Missing You Already...

Hi friends! Just dropping in with a card I made to share here on the blog. Gasp! I know that hasn't happened in quite some time, but after nearly completely clearing my plate of most of my crafty endeavors I finally had some time this past weekend to just sit down and create for fun. It was WONDERFUL!

Anyway, I used one of my favorite stamps called Stinkin Cute from Simon Says Stamp's newest releases. My kids call it a squirrel, but its actually a skunk. Isn't he cute?
Its a pretty easy card to create. I used Spellbinder's Card Creator dies to make the card and white base for the stamped image and sentiment. After stamping the skunk I colored him using water mixed with Artisan ink. Then I had to go over the white parts with a white Signo pen (mostly to cover up where I painted outside of the lines;) and lastly added pink to the hearts and pearl accents over the white spots. Then I made the "That Stinks" sign and hot glued it to a portion of a paper straw (never used those before on a card... kind of fun). To finish you simply embellish with some ribbon & trim.

Well that's it for this card. The girls & I are off to go see the new Monster's University movie... its $5 Tuesday at our theatre:) Hope you have a great one!
