Colorful Critters for the New Year

Happy New Year, friends!  I had a nice little bloggy break and ready to start the new year in crafty style.  I hope you're having a restful and relaxing first day of 2015.  The dust has finally settled from the holidays and I was able to play with my sneak peek items from the upcoming Spring Occasions catalog.  Here are the thank you cards I made for our daughter to send out:
The Colorful Critters stamp set was a last minute add to my order and I'm so glad I bought it.  These little guys and gals are so cute.  I paired them with a sentiment from Another Thank You photopolymer set--it was perfecetly sized to fit inside their signs.
Gotta show you a close up of these cuties.  I colored them with Blendabilities--here using two shades of Daffodil Delight.  My favorite thing is the little circles of blush I added with the lightest marker in the Skin Tone assortment.  Each little critter shows his heartfelt thanks with an itty bitty heart from the Owl Builder Punch.
I needed to leave a fair amount of room for DD's writing but I couldn't just leave it completely blank!  I stamped another critter and colored her exactly the same but, this time, used one of the sentiments that came with the set.  Describes our daughter's sentiment exactly!

Thanks for stopping by sure to come back on Sunday when we will return to regularly scheduled challenges at The Paper Players.  Enjoy your day!
