Happy Friday, everyone! Yippee, the weekend is almost here! Some of you may remember the thank you card I did for one of DH’s customers, who gifted me with a cool cookbook, written by his “foxes”, frieda and Freddie. You can see the post here. Now apparently these foxes have an active lifestyle, as we recently got a birth announcement in the mail, along with this picture of a new little fox named Fala, added to our customer’s family:
Isn’t she a cutie? Well, of course, I had to send a congratulations card, and even though there is a cute little fox in a new stamp set in the catalog (which I ordered, of course) I couldn’t wait that long, I wanted to make one NOW:
I again used a Stampin’ Royalty sketch:
and the teddy bear from Every Little bit for my card. I matched it up with some retired DP from Nursery Nest, and of course, used my new Itty Bitty Banners stamp set & die for the sentiment:
I actually broke out my watercolor crayons, too, to color in the little bear. Normally I don’t recommend watercoloring on Whisper White, but since this image was so small and I was only using a small amount of water, it didn’t pill and colored quite nicely:
I also took the stitching out of the Blushing Bride pleated ribbon, ironed it and made a sweet little bow. I hope the new parents enjoy my card!!
Cassidy came to the house this morning sporting a cute little pony tail (which will be in tatters after her nap!):
Once she had selected her favorite DVD, she was a happy camper!!! Thanks for visiting today!
