Big Alligator Birthday Wishes

Hi Crafty Friends,
I have a cute little alligator from the 2 Cute Ink Summer Critters set to share with you today! I used some alligator paper for my background and created a little beach scene for him to build his sandcastle.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Are there alligators where you live?
A: Me? No, I'm in a suburb of Chicago

  1. Oh, so cute. This reminds me of the animation from Olive The Other Reindeer movie. The faces are sideways. So cute. Anyway, NO. I have only seen them in the wild when we drove to a wildlife area in South Carolina several years ago. There was a couple outside their car, HANDING bread to an alligator. He would run at the man and snap at the bread. The man would run, laughing, and then go back and do it again and again. His wife was in the van saying,"Do it again, do it again". We couldn't believe it.

  4. Have alligators at the St. Louis Zoo
    and Aquarium. I'm in downstate
    Illinois so I could visit them.
    Love the background paper. Cute
    alligator. thanks for sharing

  5. Alligators and mermaid scales, perfect papers for that sand castle! Love his silly sidewise guy look, takes me a minute to figure out ear, nose or zit, tee hee. And.. nope!

  6. Cute image and card. Love the sand fun he's having. Nope no alligators in Washington state. Lot's of water but thank goodness none of those critters.

  7. Fun alligator beach card. No alligators by me but my son and his family see them quite frequently.

  8. Oh, wow, this is so beautiful! The paper is fabulous and I love the alligator.
