It's a Squirrel

Good morning!

How's your week going? It's been a busy one here - I caught up with an old friend yesterday, we haven't seen each other in such a long time...We met many years ago dog walking. I had my GSD Holly and Ree had a Dalmatian called Moby... We walked together for years and then within 6 months of each other we sadly lost both our dogs.
It was good to catch up and I hope we will do it more often now.

So... I told you I was playing with water colour last week, well, here's another Thank You card on it's way to a blog friend over in the USA


Both the tree and the squirrel are stamps and dies from Stampendous...I only partially die cut the tree so I would have a base to paint


This is like one of our squirrels here in the UK, he just blends in to the trees ... And whilst I don't usually use ribbons, the pretty ribbon bow on here was tied around the gift I received so I put it to good use and it's heading right back to my friend...

I have club night tomorrow and it's a Valentines night so I have 20+ owl treat boxes prepared and 40 cards for them to make... It's taken me a few late nights I can tell you! But I know it will be good fun

Oh, and I made Top Pick over at Make My Monday and a Top Pick at Classy Cards n' Such this week ... doesn't get much better than that!

Well my crafting buddy Pat is due in a few hours so I'd better get on ... Enjoy your day

Take care

Like how you've only partially cut the rectangle die so that you can water colour below the tree. The pop of colour from the bow really works well and great re-cycling. Fun and adorable card. Congratulations on your well deserved wins x

We had a dog too, he had an accident eighteen years ago. Now we have a cat, Lewis (-;

Such a nice card, Ros! I used to put ribbon and bows on my cards, now I grab some bakers twine now an then. Your bow looks very pretty. Lovely squirrel and the watercolour technique is so well done!

Enjoy your evening with the ladies!

I can just see the little wheels turning in his mind about where he can look for a nice hidden nut to munch on. Super cute design Ros. Hope you have tons of fun with your class tomorrow night. Hugs!
