A for Animals - Midway Reminder

Hello everyone.  

We're half way through our A for Animals challenge, but before I share some mid-way inspiration from our fab teamies I can tell you that we have now selected our new DT members.  Thank you to everyone who applied, the entries were fantastic.  Everyone who applied should now have received an email to thank you for applying and saying if you were successful or not, and we're so sad that we could not choose everyone, but unfortunately we had to narrow it down.  In fact we had such a hard job selecting just 3, that we have actually chosen  5 new teamies to join us!   So, I hope that you'll welcome them all when we formally introduce them for their first challenge when they officially start next week!

In other news ... our super talented team leader, Samantha, has been having an early spring clean and the ABC Christmas challenge blog is getting a make-over during the next few days!  Pop back soon and collect our gorgeous NEW badges !!

Anyway, back to the task in hand, and today I am sharing with you the fab creations hoping to inspire you for our Current Challenge which is
