Cute and Cuddly

Hello my blogging buddies, hope you are well this Thursday morning.

 We have a popular theme for you this month at


and it's

Cute and Cuddly

as usual there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs, the details of which are on the challenge blog.


My card was made with this challenge and Squirrel's Birthday in mind
 ( she was 25 plus P&P a few of weeks ago!!) and I knew I wanted to feature her namesake on her card so the WRS Squirrel on branch stamp was a perfect choice. It was coloured with SN pencils  and I was so happy as this was my best effort to date (I'm getting the hang of them now) . I used a tonic punch for the flower, a Marianne die for the leaves and the sentiment was a winnage from Oyster stamps. Ooh, nearly forgot the paper is WRS too Peach Blossom. We'd love you to join in with your cute and cuddly creations so hope to see you there!!
