Quirky Kangaroo


Hi my crafty friends! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend! I've been running around shopping for the local humane society. This time of year they are overflowing with cats and dogs in need of homes and as much as we really want to adopt or foster it is just too much stress on our Buddy so we do our best donating supplies whenever possible. 

I was really excited to see that one of the items on their wish list this month is a paper cutter because I've had a gullotine paper cutter on my craft room floor that I haven't touched since getting a rotary one so I'm happy to say that my gullotine paper cutter found a very good home today.


As for today's card, it features the digitally colored kangaroo image and patterned paper from the Quirky Kangaroo stamp set by Doodle Pantry. I paired it with Lavendar Lace and More Mustard cardstock from Stampin' Up. I embellished the card with white lace, grosgrain ribbon, punched flowers and lavendar rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
