Squirrel Mania for Friday the 13th

I'm on my Clean and Simple drive again today, and have 2 similar cards to share.  (I liked the first one so much that I made another with only a slight variation!)

These little LOTV squirrel critters are just the cutest and seemed to just cry out to be the centrepiece of the card.  I stitched the rectangle image panel onto some green card, and then embossed the square base card with Swiss Dots for some added interest.

Yup, they don't come much simpler than today's card.  I cased a fab card on Jen's blog.

By the way, can anyone confirm that this is a 'winter' image because hubby's first reaction was 'is that a birthday card?'.

It's definitely winter themed, right???

The first version (above) featured a strip of thin forest green ribbon across the bottom of the image panel, and the second version substituted green twine instead of the ribbon.

I think I actually prefer the twine version.

OMG, did I just say that I prefer twine to ribbon???

I'm off to wash out my mouth with soap.  :0)

Well, at the risk of having my mouth washed out too... I think I like the twine one too... but both are fab!! I THINK the image is a winter one... but not totally sure.. but aren't men nuisances... my lovely OH has a habit of saying stuff like that when I've slaved away.. but on the plus side, he is good for coming up with sentiments when I ask!

Lol, squirrels rule! See, told you they were addictive - CAS cards, not squirrels, although they could be! Both absolutely super hun, I am proud of you. As for the image, it would work well for an autumn or winter birthday. Hugs, the other squirrel xx
