Sparkle N Sprinkle Our Furry Friends Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Our Furry Friends blog hop! If you have come by way of Shanna's wonderful blog you are in the right place. If not, you might want to start at the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to be eligible for some great prizes! All animals, dog and cats, and insects are 15% off through the end of the month.


These cards were a lot of fun for me to make! I have gotten two indoor cats this year. I have never had any inside pets before and I am really enjoying their antics! I used the stamp set Scratchy 368 for my first two cards. Digger is having fun burying that bone! I loved using the new Mudd Puddles Brownie Bites for the dirt.


I could not resist using this dog who can't wait to lap up that ice cream!



For my third card I used the new Panda's Birthday 465 stampet set. These are so cute and playful!



And lastly I made an easel card using this sweet giraffe, Lofty. My designer friend gave me this safari paper and brads that go so well with him. Thanks so much, Marie!


Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have enjoyed hopping with us. I am the last designer on the hop, so I am taking you back to Sparkle N Sprinkle. Have a wonderful day!

Your Digger is so cute. His antics are quite realistic. I couldn't help but giggle. I know a puppy lover who could use a good giggle!
Thank you for sharing with us.

Wow April, you really did go wild on these cards. Each one so uniquely different. I think if I were to pick a favorite it would be the first one - hilarious! Love the Mudd Puddles too!

Donna Ellis said...

Digger is too funny! (but not if it is in your yard, right?) Are your indoor kitties young? Do they awaken you at night? Love the "pocket" ice cream cone card! It's perfect for that image, and reminds me of how our beloved pets run to the rescue if food is dropped LOL Thanks for sharing your fabulous cards, April! Each so unique and fun.

Wow, you've out done yourself! I never seem to think of making shaped cards, so I really like the first two you showcased! The ice cream cone is super cute!

Sue said...

WOWZERS April, you have been a busy gal! Each card so different and so nice. Love the puppy digging up the dirt, have some of that going on here right now... What a great array of samples, nicely done.

Fun shaped creations. I really love the ice cream cone. The dog house is fun too!

Verna Angerhofer said...

I so love all your cute critter cards. I have so much fun using those stamps sets myself and love the clever ways you used them as well. Thanks for the fun time hopping.

Brenda said...

The ice cream card is so cool! What a fun idea. Your little dog house is adorable too. The "bamboo" on the panda card is fun - my sister had shown me a card using that many years ago and I'd forgotten - great tip! Lofty is regal on his easel card too. Great job

Gerlinde said...

These are great, April! I think the ice cream cone is so unique and creative! But I do like them all!

Lots to see here, April. So many different cards its hard to chose which I like best. These are really fun and unusual. The ice cream cone is adorable, but so is the doggie house. And the pandas are cool too.

Debi said...

The doggie shaped cards are great but the panda and giraffe are my favs. Love the glitter on the panda card. And the giraffe's eyelashes just steal your heart. She's dahling!

The ice cream cone and doghouse shaped cards are really special. Giraffes are my favorite animals. The pandas look so cuddly.

Great cards, April. Very creative ideas. Love the little ice cream cone. Your little pandas are adorable and I really like how you added the strips of paint chips for bamboo.

Katy said...

These cards are so great! That panda card is so pretty! And the ice cream one-now that's just fun! :) I really like the one where the dog is digging too. :)

There is something so peaceful and calm about the panda bear card. Cute idea to put the dog licking the ice cream on a cone shaped
card with inserted message.
