The freshman came home for the holiday and I am truly thankful that she's made a great adjustment to college. It was a joy to have her home, though the time just flew! Our Thanksgiving meal was delicious. We enjoyed both the meal and the post-meal movies!

This card was made last week, but I didn't get a chance to post it!

The squirrel and papers are from the Squirrels, Limited Edition kit - Blue that is available from the OPS store. Click here to go directly to it. "Thankful" is not included in the set, but is a wonderful size and good for both Thanksgiving and Thank You cards.

Thanks for visiting today!

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.

Love Match!

Here's another card using Irene's Fancy Flo Couple with some new "All Star" patterned paper and stickers from Flair Designs.

I masked the Flo Couple, added hand-drawn tennis togs, and clip-art tennis rackets. The image was colored with Copic markers.

Tee for Two

I can't resist a good pun, nor can I resist anything by Flair Designs since they go so well with Odd Bird Planet stamps!

This one features Irene's Fancy Flo Couple with the new On the Green patterned paper from the All Star Collection by Flair Designs. The golf clubs are clip art, the photo corners are cardstock stickers by Flair Designs, and the sentiment is QuicKutz. The images and the grass were colored with Copic pens. The golf clubs were colored with a silver Pentel Metallic Gel pen.

Check their qualifications, check their plans, check their history, check their choices, weigh your options, make your decision, then vote!

If you don't vote and don't like what ensues, imho you've lost your right to complain. Too bad, so sad.

So, naughty or nice? You choose and VOTE because unlike the card below, your action (or inaction) has consequences.
