Default Sayings & Quotes - Raccoon

I need to make a card for my father and it has to have raccoons on it.
This spring when Dad brought his boat home from being parked outside at our farm, he discovered a raccoon had her litter in there, we weren't around but he managed to get all the raccoons out and release them, the mother and 8 little ones.
I have to decide which raccoons are going to be on my card.
I went through my Stampin' Up! stamp sets and found " Under the Stars" and "Wildlife Preserve" plus the fox builder punch can be converted to a raccoon, not sure if there are any other SU! sets.


Now I just need a saying to go with a Raccoon card, any ideas?

"May the forest be with you."

I remember a book I used to read when I was young about a raccoon named Rascal - any sentiment with 'rascal' in it would be cute... or anything about eating or stealing...?

I saw a card that had happy birthday...hope your day is full of surprises with the raccoon in the garbage can. Maybe you can put one on a boat?


I was looking at pinterest....often people just use regular sentiments it seems. But you look. You might get an idea...put in raccoon card.

If it's a birthday card...something about a time bandit would be cute. Anything about a mask would work, too.

the thought of nine lives came to me. i think your dad will just appreciate the image so even if you go with a regular phrase you will be ok. actually, i love the SU! phrase stamp (retired) "Kindness Matters"

Thank you to your dad for releasing them humanely. A friend of mine found a litter of raccoons in their shed and shot them all. Why she felt the need to tell me, I do not know.

Oh ya, everyone has there ways of dealing with stuff.

The card is for my Dad's 84th Birthday, he has definitely aged over the last year, but proud to say he recouped from major surgery from a year ago.


Thanks for the ideas!


I think may try doing a double slider card
