Oh Rats!!!!! Twofer fun #4.....

Hello everybody: I have a couple of more cards for the awesome TWOFER CARD CHALLENGE #4. This time, the gals want to see cards with pets in them so, here are mine.

I personally never had a rat for a pet but I know that they are kept for that purpose by some people and the Katzelkraft rats are some of the cutest.
This image is from a stamp set called Les Rats de Ville and each image is just so darn fabulous.

Here are some individual pictures of my cards. The first one is a Birthday card, stamped with Stazon black ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils. The balloon is a die cut and the sentiments are from a retired Flourishes set called "Pinwheels and Popsicles".

This is how the INSIDE of this card looks like.


Sentiment is from Hero Arts called "Happy Today", fireworks from a set called PYROTECHNICS.

For my second card I made one that could be a Valentine or a "Just Because....." card.
The sentiment is from Penny Black and I think the words "this much" are from a set by "Your Next Stamp", but it's so old I really can't remember.
The grass and flowers are from Arts Impressions.

And this is how the INSIDE of this card looks like.

The sentiment and the little flowers in the corner are from a retired Flourishes set called "Picking Wild Flowers"

So I hope you like my Rat cards, I know my friend Sonny Peterson is going to be thrilled about this post, right my friend? 😉

Hugs from Maria.

Hi Maria. Both your cards are so fun. I love the bright colours and fantastic designs. I don't like rats, but the one on your cards is totally adorable! :) Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge!

Really great cards! The rats are pretty cool! I love the cloud sky you make in the background very nice blending!

I think you need to put that big orange cat on that RAT card ! That would be interesting !! GIGGLE

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, goodness, I love your rat cards too much! They're such great characters for card making. You've given their wide open arms and gleeful faces entirely different significance here. Love how you changed up the scenes. What fun, Maria!

I wouldn't want a pet rat but your cards make me smile! Adore how it's balancing on the swirly sentiment on your birthday card and the facial expression is perfect for a love card! Fun designs!
Thank you for joining us at the Twofer!

Very unique and, wow, you make having a rat as a pet look like a great idea, Maria! (Actually, the Mister tells me he had a pet white rat for a while in high school!) I got such a kick out of how you perched your birthday rat on top of the sediment! And I love how MUCH he is in love with the recipient in your second design! Great grounding and great insides, too!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #4! Hugs, Darnell
