When (Guinea) Pigs Fly Set of Five Cards by Scrappyrat's Shop

When I saw the theme, Look to the Skies, I couldn't resist making some guinea pigs flutter up! Little pink wings take these guinea pigs on a flutter around the yard! The guinea pigs have been stamped, then I watercolored them by hand. Can't you just imagine the sound of their "Wheek Wheek" calls as they zoom through the air? In my etsy shop I have many items designated as charity benefit items with all the money I make from those particular items going directly to the EFA Charity of the Month. I am practically always working on items for rescues and other animal charities who contact me and ask that I make things for their auctions or other fund raisers. (I'm attaching a pic on one I just finished the other day for Second Chance Pet Adoptions.) It's something I really enjoy doing for these groups that request my items. I am also a foster volunteer for Carolina Pet Rescue ( I foster rodents and other small animals. Attached is a photo of Carrot, my most recent "graduate" who was adopted a few days ago. I think she's one of the cutest hamsters I've ever seen, and that's saying a lot because all hamsters are pretty darn cute to begin with.
