For tonight's creation I used Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge.
I'm so grateful for Beate and all the talented gals out there in blogland who take the time to design these fabulous card layouts for the rest of us.
Since the design was done for me, all I had to do was pick out my stamps, colors, paper and embellishments. That done, this card took just a few minutes to put together! :)
You can't tell the size by the photo, but it is 3-1/4" x 6-1/2". (6-1/2" square folded in half) I really like this size and don't make it often. The "squirrely" paper is from a designer mat pad by K & Company. I've used this paper on several of my recent autumn cards. I *love* them all...even this squirrely one! :)
If you have time, be sure to check out Beate's blog "Fresh & Fun" to see all the incredibly beautiful samples using this sketch. You'll be impressed!
You know, I would really enjoy sending this "Happy Fall" ludic squirrel card to one of my special blog friends. If you would like to be the happy recipient, please leave a comment on this post by Friday and tell me what you like most about FALL. If there is more than one comment, I'll do a random draw and let you know who it is. :)
Now, I must apologize for giving sweet little lady bugs a bad rap in my previous post. I've been informed that what I thought was a lady bug infestation, was actually the "Asian Lady Beetle"! Who knew? Now I do. :)
Until tomorrow....keep smiling!
