I Chews You

Alright, alright... The slacker finally updated her blog!! It's about time, huh? I'm gonna... I'M GONNA keep up with it this time. =) Things have been kinda rough around here the last couple of months, so what better way to relax then to go spend some quality time in you craft room, ay?

Recipe: S.U. Pink Pirouette CS and ink, S.U. Basic Brown CS, S.U. Crackle background stamp, S.U. Heart stamp from Small Sayings set, Beaver from DCWV Green Stack, S.U. Scalloped Circle Punch, and Creative Memories Circle cutting system.

I went to Joann's a couple of weeks ago, and I saw this little beaver and I JUST HAD TO have him. He is in a paper stack from DCWV, that's called the Green Stack. The rest of it is pretty cute too, but the Beaver single-handedly made the sale. I resisted the temptation at full price, but my co-worker just had to tell me on Wednesday that they had all their stuff at 40% off. Thanks to a good sale, I get to show all of you, just how cute he is!!

This one is a square card, I think it's all easy enough to figure out how I put it together. A couple of notes though: I cut out the beaver using my circle cutting template. You probably can't see it real well, but I used some Pink Pirouette ink to color in his belly a little (it was off white) just to tie the card together a bit better. I typed the font using my computer, and probably my favorite element of the card, (besides the beaver of course) is the little bite marks I made using just the edge of my scalloped circle punch. Although it's not pictured, I typed the inside sentiment too, using the same font, cardstock and brown ink, and it says "Wood you be my Valentine?"

Hope you like him!! I'm not going to want to part with this one. He's just too cute!!
