Party Squirrel

Hi! I know you've missed me (wink!)...I've had a super busy week and I've been busy crafting, but unfortunately nothing I can share on my blog...yet.... I've been working on a few things to submit to a few publications, and of course am not allowed to share!

I also made the DT for the NEW Digital Challenge Blog, Digital Tuesday Challenge! I'm sooo excited to be part of such an amazing new DT! So I've been feverishly working on a thing or two for that also! Be sure to drop by there, there are challenges going on right now with prizes for the taking!

ANYWAY...I decided to join the "Just Christmas and Birthday Cards" blog challenge and they had a wonderful sketch this week (see photo below card). I've been a little shy on the masculine type cards, so thought I would do a card a little more masculine this week... I decided to use the Party Squirrel image from Digital Stamp Oasis, I colored him in with Copics and then added stickles to the balloons..the rest was just layering and tying...and for those wondering how I got two perfectly in-sync tears ... I used my tearing ruler from Creative Memories. Hope you enjoy!
