SS589 Little Foxes


Happy Monday, peeps!  Happy Veteran's Day!  I am waaaaaay late today, too much going on this past weekend and stamp clubs today!  I did put together a card yesterday, only because I already had this cute little image stamped and colored, so I grabbed a scrap of striped paper, diecut my image and threw it all together to make a card:


The Sketch Saturday sketch worked great for me:


My little foxes (Unity A Foxy Christmas) were stamped in Cajun Craze, and I used some Arteza watercolor brushes to add some color and depth to the greenery behind them.  There's actually a little bird on the log too; I almost missed it!!  Hopefully you can see it there!  The paper I used is SU's Shimmery White.  I still need a little practice using those brushes, but it's fun to experiment!  I stamped a retired Papertrey sentiment (Signature Christmas) underneath in Mossy Meadow; there's a cute sentiment that comes with the Unity set, which I forgot about, otherwise I would have used it!  I added some sequins from my stash and it was done!  Easy!  I think next time I use this image, I'll add some darker eyes....they look a little vacant to me, LOL!


We are flying our flag today to honor our veterans...it's easy to remember that John was in the Navy, but I often forget that my dad was also in the army.  He didn't see any action, but I wish I could have thanked him for his service, but he never talked about it ever!!


Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Just as sweet a little later, LeAnne … those fox are just adorable, and I love the one on the left who seems a bit coy!
My Dad always said he was too young for the 1st, and too old for the 2nd - thank Goodness! But I do get to celebrate everything about him, because it is his birthday today!! and with 9 kids? he definitely served!! xx
