Valentine Critter


I hope you had a nice Easter - I did - lots of homemade ravioli and wedding soup; Italian classics. ;) 

Today I'm just sharing a card I made using this weeks Practical Scrappers challenge

Made this awhile back for my sisters boyfriend on Valentines Day. I asked my sister what kind of card she wanted, and she said "Well, something that reminds you of me."
Wow. Didn't know what I was gonna do with that until I saw my Prima rubons. 

So, how does it remind me of her? Well, she's little, she's girly (thus the huge pink bow),  and she's cute...most of the time ;) 
She asked me why the raccoon (instead of the other cute and little animals) - my reply "Well, because she has a mask, and you wear those cosmetic masks sometimes." That one just came off the top of my head - it really wasn't that (I just found the raccoon cuter than the others), but she laughed at the idea, and made sure to include it in her note. 

Anyways, I was Internet surfing when I saw THIS adorable kit...and check out THIS. I want them SO bad, but I'm on a scrapping diet. :( Maybe if I make another sale on Etsy...oh well, a girl can dream. ;)

Thanks for stopping in!
