Nuts about you

Hello on this wet and windy Friday - I am at home after work, looking through the new pokemon cards, whilst crafting lol.

I have made this card this evening, using mainly die-cuts:

So for this card I wanted to use the 'nuts about you' imagery for a Valentines card - hence the use of the squirrel. I originally thought I had bought a squirrel die, however when I looked it turned out to be a fox, so I had to really hunt through my stash. I finally found this pyramage guy that my mum had given me a while ago, so the card could go ahead. I also didn't want to use any designer papers, so I used a pearlescent white for the sentiment (Joanna Sheen die), a white card spritzed with pink Mica powder and a pink embossed paper (cut with Lea'bilities leaf nesting die). I also used some beige paper to cut some acorns (Marianne Designs die).

I followed Stella's Sketch #502:
Kort 'o' mania #169 Dies/punches
 CCM #181 Love, love, love
Creative Corner - Perfectly Pink
Animal Friends #47 No designer paper
C4C370 Squirrel
 Die Cuttin' Divas #302 Anything Goes

I planted my kitty cat yesterday - I couldn't bury her as the ground is just too soggy, so we decided to pop her in a plant pot instead. And here it is - Purrdy's memorial:
Hopefully it will become a fully floral creation in a few weeks time - and then I have some thyme to add into it once the weather becomes a little drier!

I also got my new cutter out , which I have not used as yet!

It cuts, scores and perforates too!

Thank you for looking at my blog,
