A Cute Little Critter

It seems like forever since I could make a card for some fun challenges. I made the decision to buy the Create a Critter because of this little guy. When I was visiting my granddaughter her mom told me that groundhogs were going to me her favorite animal. I think it has to do with Mom and Dad spending a year in New Zealand the year before they got married. I think he is so cute.

I used the colors from Color Throwdown this week. They are Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, and Mellow Moss. When I looked at the samples everyone had beautiful flowers and very pretty cards, but I thought they were great colors for my little friend.
I used a Peachy Keen Everyday Character stamp for his face. I embossed the card and panel with a SU EF and a CG EF. The little flower is a sticker. That is the challenge at Pile it On. The sketch is CPS card sketch 172. The inside liner is punched with a Martha Stewart boarder punch. I used some SU chalk and a white jel pen. The thank you is a Raisin Boat stamp. I stamped it on paper punched with a SU punched called Curly Lable Punch. Another challenge this card fits is Caardvarks, which is stamp and embossing.
Let me know what you think. I loved making this little guy and if you don't have a Cricut or would just like some to put on cards I would be happy to make some for you.

Thanks for stopping,
