Joey Raccoon with Cupcake

Today's Purple Onion Designs card is from the set that I sent off to the lovely Michele to help promote the new Stacey Yakula release (although I'll admit that a few more images from the new release have since fallen into my shopping cart and winged their way across the pond, so you'll be seeing a few more yet!)

It's a really C&S style, with just a smidgeon of twine to create some interest and texture.  The papers are from a LOTV pad that I've had for a while. I've not used it much, but the colours seemed to really work with this image.  I thought it was quite masculine ... until I noticed the cupcake and added the bow.  Ho hum!

You've created a fabulous little scene on this card Annette.. looks so good!

You're going to have to excuse me from commenting on each and every card now... I'm having to be firm with myself as my commenting is taking up far too long of my crafting time and becoming a pressure... so am having to cut back. But I'll be around at least once or twice a week - well actually, not next week or the week after, when I'll be in Kefalonia!! LOL

Big hugs

A lovely card Annette, a great scene, Joey is so cute and I love your trees, I always find them so difficult to colour so might take your creation as inspiration! xx
