All Creatures Great and Small Blog Hop

Hello my Crafty Friends & Welcome to the All Creatures Great & Small Blog Hop hosted by...Misty!Here is why she wanted to start this Blog Hop....
Operation Write Home recently put out a call for kid friendly cards so that our hero’s could send cards home to their children. That got me to thinking, what is friendlier than a happy critter? I have been wanting to host a hop, and what better excuse? (Like we need one..Eh?) If you have been a follower of mine, you know I really DO love All Creatures Great & Small (& deadly). So I put out a call & we have 20 very talented ladies for you to visit today!
I hope to garner some ideas from here & I am sure you will too!

OH! I heard through the zoo grapevine, there will be candy along the way,

So be sure to leave lots of love ♥

So here is what I decided to make for this worthy cause.
First up is a cute little turtle. What makes him extra special is that he is on an action wobble. These little things are the greatest. They make me laugh everytime they wobble to and fro.

The turtle is from Create a Critter. I embossed the grass hills for a little texture. I printed the cloud paper on the Imagine. And I think the sentiment came from My Pink Stamper. Cute!
For my next card, I wanted to try a new product that I just got in the mail this week.

It is a new stamp line from Inky Antics called HoneyPOP. This set is called Easter Chick.
Isn't it so cute! (pay no attention to my horrible attempt at coloring. I am definitely NOT a stamper!) So you choose a stamp set and then choose your HoneyPOP color to use inside the card. I paired this cute little chick with some paper from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie line.
So much fun and it wasn't hard at all!
