I think my favorite set out of this season's Stampin' Up! mini is the one I used today... Forest Friends! The little animals just make me smile! I really wanted to post a SUO (Stampin' Up! Only) card today so I didn't add any flocking to this little guy but boy did I want to! He only gets cuter with fuzz! Hee! Anyways, here is the card I did:

Although I love the little critters in this set, using them has been somewhat of a challenge because they are pretty small. I had to build a little home for the little deer so he wouldn't get lost on my card! I started by stamping the tree on white cardstock using my markers. Next, Painted in some grass blades around the tree and the bottom of the cardstock piece. After that, I inked up a corner of a piece of a Stampin' Sponge with Kiwi Kiss ink and sponged around the grass to give it some soft color. I added the blue sky the same way, only with Bashful Blue ink instead! I added the cut out deer with dimensionals so it looks like he's standing off to the side a little.
I've been busy working on a couple of projects that have deadlines coming up. One is my friend Mya's wedding invites which should be in the mail tomorrow! I can't wait to share them with you but I may wait until she sends them out as to not ruin the surprise for anyone... I am also working on class projects for Scrapdoodles this week! I'll share them for sure!
Hope you are all having a great Monday!!
