Forever Friends

I am soooooo tired that my eyes feel like they have been sandpapered!  It's half term week which means not only is my boss on leave, it seems like 3/4s of the office are missing.  It has been Frantic, with a capital F, and it's still only Tuesday!

Anyhoo, here is a little card that I made at the weekend for the FOREVER FRIENDS MONTHLY CHALLENGE who have a theme for February of Animals and/or Butterflies and/or Birds - so I have an animal and two birds for you.


A lot of stamping on this one, but I loved it.  A while ago my mate Sarah was having a clear-out of stash and I was lucky enough to be able to buy this sweet sweet CC Designs rabbit stamp from her.  Oh so cute, but,  I notice now that I forgot to do his front paws!!  Ack!! (to quote Mary J).

The tufts of grass and the clouds are on one of those cube stamps that seem like a good idea at the time but I have small hands and usually end up dropping them, the sunshine is a Hero Arts stamp that I bought eons ago, and the two little birds are from the LOTV Geisha Girls companion set.  All stamped in Memento inks, with a splash or two of Distress Inks (ReInkers) for the hillocks, birds and bunny.  Matted with a contrasting paper from the scraps box.

Hugs, Squirrel xx
