Sieze the Birthday ~ ANIMALS

Are you ready to bring out some "critters" and make someone happy for their birthday?  Well our topping this time is all about "animals"!
I used Lil' Inkers stitched rectangle frames to make my frame and then stamped the sweet little paw prints all over it!  Don't you adore that cute little mouse as a wind up toy for the cat?  Hey I am just fine with wind up mice is the real ones I am not happy about having in my house!  And trust me, after we moved in we had plenty of them, I think we must have bulldozed their lodging, so they thought it would be okay to come inside...NOT!  I took care of that problem PRONTO...yes, ME!  My DH wouldn't touch the traps!

Please join us at Seize the Birthday 
we would love to see all your critters!

I wanted to show you all another card that my 11 (almost 12 year old) granddaughter made...she came up with the design herself and colored everything with copics...she is seriously good!  And she gave this card to one of her very best friends.  don't you love those party hats?  this certainly qualifies for the "critter"  challenge!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
