Critter Creations

So happy to be creating again!  I have two cards to share today.

First up, for Merry Monday and StampNation, is a card with gifts on it (the Merry Monday challenge), which also includes some critters for StampNation).  I got caught up in Copics for this challenge.  Nothing like coloring on a Saturday afternoon.

Hard to see, but I used three tiny red beads for the berries next to that bottom gift.  Also hard to see is the sparkly shimmer from Wink of Stella (love the wink!).   

Cute little pups!

Second up is my card for Paper Smooches.  The challenge this week was "anything goes", and since it includes a critter, I will submit it over at StampNation as well.  Here is a a sympathy card for the loss of a kitty using one of the newest dies in my collection.

 I love the background paper on this card, although after it was done I realized it was upside down.  Not that noticeable, and I've read that it adds a unique interest when the paper is upside down. 

Always fun to create on a Saturday afternoon.  I hope you found some time to create today!
