Happy Groundhog Day!

I heard this morning that Punxsutawney Phil indeed saw his shadow - happy 6 more weeks of Winter!  Personally I think it's just the cutest ever - he's a charmer!  Those chubby cheeks, sweet little face and his warm furry fuzzy self - delightful :)  Of course, it's been in the 80's here and hot as blazes and I'm the one WISHING for Winter while most of the country is wishing it away!  Just remember: I have room by the pool if anyone wants to "trade" :)

And, I looked and looked but alas, no groundhog stamps here!  But I do have this equally adorable gopher stamp from Whipper Snapper - and he's ready to celebrate!  As he says ... "Gopher it!  It's your birthday!"  Hee hee! :)




I paired this funny lil guy with some festive paper which reminds me of a birthday party and kept the card pretty simple overall.  This is already on it's way in the mail to a dear friend and I just hope it survives the trip with all the buttons and 3d balloon and she knows that I had a fun time creating this one!

Be sure to stop back in tomorrow as I have a very punny Riley card to share with you!

Big Hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  10. Kelly this is absolutely adorable. I just love the pretty papers and the fabulously fun sentiment. We don't have ground hogs here in Australia, so you could have passed the gopher off as one and I wouldn't have known the difference as we don't have gophers either.....lol. I hope you have a fabulous weekend.

  18. Oh isn't this adorable?!? Everything about this card just makes me smile so wide -- from that darling little gopher to the papers, and of course that wonderfully punny greeting! Whoever gets this card is going to be so tickled!

  22. Too cute! I always feel a little sorry for Phil. Here he is all snug and warm and they pull him out in the winter air so that all these people can ask him if winter will be over soon. I can just hear him saying "HUMANS...why don't they just watch the weather channel and let me sleep!"
    Your little gopher is ready to party and your papers are so awesome! The sentiment is perfect too! Another wonderful Kelly card!
