Thanks for the ride!

It's shocking that I'm posting another card so soon. Wow! I can't believe it either.

I fell in love with the unmounted images from the new Squirrels, Limited Edition Kit and had to have it asap since I really like squirrels. They amaze me how persistent they are at getting to the birdseed in my "squirrel-proof" bird feeders and how clever they are in finding hiding places for their acorns, though I'd prefer if they didn't chew holes in my planters!

Anyways, I thought to myself, "Squirrels and gnomes live in the forest. See if you can get the new justjohanna Odd Bird Planet gnomes to somehow work with the squirrels." This card is my first take.

I used one of the squirrels and a sentiment from the Squirrels, Limited Edition Kit - Red with Kelly's Gnome Right. I masked off the gnome's legs and sat him upon the squirrel, drew legs and reins, and colored the images with Copic markers. The patterned paper is from a pad by Hot off the Press. It contains several woodsy papers that work well with the gnomes and squirrels. The background of the image and sentiment were stippled with Old Paper Distress ink, but it's not showing on the scan. Ah well.

Thanks for visiting today!
