There's A Critter In The House.

Happi Sister Vicki chose this weeks Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge, and she asks that you bring your critters on over to us ...whatever the critter, large or small. Pop to the blog and see the inspiration the other Happi Sisters have this week. 

Leigh merged two photo's here for me so I can show my stepper card's folds - clever isn't it. Thanks again Leigh. 

This image comes with it's own greeting of Hang In There, but I did this one myself as I wanted it as just the beginning of a sentence. This will be going to a young friend who is bedridden...she says she's hanging on when I ask how she is. I tell her to look for a small moment of joy in each day. Just bird song or a butterfly on your window can be enough to lift you - I know from my time being bedridden too.

My  Raffia lace was part of the candy I received from Debra at dj designs. I was so delighted with it and for once I'm not being stingy about using the way it looks on a project. That huge ric-rac is waste from a cardstock pack; and the butterflies are stickers.
  I adore this little fella...hanging on by his fingertips, but seeing joy in the cute little blue-bird. He's coloured with pro-markers. Not sure where I had my butterfly charm....if anyone recognises please let me know.
 Close Up of the greeting.

I cannot believe that after trying three times to comment on your card, and finally getting it posted, I signed the wrong name. LOL. I LOVE your card. You did an awesome job. (I've told you in the other posts what I liked individually.) The frog is adorable. I hope your friend loves the card and it cheers her up. Love, dj

Wow this is gorgeous! I love the little verse you have added, it is so true! Thanks for playing with us at The Crafty Pad, Texture Challenge this week. :)

Linda this is just gorgeous and I am sure your friend will love it. My therapist says that it is a really positive thing that even in your darkest days you can get a little bit of happiness from simple things in nature. When I see her on a Monday there is quite often a robin there and I just love seeing it and get quite distracted :)

That FDL nestie is a lovely design and the bright papers are a great addition.

Love Mandy xxx
