I heart Squirrels....


Well that has been a busy old week! Fortunately Friday is here - whoop!

Since moving to NYC, we have developed a big love for in StuyTown they are very tame and everyone feeds them nuts!

You might remember a few weeks back I submitted a card to the Northridge Publishing Cards blog and got a little prize. Well I saw the latest 'challenge / submission' request and I couldn't resist.

The challenge is to make a card using wood veneer..

Excellent, as I have just recently acquired some sheets of wood veneer paper.

I got busy and the main photo you see today is my finished card. The Squirrel I bought with my last prize from entering, I cut the leaves with my Silhouette and the sentiment sticker is by Recollections @ Michaels. The paper is by Pebbles and from their Lakeside stack.

I am SO pleased with my card - it's so fun, hence why I am posting it today, as it's a fun make for a Friday.

Have a great weekend.

  4. Catching up on this post and last as I've been 'missing' few days (busy at work)..super fun card yesterday and I love this cute squirrel card. I walk to work and part of it is across a park, where every day I see the squirrels scurrying about digging up the nuts they have buried. Over here they are often seen as pests, but I think they are way too cute not to like! Have a good weekend, Carole Z X
