SPRING CRITTERS for Freshly Made Sketches

CTMH has come out with thin cut dies that coordinate with the stamp sets.  This is one of those sets - Spring Critters (C1638 stamps and Z3207 dies).  I love the variety of little critters that are in the set - and the variety of sentiments that coordinate with them.  And, in one instance, I was able to just write my own greeting in the banner space provided!  I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for this card.

The background paper on all of the cards was in my stash - I remember buying it years ago when it was on clearance at one of the scrapbook stores, but had never made use of it.  The smaller print paper is from the new "Penelope" papers (X7207B) from CTMH, with cardstock that coordinates with the background piece.
This card will be part of my March Stamp Club groups.  It's nice that there are so many options that people can make a card that suits their needs.  It can be a friendly greeting like the little fox above, or a "Hoppy Birthday" wish as seen below.
Of course, March is also the month of Easter, so there are several options for that as well.
One other note - all of the critters are popped up with the thin spring, so they wobble!  Very fun.

"Hop" on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see the other cards created with this sketch.

If you are interested in making these cards with me next month, send me an email at scrappingailaz@gmail.com or watch this blog for an update.

Thanks for stopping by!
