OWH Mid-week Throw Down - Cards 4 Kids

Now who doesn't love ants.   Okay, maybe not the real ones that crawl all over your picnic, but these cuties are friendly and love to celebrate birthdays!!!  The image is a pre-colored digital stamp from Doodle Pantry Stamps.  Their website is found HERE.



This friendly little puppy is perfect for any little boy or girl who loves dogs.   He is cut out from the Create-a-Critter Cricut cartridge.  The face was stamped with a Peachy Keen face stamp.  They are found on this SITE.

I am using an Action Wobble behind the puppy to give him some character.  Check out this short video that shows how he "wobbles".   You can click on the Action Wobble link on the side bar of my blog. (Sorry for the noise in the background, Adventures in Odyssey was louder than I thought when taping. :)  )

These cards were made for the Operation Write Home Mid-Week Throw Down - Cards for Kids.  Operation Write Home's blog is HERE.
