Lawn Fawnatics #44 + Valentine Card Series #1

Hi friends! Today I've got a cute card to share with you for our newest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge: Happy Little Critters! This is also the kickoff of Day 1 of my Valentine Card Series and I'm supporting a new card drive this year, so I'll have all that information a little further down the post. 

For today's card I used the adorable new mini set I Love You (Calypsos) combined with Critters Down Under and Chit Chat
I colored my images with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the  matching dies. 

Then I die cut several pieces of cardstock with the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames to create a scene. I used a light blue for my sky, green for my grass, and white for the frame. The green I die cut with the Stitched Hillside Borders and then stamped my sentiment down at the bottom. 

I popped up my focal panel over some pink checked Gotta Have Gingham patterned paper, which I had trimmed down with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables.

I finished off the inside by stamping in Bubblegum ink which you can check out in the video. Click the YouTube icon to watch in HD, and don't forget to like and subscribe! It means so much.

As I mentioned at the beginning, I will be donating to a new card drive this Valentine season since the one I usually donated too is taking a year off due to a tragic fire and home rebuild. The Cards For Little Hearts Drive is another worthy cause that benefits children with congenital heart disease. Please do be sure to read through all the guidelines for submission and send in any cards before the deadline of January 31st. Cards must be RECEIVED by that date. I hope you'll join me in participating and blessing some wonderful kids!

And now its time to head over to the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog and check out the other amazing design team samples. Then you can create your own Happy Little Critter cards and play along! I can't wait to see what you come up with!


  1. Thanks for posting about an alternate card drive to participate in! I was so looking forward to the valentine's drive, and glad to find something else. After reading the guidelines, I realized that these cards are not supposed to be valentine's, although it is for happy heart month. Glad I looked! I hope to make a few cards. Can't wait to see the rest of your valentine's series. It is one of my favorites of yours!


Thank you so much for taking a few moments to brighten my day!
