Grateful for a special friend

Hi everyone, I am determined to get back to a regular posting schedule soon! First in summer I was gone a lot, then my computer decided to crash. I'm almost all caught up and hope by October to be on schedule again :)

Anyways, hubby and I are heading out quading today but I had time to sneak down and create something before he got up so here it is.

I  have used some Pebbles Papers along with stamps from Reverse Confetti (Nuts About You and Lift Me Up)

I mounted the squirrel and stump from the Nuts About You stamp set on foam squares for some dimension. I also added a button from A Flair for Buttons - to mimic him holding an acorn :) 

I then added the little birdie from the Lift Me Up stamp set, fussy cut some leaves and added a die cut sentiment from my Silhouette. 

I just found out that one of my best friends (we don't live in the same city) is really obsessed with squirrels so I had to create a card to send to her... just because :)

Goodness, what an adorable card! You've pulled together very consistent details, keeping the cuteness factor strong, too - love it! Love that happy little squirrel! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

This is so cute, Laurel. That little squirrel looks fun and I really like your use of the pattern paper. The grateful uses a lovely font. I'm sure your friend will be so touched by your thoughtfulness. :)

I love the layers of pattern paper and OMG that stitching! Gorgeous card Laurel!

Awww how cute is this card? I noticed the quading comment immediately - love to hear of another outdoor-loving crafter out there! Often it's hard to do both the indoor and outdoor activities on the same day. Glad to hear you can squeeze some craft time in. Thank you for joining Sunday Stamps this week.
