MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #451

It is time for another sketch challenge. For this challenge I got out those cute little squirrels. To think, I almost did not order them.

I am not sure if I am just channeling Autumn in early or just loving the whole squirrel thing. But the oranges, brown and dark creams just get me all excited.

Thank you for looking at my card.

MFT sketch challenge #449

Decided to take another shot at the MFT sketch Challenge since I just received my order in the mail.

I ordered the cute little squirrels. Anyone who knows me, knows I just love squirells. To some, they are furry rats, but to me that are cute whimsical critters with cute personalities. I once had a squirrel who lived in my backyard. I called him Mr. Beeve. He wasnt afraid of me and would sit on the edge of the bird feeder when I filled it with sunflower seeds. I was so tempted to touch him but decided to respect him. He use to have a partner and the two of them would chatter and chatter away. But sadly his girlfriend was killed by a car. So it was just me and Mr. Beeve for a long time.

The sketch this week looked easy but darn it, I did not have those great dies.

Maybe if I win, I can order them. So I made do with an older Blueprint set that had a half circle.

I had fun coloring these little guys while watching Season 4 of Outlander.

Inside is a cute little message. I never have enough birthday cards and I always forget to mail the cards out.

I decided to add this to the Simon Says Challenge since I am using a die cut.

MFT Weekly Sketch – 448

I have been trying to make cards again and I need something to get me into the mood. Looking at the weekly sketches gives me ideas to take out those stamps, dies and copics.

This week the sketch is a simple one.

I decided to go thru my MFT stash and see what image would work great with this layout.

I selected this very cute set called Polynesian Paradise.

To compliment the set I used the Echo Park “Best Summer Ever” paperpack.

Thought I would take on the Wednesday Sketch challenge from My Favorite things.

This week the sketch is this simple design

I had the Martini Time stamp set sitting on my desk for a while but thought I could make a simple but cute card.

Thank you for looking at my card.

Cheers!
