Birthday Critters

Sharing a card that I made using the inspiration at Stamp Ink Paper.  Their challenge this week was four legged friends. 

I've long been a huge fan of my four-legged friends . . . have had a dog or cat, and usually multiples, in my life since Santa brought my first puppy when I was a kindergartner.   So I thought about those leftover supplies from my Simon Says Stamp kit that was all "holiday-ish".  I remembered the cat and dog stamps that came with the kit and thought, why not.  I can take those Christmas supplies and go all birthday mode. 

I steered clear of reds and greens in the coloring of my images.  Does it work?  I hope it works.  I tried a little something different and stamped on a scrap of the Bazzill dot paper, which is a dry embossed paper.  

Always love the detail a white pen will offer.  And the little guy on the right reminds me of a dog we had for 17 years that passed a little over a year ago. 

Love my four-legged friends. 

I hope you find some time to create!
