Thankful Little Squirrels

Hi Crafty Friends,
I'm back with another DARLING NEW die from Kat Scrappiness! This one is called Give Thanks Sentiment with Shadow. I LOVE this font! You can also cut it apart and use just the "Thanks" or you can use it without the shadow. There are just so many options. I added these fun fall squirrels who are definitely thankful for their acorns.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you have squirrels where you live?
A: Me? In La Grange, IL they are everywhere. Although ours are brown, I have seen black ones in Michigan


 There is not much "process" to this card, I just inked the edges of all my die cuts with Distress Oxide Ground Espresso Ink. I really wanted to focus on the sentiment. Here are what the die cuts look like.

  3. I always love seeing your cards Meghan, because your coloring technique is wonderful...and the designs make me smile. I love the fall colors and adorable squirrels. Yes, we have squirrels here and we even have one that visits our backyard on a regular basis. My husband used to chase him away from the bird feeders but now we buy sunflower seeds just for him and put it in a separate area!

  4. Really cute fall card! Pretty colors!
    Yes on the squirrels... too many!

  8. That is a great sentiment die and those little squirrels fit the mood perfectly. Love how you die cut the sentiment from plaid.
