Caardvark's Sketchfest Thursday


Hey all,
Crazy day here. No time to breathe. Typing in short sentences. Gulp. Tryin' to catch my breath. ommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Ok, better now. It's day 5 in the sketchfest at Caardvark's(http://caardvarks.blogspot.com/2009/09/sketchfest-thursday.html). I am not totally happy with my card today, but that is probably because by Thursday I am brain-dead from work. UGH! The large circle is more orange in person and this scan makes it look red. I promise it looks better in person. I would do another card, but I just don't have time. Plus I am trying to listen to Grey's Anatomy at the same time. LOL I followed the sketch pretty much as is. I made a 5x5" square card from offwhite cardstock. I then embossed the orange cardstock with the Cuddlebug Leafy Branch folder. I cut the circle out with my circle cutting system from Creative Memories. I also cut a rectangle from patterned paper and rounded the corners. I attached the rectangle directly to the card. Then attached the circle and trimmed off the excess. I inked all the edges with brown ink. I then stamped the acorns with brown ink on white cardstock. I colored them with Copic markers and cut them out. I attached them to the edge of the circle as shown. I then attached the sticker of the squirrel. That's it. I will send this one to my nephew for his birthday coming up. Hopefully, he will get a kick out of it. I will probably say something about it being his birthday afterall (so he should go nuts! Get it? Ha!). Anyway, gotta go pack lunches for tomorrow and get some shut-eye. Nite-
Janet
