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!

Inspired by Mrs B

Morning all, hope this finds you well, or getting better if you have been poorly.  There seem to be a lot of germs about already this "winter" and our office is rife with sore throats and coughs and colds, and the heating has only been on a week!  Thankfully I have managed to avoid it all so far, touch wood.

Now then, I don't know about you, but I get a lot of my inspiration from other crafters.  I have no shame in admitting it.  I visit their blogs and gaze for ages at their wonderful creations.  I have many sources of blog inspiration and one of them is the incredibly talented and all round wonderful Lorraine at Mrs B's Blog

So when I saw this card that Lorraine had made I just knew it was one I had to case in my own little way.

Here it is, it's not a patch on what Lorraine made

I have used LOTV Teddy With Penguin
Papers are LOTV/Nitwits Simple Joys and Frosty Christmas
Merry Christmas die from Memory Box
Papermania Glitter Dome gems

Hope you like it

Hugs, Squirrel xx

that image is too cute! gorgeous card x

Annette said...

It's lovely hun. That die really suits a perfect C&S style too.
And of course the cute cute cute image, I do love penguins and this little guy is just adorable. Love the shading on the bear. What colour DI do you use on your bears? I tend to use darks like Vintage Photo, but this is a lovely light colour perfect for a bear. My lights seem to look more orange when I've finished them, but yours still looks lovely and brown.

Once again I am playing catchup on your wonderful cards. I did follow that link and I did like the lady's card very much, but I still love yours better :o)

I really do like this with its fancy lettering. I have to say at first glance I thought those lines in the pattern were cuts, like you had cut up the greeting and very carefully pieced it back together. That would be fancy schmancy too.

Another fabulous card and image. I think I'll have to but some LOTV stamps soon
