Isn't it cute?  It is the last of the cards I made for the kids while they were at camp.  I used the Cute Campfire cut, which you can find HERE.  The paper is from Recollections and the patterned paper is old CTMH.  The sentiment  is from Craftin Desert Divas "Destination Fun" set.  I LOVE that set.  You can buy it for yourself HERE.

Oh Snap!

Happy Sunday every one!  It's Michelle from Purple Monkey Moments.  It's my day to post over on the Craftin Desert Divas blog, and I have a super cute card to share with you today.  I used Tara's amazing Capture the Good Times stamp set AND Simply Said  set to create this card.  You can buy your own at the Craftin Desert Divas Store HERE.

The birthday Alligator is from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon.  You can find it HERE.   The patterned paper is from an old Cricut pad, as is the green cardstock.  The other cardstock is from Recollections.  

 I loved the idea of using an alligator or crocodile for the "oh snap!" sentiment.  I also love to combine my Craftin Desert Divas stamps to change or expand on the meaning of the sentiment.  I thought this was a cute combo. Below is a close up of my sentiment from Capture the Good Times, so you can see just how perfect the font is.

Below is a picture of both stamp sets.  They are both must haves!!
