Oh Rats! and cards


David's rats. It was hard to get decent pictures of them with the cage bars, etc.

Products used:
BoBunny papers
Doodlebug ric rac and glitter brad
Little Yellow Bicycle Felt Ribbon
KI Soup
American Craft flowers & stickers


These cards use the same papers (front and backs) for 2 totally different looks. They are based on the Operation Write Home Sketch #154 and even meet their "use flowers" challenge. I know it is early for a Mother's Day Card, but the rub-on was perfect for the card!

Love how you used the flower for the center of the card - very pretty addition. For OWH, it is NEVER to early for cards!!!

Your cards look great! I too like the flower in the center - it looks very fresh and spring like : ) I agree better to be a little early with cards for OWH than too late : )

Love that you used a flower for the center! Both cards are so bright and happy and remind me that spring will be coming!

Haha! I love your page! My boys are into obscure pets. "Just no spiders.." is my rule. Right now we have ferrets. It's amazing how strange fuzzy creatures can become such a fun and unexpected part of our lives. And our scrapbooks... ... Where was I? Oh, I stopped by to see your sketch cards! Well done! :)

Cute layout, and terrific cards Susan. I would have been scared to death to use such bold, patterned papers but you matched them beautifully. Your choice of flowers in the centers is great. Thanks for playing!
