Lollipop Crafts Challenge #3

Wow! Second post today - is it gonna snow in Hawaii?!? Hahaha! I crack myself up ... anyhoo, Lollipop Crafts is having Challenge #3 this week and it's all about pets! Check out the details for this challenge here.

Before I get to my card, I'd like to share something with you ... my son has allergies to animals (as well as many other things) so we were never able to have a furry pet around the house. Recently his doctor said we could start exposing him to animals (and the other allergans) to get his immune system in check. So ... he just started volunteering at an animal hospital/shelter this week! He doesn't hate it ... but at least all his comments have been more positive than negative. Just today I got my tetanus shot so I can volunteer as well! Since we can't have a dog or cat in our home just yet, volunteering at the hospital/shelter is the next best thing! Don't you agree?

Ok, on to my card for the challenge. I went through my stamp collection and couldn't find a single stamp of a dog or cat that I wanted to use. So I decided to use my trusty old Cricut and the Create A Critter cartridge. Look at that little pet food bowl! So cute! I stamped the background paper with some clear stamps from a stamp set I found at Pricebusters. Hey, Kyoko, doesn't she look like your Bella?



I've had a productive day today and I feel like there's more I can create so I better hop to it! Thanks for stopping by and leaving all your wonderful and encouraging comments! I really appreciate your taking the time out to do so! Until next time, take care!
