OWH Blog Skip: Cards with Critters!

Hello my OWH friends!  I am so glad you could join me for this super fun Groundhog's day Skip!  We are all about critters today and I can't wait to share with you what I created!  If you are joining me from the talented Nancy than you are in the right place!  If you would like to start at the beginning stop on over at OWH Stars and Stamps Blog and you will be right at the start of the skip.

I hope you enjoy my cards.  For the first one I used the fabulous Operation Write Home Sketch #152-- it was definitely a challenge for me!  I took a couple of liberties and added my own sentiment to it!  I think now I should have perhaps used a white scallop--it gets a bit lost but this baby is glued down!

Details: Cat cut from Create A Critter, Paper SU! and unknown DSP, sentiment from Pink By Design

For my second card I didn't use a sketch-- just kept it super simple so the die cut would pop and the sentiment would really make the card-- which I definitely think it does!  Please stop on over to the lovely and talented Mary Anne's as she is the next stop on the skip!

Details: 
Paper from SU! and Neenah Solar white
Die cut image from Miss Kate Cuttables
Sentiment from CardzTV Stamps
Ovals Punched with SU! punches

Marcia Gissiner said...

my favorite is the frog & the pun----makes me smile.

Deborah said...

These cards are so fun, I love them both! Googlie eyes on the frog and the pun really make me chuckle. Thanks for sharing.

Patricia said...

Your dimensional frog is too cute, and I like the punny sentiment. The wiggly eyes are the perfect finishing touch.
I also love your "cat's me-wow" pun and the darling kitty! I get what you're saying about the black scalloped circle disappearing into the background - maybe you could add whatever you put on the scallops near the corners of the squares (white gel pen, maybe?) to the rest of the scallops. Just an idea. But really, the card is fine the way it is.
Thanks for sharing your work with OWH! Your cards will definitely bring smiles to whoever sends them and receives them.

Ann said...

Love the frog. I like the simplicity of the layout and the fun sentiment. Thanks for sharing your cuteness.
PS - I love the shirt box in your post below. The basic design could be modified into a great card.

Nanette said...

Love this creativity. The black scallop helps the kitty and pink circle to stand out. Thanks for sharing!!

I agree -- both cards are adorable. I especially love the toad/frog with his googly eyes. TFS!

The frog is toadally cute! Say hello to St Cloud - my uncle had a farm there and my Mom is from New Ulm.

Ok, giggled out loud, well to be truthful it was more of a snort, at the froggie! How can you go wrong with that sentiment, and googlie eyes?! Still smiling........

Naomi said...

These are such CUTE cards! I've used the kitty before, but I haven't been able to get the impact that this card does. And I love the googlie eyes. These cards have me thinking more "dimensionally". Thank You!

Kathy said...

I like the sketch that you used for the kitty card. Frogs are my favorite so that card really interested me also. Great work and thanks for sharing.
