Happy Birthday Pet

Regular visitors to my blog (and I really do appreciate your visits) may remember that my daughter likes to make some pretty challenging 'orders' for cards, often at short notice.

So, most of the ideas on this card were my daughter's. She said she wanted a card with 'a guinea pig in a party hat and the words "happy birthday pet".  She chose the sentiment as a pun because (for my international visitors!) the friend it is for has moved to Newcastle (in the north of England), where 'pet' is used a term of endearment like darling or honey.

The guinea pig is a digi from a Serif  CD and I coloured it, and the sentiment, with Promarkers. The hat was cut on my Silhouette electronic cutter and I used an embossing folder too.

I'd like to enter:
Incy Wincy birthday wishes
Crafty Cardmakers  no patterned papers
Chocolate Coffee and Cards sentiment
QKR Stampede  use a diecut (hat)
Craft your Passion  anything goes

Wow, glad your daughter isn't the one providing us all with challenge themes. But somehow you always seem to meet her requirements, which is quite impressive. A guinea pig with a birthday hat, that's really cute and working well for a party themed card....

I absolutely love this card Marina. Your Guinea Pig image is adorable and so beautifully coloured. Great sentiment and the spotty yellow party hat is a fabulous addition. Thanks for joining us over at Crafty Cardmakers and more. Sally.x.
