Fat And Cuddly

Afternoon all - how's your day?  Do you have sunshine?  We do, but it is quite cool today, but lovely and bright.  Don't want to worry you but I did hear the weather man mention the S word as part of the forecast for the coming week.  Eeeek.

Anyhoo, I've been getting inky this afternoon and popped on to show this happy card I made - it wasn't intended for any challenges as I made it for the fun of it, but it does fit nicely for the Moving Along With The Times theme of Cute and Cuddly.

Yes, he's cute, yes, he's cuddly, but I also think he's just a teensy bit fat!!


Ingredients for this card:
Stamped Image  Lili of the Valley - Patchwork Daisy
Medium  Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers  Basic Grey Manilla (all distressed with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink)
Sentiment  Personal Impressions
Dies & Punches  EK Success daisy punch, Marianne Creatibles leaves
Extras  Card Candi

You may have noticed a small change my blog header, I've been trying to think of a name to "brand" my cards for sale and, because I paint with ink so much, Squirrel's Ink seemed to make sense, and it contracted to Squink quite nicely! 

Right then, time for me to get prepping some vegetables for dinner so I'll see's ya later.

Hugs Sxx.

Teddy bears are supposed to bit a little bit chubby so when you hug them it feels soft and warm. :P He's one very, very cute little fella. :D Hugs! xx

Boney bears are not my idea of cute and cuddy. Squ'ink. hee I can see the logo now... a cute squirrel dipping a brush into a little paint pot or ink bottle. =) Love the warm brownish pinks today. Perfect to stave off Jack Frost and hopefully send him, ever so reluctantly, back to the Winter Palace til next December.

He's not fat! He's fluffy! So... um... S-word, squirrels are going to fall from the sky!!!??? Wow, and here I thought plagues of locusts were bad... Cute card. Love the contrast of the printed backgrounds-which make me think architectual-and the pinks and flowers.

Squirrel said...

Oh.... such a pretty colour combo! I love your leaves - I may have to invest in that one once all my kit arrives. :-)

Thank you for leaping the branches over to my blog. I'm just about to update it with some pics of our garden. Not so crafty, since my paws have been full with the emulsion paint variety of craft lately, but still very squirrelly indeed.

I'm glad you're back on your paws again after the lurgy. Happy spring!
