Nuts about squirrels!

I'm nuts about the squirrel stamps from the Squirrels, Limited Edition Kit from Odd Bird Planet!

This card features the tree-hugging squirrel, who likely has a fear of heights. It has one of the nutty sentiments from the kit. The patterned paper and ribbon also came with red version of the kit. Sweet!

I stamped the squirrel and the sentiment on patterned paper
and colored them with my Copics! I cut out the squirrel/tree image using my new Fiskar's Finger-tip Exacto thingy, which was recommended by Laura. Thanks Laura! I also used 1/16" eyelets. Yahoo. Two down, 539,003 to go!

There will be more squirrel cards to come, but I need to get crack-a-lackin' on those holiday cards too.

*Irony alert* -- the cute kitty on the right sometimes has an advertisement attached. They seem to run in rotation. But since I started posting more squirrel cards, the advertisement is for a gizmo to keep squirrels away from your bird-feeders. Hah!

Thanks for visiting!
