card Jane. Those happy chappies look great against the brick wall background. A really good idea and I agree with what you said about zoos. Barbxx
