Nuts About You Card


How's your week going?  Mine has been one without any schedule- the kids have been home from school because of teacher workdays and snow days all week!  I am just now realizing that it's already Thursday... lol!

Anyways, I have a fun card to share with you today!  I used the new Sweetheart Tails set by Newton's Nook Designs- I love the cute little squirrel!  Here is my card:

Nuts About You Card 1

I built up a pile of acorns for him to guard.  I masked off a few and stamped over them for a layered look.  Then I colored the pile with my Prismacolor pencils.  I've paired this cute guy with Teresa Collins Designs You Are My Happy Collection- the patterned paper is from the 6x6 pad.  Just for fun I added some sequins to this little guy's nut pile.

Nuts About You Card 2

I added a bit of pink twine from The Twinery and stamped my sentiment onto a label sticker to finish it off.  I love how each image in this set has a matching sentiment!  They are really cute!

Well, I better get my day started!  The girls have school today and I've got things to get done before the weekend gets here.  :)  

Thanks for popping by today!

Fantastic masking and love that you colored between, so at first glance it looked like you masked a lot more than you did, so smart!
