So, my feisty little sister was having some fun with me yesterday by sending me the link for this sketch. It was not so much the sketch (though she ♥’s a good sketch) - rather it was the photo of the card this designer (Amy) chose to create.
Because I’m a “SQUIRREL” This she accused me of over the summer. Funnily, my good friend Janice was nicknamed this earlier this year, for about the same reasons. Being its fall I can see how one might draw some parallels. We have squirrels around our home and they are always busy and they get up to all sorts of trixty adventures.
I took to calling our particular “main” squirrel Shreddie (click his name to read more) because he decided he either liked or dis-liked our patio furniture and made it his main goal in life to eat the stuffing out of it. Worse, he one time ate the lines for our internet and we had to have an especial visit from Mr. fix-my-internet-or-I’ll DIE repairman.
Anyhow… after I got over my sister’s cruel taunting *snort* I told her I kinda really liked the sketch and she said we maybe should do it.
Here is the actual sketch From Seize The Sketch - and then my take on it:
Not so good of a photo. I prefer to take all my photos outdoors but yesterday was a RAIN day here in the (supposed to always be sunny) Okanagan Valley.
I don’t recall which company put out this lovely paper - the circles are glittery as you can see in the next photo. The flowers are from Creative Memories. They were a birthday gift from my friend Kendall, along with all sorts of other treasures I can’t wait to try.
I used my trusty Silhouette Cameo to cut and (silver) sketch pen this ribbon and sentiment.
