OWH Cards with Critters Groundhog's Day Skip

Welcome!  What fun to be taking part in OWH's Cards with Critters blog skip and thanks to Julie for organizing it!  You should've come from Erica's Scrappin' Intervention, after starting out at OWH's Stars and Stamps.  So, if you've missed either of those, just click on the links to go back. 

Although I didn't have any Groundhog stamps, I did have some critters. The first three, which I colored with my Copics, are Penny Black's adorable hedgehogs.  Which sort of sound like groundhogs.  :) 

These papers are from BoBunny.  Many times, for OWH, I'll leave the sentiment off, so the sender can use it for whatever occasion he or she prefers.  

This paper's from Lawn Fawn, and I printed the sentiment out from my computer. 

This happy paper's from Echo Park, and the fence is a Martha Stewart punch.

Going a little larger in the critter world, this final stamp is from Stampabilities.
The paper's from BoBunny, the sentiment is one of the OWH stamp sets from Hero Arts, who generously donates 25% of the profits from sales of the sets to OWH.  You can see them all here.  (But wait until after the skip to check them out, so you won't miss all the other cool cards coming up!) 

Next stop is the super talented Becca, at her Expressions blog. Just click on the link to see what she's come up with!  

Enjoy the rest of the skip and have a wonderful weekend!  I love reading and appreciate all comments!

xo,
JoAnn

JoAnn -- I love all of your cards -- I don't know if I can pick a favorite. The first one is so cute and really makes me think of spring - the bear with the sunflowers is really special too. I like the larger sunflower DSP you used. You did a great job coloring too. That is just not something I do well. Thanks for the inspiration.
