Oh Happy Day

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  Caz Counsell our challenge hostess finishes off the month with one last challenge.

Last week the 21st was Squirrel appreciation Day!  Show your love for these furry critters, I you don’t have a squirrel use any one of your favourite ferries. 

I do have a squirrel stamp but as you can see by my card I didn't use it as I wanted to play with a new stamp set from Avery Elle that I received for Christmas. 

I created a pivot card using the Katie Label Pivot Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

The trees I had to cut by hand, but all the animals I was able to stamp and cut using my Scan N Cut. 

I created a cloud stencil by die cutting the cloud from the CountryScape Clouds & Grass die set and then used the stencil to create the clouds on the blue card using Picket Fence Distress Paint.

One of the things I love about this style of card is that you can even decorate the back of the card if you want as I did here.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
