Cindy Vernon September 27, 2007 at 7:20 PM  

I guess I would have to say a monkey. My little one carries around a stuffed blue one all day long. What a cute set this looks to be. Very different from MFT's normal stuff.

Melissas September 27, 2007 at 7:52 PM  

I've been looking around for a great Wild Animal set, and I can't wait to see more! My favorite animal is definitely the elephant. Such soulful looks in their eyes, nad I love their lumbering walk.

Tracy September 27, 2007 at 8:02 PM  

Wow! Great cards and such a fun set. My favorite wild animal is the wolf :)

mibluidanglz September 27, 2007 at 8:08 PM

Jody L. September 27, 2007 at 9:30 PM  

Love the cards! I have an obsession with elephants. I collect elephant statues mostly small and they half to have the trunks up this is suppose to be good luck. Jody L.

I love monkeys! It was one of the first animal sounds my kids learned to make and my daughter makes the cutest sound! Gorgeous cards!

MANDEE September 28, 2007 at 7:14 AM  

THIS SET IS CUTE! I would say my favorite animal is a duck. I know that is kind of weird, but they just do there own thing and live there own life....They are pretty independent and make cute noises!

Becky Rusher September 28, 2007 at 8:23 AM  

This set is darling! Definitely a must-have! As for my favorite "wild" animal...that's a tough one, but I'd have to say the giraffe. They are new to our zoo, and the exhibit is amazing!

Kristina September 28, 2007 at 9:22 AM  

My favorite is the giraffe. Something about them draws me in! I did my first child's room in Noah's ark theme and then bought everything that had giraffe's on them!

Debi September 28, 2007 at 9:44 AM  

Love your cards! I must say that I think the giraffe is beautiful and seem so graceful of jungle-type animals.

Jenn Jones September 28, 2007 at 9:50 AM  

I love this set! my favorite animal...well I love monkeys! When I was little I always wanted a chimp like on BJ and the Bear so I could dress it up in clothes! :)

Anonymous September 28, 2007 at 10:07 AM  

My fav animal is a Penguin :) we have them all over my sons room! we even painted them on the walls!

Tina September 28, 2007 at 10:08 AM  

Great card! My favorite animal is the penguin, they are too cute. Thanks for the opportunity to play!

Cathy September 28, 2007 at 10:10 AM  

Wow what a cute stamp set you are sharing with your readers. Count me in! Love the cards you made with them. Thanks for a chance. Animal....I would say a monkey!

Maureen September 28, 2007 at 10:10 AM  

Wow!!! Beautiful cards!! Love the jungle set.. wish we could get these up here in Canada. I would say my favorite animal is a lion... I am SO a cat person ;)

Jana Weaver September 28, 2007 at 10:36 AM  

I'm going to tell you my daughter's favorite animal instead, because I know she's going to HAVE to have this set once she sees it (she's not quite 5!!) She loves Snow Leopards, and has a beanie baby one that she can't live without! Hope I win!! :-)

and thanks for the beautiful cards...I really can't wait to get this set!!

Beth M (ematson on SCS) September 28, 2007 at 10:36 AM  

Oh I'm lovin' the samples of this new set! Can't wait for the reveal. As for favorite wild animal I'm going with the tiger!

charity September 28, 2007 at 10:37 AM  

I would have to say a lion. They are huge majestic looking powerful. I think I like them too because both of my kids that was their first animal sound. we would say what does a lion say and they would give this very cute quiet little roar...absolutely adorable but nothing like the real thing :) thanks for a chance at some great blog candy. I have been looking for some animals like these!!

Momsnack September 28, 2007 at 10:38 AM  

What a cute set! I'd say my favorite is probably the giraffe - my den has a jungle theme with wallpaper border of zebra, giraffe, elephants, gazelles, etc.

Shutterbug September 28, 2007 at 10:44 AM  

cute set of stamps! Would teddy bears count as my favorite animal? I guess I could say bears, but it's the stufed version that I love.

canben September 28, 2007 at 11:12 AM  

My favorite land animal is the tiger. Water "animal" is dolphin!

Peggy Maier September 28, 2007 at 11:19 AM  

Horses are my favorite - have been since I was little. Never got one though! So sad...

Nancy September 28, 2007 at 11:31 AM  

Thanks for sharing in the fun! Great cards!! My favorite animal would be a leopard.

scfranson September 28, 2007 at 11:34 AM  

You have a wonderful blog. I love gorillas.

Anonymous September 28, 2007 at 11:35 AM  

love the cards! we have a jungle them for dd's room so picking one animal is hard. i'd say elephant, because it's an amazingly large creature.


Pattyjo September 28, 2007 at 11:36 AM  

Your cards are just adorable! That is such a cute stamp set! When I was growing up I always liked the Kangaroo best, because it always had a pouch with a cute little baby sticking out of it.
Awesome blog and I am going to look at the rest of your cards.

Taylor VanBruggen September 28, 2007 at 11:39 AM  

Love, love, love how you did the grass on the tall card! So cute and clever!

Reality Show Reject September 28, 2007 at 11:43 AM  

My favorite "wild" animal is Lions. They are just big ol' kitty cats! I want one for my home! DH refuses...big meanie! Thanks for the chance to win!

netty September 28, 2007 at 11:53 AM  

Awesome the pink in the elephant card...not a combo you would expect to see in a jungle card. I guess my favorite animal, in keeping with the jungle theme would be the giraffe. In fact I did my granddaughters birth announcements in giraffes...very cute if I do say so myself....

Thanks for the opportunity to play.

Brenda September 28, 2007 at 12:03 PM  

Your cards are amazing...what a great set!! My favorite jungle animal is the giraffe. Thanks for this chance to play...and win!

jodene September 28, 2007 at 12:36 PM  

This looks like a wonderful set. My favorite animal is the elephant. My grandma always said the elephant was lucky. Thanks for the chance!

kjbmusic September 28, 2007 at 12:49 PM  

What cute animals in this set. How fun. I love all the jungle animals. My kids love going to the zoo to see them all. There is something about the monkey that reminds me of my kids though. The way he takes food from others, jumps about and throws things he doesn't want. The monkey too..haha. Thanks for the chance to win!

SusanH September 28, 2007 at 1:09 PM  

Great set. My fav animal is the monkey. When I was little, instead of a teddy bear or doll, I carried a stuffed monkey everywhere I went, slept with it, ate with it, get the idea? His name was Zip. (he was a cutie!)

Angela September 28, 2007 at 1:19 PM  

My favorite jungle animal? I would have to say a monkey. They are so cute!!! We took a family vacation to Washington DC this summer and went to the National Zoo. They had little monkeys that were just roaming free through the trees. You never knew when one would be jumping right next to you!!! Lots of fun

Shelby September 28, 2007 at 1:33 PM  

This set is soooo cute! Great card, too. My favorite animal overall would have to be dogs. As far as jungle animals... well, probably elephants. They're just really fascinating.

doverdi September 28, 2007 at 1:54 PM  

oh...that's easy. My favorite jungle animal is and has always been the elephant. A close second would be a giraffe.

Kathi September 28, 2007 at 2:22 PM  

Adorable cards! Love monkeys but the lion is too cute! I'm a leo so lions always appeal to me.

Pat S. September 28, 2007 at 3:06 PM  

I love the new MFT samples! Thank you for a chance to win a set!!

My favorite animal is the giraffe. They are such an unusual shape and have blue tongues, but they also have the most beautiful eyes of any animal I have seen :)

Andrea Hays September 28, 2007 at 3:34 PM  

I love cats. Mine is a little persnickety at the moment, but I still love her. Thanks for the giveaway!

Pegg S September 28, 2007 at 4:23 PM  

I love elephants -- they are my favorite wild animal.... baby elephants are the cutest --- especially when they roll around in mud to cool off. It's almost too much to see them like that!!

Viv September 28, 2007 at 5:52 PM  

Adorable card! My favorite jungle animal is the lion! I'm a cat lover anyway, so he is it!!

stephanie September 28, 2007 at 7:00 PM  

wow, i was so excited about those animals that i clicked on the wrong comment section. I love these animals, and would love to be able to make a set of cards with the elephant for my friend who collects elephants.

Jan Scholl September 28, 2007 at 7:12 PM  

I love all animals which is why I am a vegetarian. But I have always been drawn to the giraffe. They are quiet, but so observant and intelligent. Thier eyes seem to see the world differently sometimes.

dasimonds September 28, 2007 at 7:57 PM  

I love the Giraffe!
Cute Cards. What a cute set of stamps.

Tami September 28, 2007 at 8:09 PM  

I LOVE monkeys! Very cute cards!!!

Monica-FC September 28, 2007 at 9:04 PM  

Ok, My favorite animals are the penquins and the deers. seeing those make me laugh as they are so funny to me and cute.

Julie Campbell September 28, 2007 at 9:08 PM  

Hmm... I think my favorite 'jungle-like' character are the monkeys that pick through each others fur and eat bugs... or whatever it is that they find in there! It's gross but hilarious!

SueB September 28, 2007 at 9:29 PM  

ooh - cute card, and I love the set, so I've got my fingers crossed!

my fav jungle animal's probably the hippo. I generally draw little sayings on my work buddy group b'day cards - hippo birdie two ewe ... in case you were wondering why!

later, alligator!

Seeking Simplicity September 28, 2007 at 9:32 PM  

The elephant is by far my most favorite animal. Their majesty, grace, devotion to offspring and mates, is very inspiring.

When I was a little girl I watched Tarzan every Saturday afternoon... perhaps that is why I'm so intriqued with elephants now... but I just do.

Thanks for having such a neat giveaway. Have a super weekend!

Angel Wilde September 29, 2007 at 4:17 AM  

Monkeys for me. My kids always liked them, but my godson LOVES them so I am always looking for monkeys!

Elaine September 29, 2007 at 8:31 AM  

Giraffe and zebra would be my favorites! And if the monkey is cute, then the monkey would be a fave too!! :)

Colleen, PA September 29, 2007 at 8:41 AM  

My favorite is the giraffe. I would kill for their long eyelashes... :)

Kristine September 29, 2007 at 8:42 AM  

What a cute set! My favourite would have to be the monkey.

rebecca September 29, 2007 at 11:50 AM  

My favorite would have to be hippopotamuses (hippopotamusii?). I like them because they make me look thinner than I am -- tee hee!

Amy September 29, 2007 at 11:12 PM  

Darling! My favorite is the elephant. They hear with their feet and there are just so many cute elephant images out there!
