I know I said it before, but 

This is my submission for My Pink Stamper's NSD Challenge #5 - Someone You Appreciate

Each time I make a new card for the additional challenge's, I think, "This one's my favorite so far."  
Believe me, I am really being challenged here too.  Are you?  I was staring at my Create A Critter cartridge and thinking about this challenge and how could I pull something together, and my sweetie hubby says, "You look like you're trying to do math."  LOL  I hate doing math.  I must have had that concentration look on my face thinking about how I could create a card for this challenge.  But I didn't hate doing this!  It's been so much fun today participating in everything!!  I sure hope you are also playing along.

Hubby, Tom, and little BonBon are sleeping, so I guess I'll cool it with the Cricut cutting for tonight.  But I will be back tomorrow participating in more of My Pink Stamper's challenges!  So glad she's giving us extended time to get them all in.

Stay dry!  Toodles, Janis
