Another Camping Critters Card

Hello everyone!  I'm going to start this out by saying that I LOVE my cats!  Now let me explain!  I had a special order for a birthday card from one of my husband's friends.  His wife called and wanted a card for her friend and she likes cats, wolves, tea, and the color purple!  No problem.  I made her card and she loved it but her husband had another idea of what he wanted for a card.  He requested a card for him to give of a wolf eating a cat?!?!  It is the oddest card request that I've ever received but coming from a guy, it didn't surprise me!  At first I said no because I didn't think I could do it.  Then after thinking about it, this is what I came up with for him to give to their friend!

He was thrilled with his card and so was the recipient.  They all got a good laugh out of it!  I used the same shape and background as the Park Ranger card I made a few weeks ago!  I really LOVE this Campin' Critters cartridge!  I am linking this up to Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday Campin' Critters Challenge!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Although I also love cats, I have to say that this card is perfect for the occasion!! How fun! I really like the shape as well. I got Campin' Critters in June and have used it only once (due to my crazy workload with school this semester). Your card is hilarious!
