Challenge 46 | Critter Time

Critters!  We like them - I bet you do too!  Just make a card with a critter and some old stamps and you are golden!!  The definition of critters spurred quite the debate amongst the design team as to what a “critter” was. Ultimately we all agreed on any animal or bird. Which is basically anything non-human – right?

So be sure to give it a try and join us!!
