Foxy Critters.



Hello hello hello!

Thought it's finally time to talk about my current obsession... Woodland critters!

If you've been visiting for awhile, you know that last year it was Alice in Wonderland or anything tea-related.

This time, it's all about foxes, owls, and wood grain. My card today reflects them and I thought SOG's Foxy and the birdie and bunny from Gwen in Bloom were perfect. There's a little bit of chevron-like pattern here as well, which I'm very into too! And if you notice, there a gorgeous felt flower there in the corner from CatShy Crafts. Please join in here for my give-away.

Wanted to also show my love for mixing patterns and doing an unconventional scene. I submitted this card for SOG's DT call and sadly, I was not picked. I am beginning to think that being on the DT of my favorite stamp company is just not in the cards (no pun intended) for me, and I can't help but be disappointed. So sorry to be a sour puss but sometimes, a girl just needs to vent, y'know.

I do believe that things happen for a reason. I know with my kiddies, my job, and other obligations, I sometimes struggle to do my goal of three cards or posts a week. Maybe it isn't just meant to be right now. I have been concentrating on other projects including getting cards published and even scrapbooking. I'm even taking some colouring classes in the next couple of months -- I am sooooo excited about it that I even managed to add the "u" to make it sound fancier...LOL!

Oh, I digress! About critters... my son, O, had an awesome Woodland Critter 1st birthday party. I'll be posting about it soon! IT all started when Jo emailed me pics of this party and with the help of my sis, we came up with critters!

More to come!

Awww...sorry to hear you weren't selected for the DT. But things happen for a reason and you are definitely one busy Momma. Personally, I think this card is just adorable. Makes me want to get out some of MY critter stamps! Can't wait to see more photos of the birthday boy's party. I'm sure it was amazing!
