Perfect Sentiments Critter challenge

I made this cute little critter card for the Perfect Sentiments Challenge that is happening at the moment.  Their current challenge is:  Create a card with a sentiment for Christmas; include a critter somewhere on your card. We are looking for animals, bugs, mice, etc. Not humans. You can have a human on your card but, there must be evidence of a critter somewhere. For example: A little girl holding a puppy would work fine. Don't forget to include your sentiment on the front!

What a great challenge!  I am trying to build up a stash of Christmas cards this year so this was a great challenge for me.  I have admired this cute little penguin from the Create a Critter cartridge for a while now, but haven't had the chance to make him.  Isn't he adorable!

I was also chuffed to find out that my Happy Birthday to Moo card was chosen in the 'top 3' in the Perfect Sentiments challenge a couple of weeks ago.  Thanks! Our friend who received the card had a giggle when he opened it, but it was the children who thought it was hilarious!  Got to love a good pun!

The layout of this card was inspired by a card (or a sketch, I can't remember) that I saw on Pinterest.  I am busy trying to find the link now and will update this blog post when (or if) I find it.  Always so much inspiration on Pinterest!
Found it!  The link to the card that I copied is here.   Here is a direct link to her blog,  Stampin Shauna.   She has lots of beautiful cards with gorgeous stamping on them.  Definitely worth a visit to her blog if you are looking for some inspiration.  Thanks for inspiring me Shauna!
