Squirrelfest 2014: you are one of a kind


Squirrel!!

I tell you, cracks me up every time.
cardstock:  mft steel grey, recollections white, papertrey ink vellum  stamps:  sweet stamp shop/cheeky & easily distracted, paper smooches fresh snow  ink:  black zing, copics  other:  mama elephant basic set/creative cuts, gold thread, studio calico woodgrain sequin stars, gold thread
The squirrel and squirrel sentiment are (retired) Sweet Stamp Shop, I know…I wish they weren’t retired!  The “You are one of a kind” is Paper Smooches.

I made a faux shaker.  Why faux?  I love vellum and I love heat embossing vellum but man, that stuff goes, well, squirrely.  I didn’t want to stitch down all four sides so I opt’d for the top & bottom, with gold thread.

I’m playing along with Emily’s Squirrelfest Challenge!

Here are today’s Christmas Cards:

cardstock:  papertrey ink black paper:  prima/coffee break  stamps:  neat & tangled/warm wishes  ink:  zing/white  other:  neat & tangled a lot to say nice & neat die
I tell you, Neat & Tangled’s Warm Wishes was MADE for that A Lot to Say die, dontcha think?  The patterned paper….Prima Coffee Break from Butterfly Reflections Ink!

I literally made all 3 cards this morning since I was up at 2:30!
