Furry friend – just saying hello

Hi there crafty pals, how’s tricks?
Good I hope! I have been doing a little more creating in the craft den this week (YAY!) – I’ve actually been feeling a bit under the weather this past week, headachy and the like, so a self-imposed ban on screen-use after work (sorry, it means I’ve not been visiting your blogs too much, but it has been a relief not to be using the computer all day, and then lots of the evening too!) Instead… crafty time!

Here’s a card I made to enter into the new Tuesday Throwdown challenge #209 – Furry Little Friends

I have lots of animal stamps, but I don’t think this little foxy friend has ever seen ink (“I know?” <she said, in best Friends‘ Monica voice> What was I thinking?!!). He’s from the Lawn Fawn set ‘Critters in the Forest’ – I love so many of their adorable criters sets, but I just have to set myself some limits, otherwise the floorboards will give way, IYKWIM. I am trying to have a bit of a craftden clearout at the moment as the stash collection is starting to get  is already well and truly, out of hand. That’s a whole other story ;)

Anyway, I digress.. the cuteness of that foxy – yes, isn’t he so sweet? – coloured with pencils (I didn’t watercolour or blend too much, to try and get a nice texture finish to the fur.) Then fussycut and layered on Nesties labels 4 ;)

A bit more stamping… the designer background ‘Fabulous Flourish’ by Hero Arts on some patterned paper from my scraps box, plus embellished with plenty of sequins, a button and a fancy stick-on fabric rosette, which was by Papermania ages ago.

Thanks for stopping by crafty pals!
We are off to have a relaxing Bank Holiday weekend (including a day out at the races on Monday, which should be fun!) and hopefully a spot more crafty time in the mix too ;) Have a good weekend yourselves! Rx

    Oh Ruth, this is so adorable. Love that cute little critter, and your design is brilliant, the way you added your flourish to guide the eye up from your focal image to the rest of this amazing card. Your fabric flowers and buttons are lovely and add a lot to this wonderful card.
