The TGF Critter Crew blog hop and SFYTT too)!!




**Update: Jessica came across some problems with her internet so she's unable to play along today, so looks like the hop starts here! Jessica and Marie are giving away a FREE Digi Stamp to one random commenter on all of our blogs (Critter Crew Blogs) today! So leave a comment on this post and then hop on over to the other lovely ladies and leave them love too! I'll announce my winner Sunday Morning!**


If you loved yesterday's sneak peeks, you're sure to love everyone's cards today too! We have MORE TGF Critter Crew projects to share with you today! I couldn't decide which card to share with you today, so I decided to post BOTH! I just love these cuties. Irvin with a Sax is seriously the cutest owl IN THE WORLD!
Right? Check him out, playin' his Saxophone, just as cute as can be:)  
I used Boxer papers by Basic Gray, some Enchanted Evening paper and ribbon by PTI, and the fun sentiment from "Handwritten Notes" also by PTI. 

Here's my other card, which uses Jen's SFYTT for this week! First the LOVELY sketch:
And here is my card using another new Critter from the Crew, Harold Drums!

I used papers from Basic Gray's new line called Max and Whiskers! Isn't it fun? And Harold, he just breaks my heart:) I colored him with Copics and stamped the sentiment from "For Your Birthday" by SU!. The ribbon is also by SU!
Check out the rest of the SFYTT Sistah's for more inspiration using this sketch:

***Okay, now back to the TGF Critter Crew Blog Hop***

Your next stop is the incredibly talented HEATHER! I've seen her card and LOVE it! Go check her out! Here's a list of the blog hop order in case you get lost;) Remember to leave your comments on these blogs for your chance to win a free Marina Digi!!
