Quick and Cute Koala

Here's a quick and cute card that I made using a Koala bear stamp from Whipper Snapper. So adorable. I can remember a few years of the San Antonio Zoo having a koala bear while I lived there. It's a very specific environment that these bear live in, which is of course, not all like San Antonio TX. They had to keep the poor guy in a well sealed temperature controlled room.  Guess when I was a kid it was so fascinating to see all of these wonderful animals in person, I didn't think about how hard it must be to remove all these animals from their natural habitats.

I do love this beautiful creatures, but I don't think they are nearly as friendly as they are cute and cuddly looking.  It's one of those admire from afar things :)

Have a great Sunday everyone.

  2. Oh dear Holley, who told you that about the Koala????? here in Australia they live in temperatures from -3C (the other day)) (winter) to plus 45C in the summer.
    They have a very thick wirey textured fur, but their claws are extremely sharp owing to the fact that they have to climb trees.They sleep about 22 hours per day and only come down to the ground to change from one tree to another.
    oh yes, by the way they have black noses. maybe this one has the flu??? lolol
