Welcome to Squirrel's slightly nutty world of rubber stamping, papercraft, cats, Formula 1 and a variety of other off-the-wall topics. It's fabulous to see you and I hope you enjoy your time here. Please do pop back and visit me again soon!

OK, I didn't anticipate being back again today (scroll down for earlier post) but Toad dropped it on me this morning that he needed a card for a colleague who is leaving this week!  When I asked if she had any particular likes the answer I got was dogs and flowers.  Right, thanks then.  So I had a rummage in my stamps and found this neglected little cutie from Elzybells:

I'd love a pup that cute!  Painted in distress inks. Basic Grey papers and Coordinations cardstock.  I tried to match the flowers to the one next to the kennel by using my retro flower punches.  Martha Stewart branch punch for leaves and LOTV New Job sentiment.

And while I had the inks out I had the urge to paint something just for the fun of it:

This little chap is Romeo from Lili Of The Valley.  Not sure what I'll do with him yet but I'll let you know what he ends up as.

A back to front day today - it's evening Mass, so dinner mid afternoon, and Canadian Grand Prix clashes with church so I'll have to record it and watch it later.  I'm all of a muddle!

Hugs, Sxx

Lovely card I expect she will be thrilled to receive it and maybe a bit tearful?
Love your colouring again of Romeo.
