Today’s cards use the adorable “Cheerful Critters” set by Stampin’ Up.


Had some fun playing with the sign that bear is holding up.


The “uncle” sentiment is held onto the main panel with a mini screw brad.  It can be rotated to reveal the happy birthday wish underneath.


Not sure if it was the critters that sold me on this set or this next sentiment.  Maybe a little bit of both.


These faces and expressions just make me smile.


On this last card I cut the sign off and decided that bear could hold up a banner instead.


Both the bear and the banner were fussy cut and adhered to a large die cut blossom which has been popped up on foam tape.


One or more of these cards are playing along in the following challenges:
