Pals Blog Hop – Cute Critters with Kangaroo and Company!

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Cute Critters” – showcasing their card/project with adorable animals, birds, or insects for any occasion. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Simple card with Kangaroo and Company Stampin' Up! stamp set.

The critter I chose for this “Cute Critters” hop is the adorable kangaroo from the Kangaroo & Company stamp set. This set is so cute and economical. When you run the kangaroo through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, the pouch is cut so you can add the baby kangaroo, flowers, presents, hearts, or an envelope! The sentiments can be used for welcoming a baby, happy birthday, thank you, or just a note
