Scraps Card #18 Cute Kiddy Valentine's

Finally...I have 2 hours of energy to make cards!  This pregnancy has been draining me of all energy and for the past few weeks I have been extremely sick.  I really missed doing what I love to do and also spending time with my family. The huge plus was my husband who did EVERYTHING around this house.  Thank the Lord for amazing husbands! Mine's a keeper.
I love the challenge this week over at Fantabulous Cricut.  It really made me think outside of the box with such a small surface to work with.  The challenge was to make a 3 x 3 Valentine's Day card.  Mix that with Create a Critter cartridge and some scraps that I have had lying around and this challenge was perfect for me and a no-fail!
My card base was 3 x 3,  mat 1 was 2 3/4" and the patterned paper mat (mat 2) was cut at 2 1/2".  I inked around the endges using a Studio G deep red ink. Every single piece of paper including the cricut cuts are from my scraps stash. 
The cricut cuts were various ones all cut at 2".  I used the zebra, bunny, hippo and skunk.  My favorite was the skunk.  I added some various bling hearts to each image and used pop up dots.
I entered these "cuties" in the following challenges
Paper Sundaes-Valentine's Challenge
Fantabulous Cricut-3x3 Valentine's
My Craft Spot-Anything Goes

  1. Awwww, these are just so darn cute! I *love* Create a Critter, and you have really demonstrated the cuteness that is this cartridge. :)

    Hope you're feeling better soon! I was super sick with both my pregnancies - I always wondered why they call it "morning sickness" when mine was "24-hour sickness"...for nine months. Whew! :)
