Eeek! I Forgot!

Goodness it sure has been ages since I blogged.  I definitely need to remedy that.  Well my last post talked about Summer beginning.  Now I am here to tell you Summer is officially over.  The kids have been in school for almost a month now.  Adoree has started soccer and gymnastics.  Tyler has started Scouts, boot camp, and band.  I have church choir practice tonight.  So for me that means Summer has ended no matter what the weather is like!  I tell ya though I'm having a hard time getting back into the groove.  I totally missed my cousin's birthday!  Eek!  I was thinking there weren't any Sept. birthdays I needed to worry about.  So I know I needed to send her a belated birthday card.  I googled and saw a few cute squirrel cards so I set about to create my own.

I used the latest Case This Sketch #93

I love how simple this sketch was and how easy this card was to put together!  I was happy to finally use the Papertrey Ink My Punny Valentine which has the adorable squirrel, nut and the word "Nuts".  I hand wrote the word "oh".  I pressed the solid squirrel stamp into the Grid stamp to get the textured squirrel.  I added glossy accents to the stamped images to give them a little shine.  Some twine, ribbon and dew drops finishes the card.  

I actually have been making cards over the Summer.  I will share a few of those with you soon.  Thanks for stopping by!  Please come again!
