A Turquoise Day



Had a bit of a turquoise day today, and it all started with a beaver!

Yep, a beaver - my boss, and friend, Emma texted me last night to ask if I could make a card for her eldest son who is in the Beavers.  What, do I ask, do I know about 7 year old boys, let alone beaver/cub/scout stuff?!  Anyway, I had a go and ...

I used the gorgeous Lili Of The Valley stamp of the little lad on a rope swing, coloured with Copics, backing paper is PaperMania, the text I did on the pc and I found the Beaver badges on the Scout site.

Then as I had the turquiose out, and it's a dear friend's favourite colour and it's her birthday on Thursday -


This super sweet image is by Buzzcraft (thank you Zippy darlin'), coloured with Copics, papers were in a goodie bag from Marcea (mwah), card is DCWV Brights, Nestabilities labels and Sizzlets corner dies, rope border peel-off from stash, sentiment is Penny Black.

Thanks for popping in.  Am whizzing over to see mum and dad this afternoon to see if I can get a little TLC over there as I'm still post-dental-blue (and with an infection).

Hugs, Squirrel xx
