Happy Spring

Hi!  Here's a little card inspired by All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge which is a sketch and TGF's Farm Fresh Friday Spring Break challenge.

I used the sketch above to create the card below.

I used TGF's Forest Friends for the very first time!  I love TGF's animal stamps.  They are so cute!  Do forest animals need a spring break too?  I'm thinking they do so the deer is wishing the sleepy owl a happy spring.

The circle is cut from PTI's limitless layers die and stamped using Tag-its 1 and 2.  The deer is paper pieced in different layers so there is a lot of dimension on his body and head.  His eye and nose has liquid glaze too.  Butterflies from Martha Stewart punch.

The sleepy owl is also paper pieced.  I used my oval Coluzzle (do you remember that?) to cut his home and used a Tim Holtz embossing folder to create the tree/wood texture.  There is liquid glaze also on his eyes and beak.

I had a fun time with the sketch and I love how this card came out.  I was going through all the cards I've made wondering what to do with them when I realized that I'm kind of attached to some of them.  I really do love just sitting around at my crafting table making cards even if I don't have a specific person to give them to.  But I'm running out of space so hopefully I'll be able to send some cards to family and friends soon.

Thanks for reading!

So cute! Love all the polka dotted paper piecing! Ha ha, I still have a coluzzle too! Yes, you sure have made a lot of cards! I feel like such a slacker. I was up to 4 cards at one point and felt so productive.
