Cute Critter

    This has to be one of the most adorable critters I've ever seen.  I did have a long discussion  with my neighbor about whether it was a skunk or a hedgehog but either way, it's pretty exotic and obviously, being a skunk won out.  :-D  The image is from Drawn by Krista.


     I colored with my ProMarkers, then die cut it with one of my Sue Wilson dies.  I made the background by cutting black CS with a die from Memory Box.  It's a stitched die but that's hard to see in the photo.  The delicate circles are a separate die, also by Memory Box, and those were cut from a scrap bit of CS which was on the desk.

     I used a bit of scrap, blue ribbon from my stash and added the burlap butterfly.  The critter himself defined the sentiment which is cut by hand.  Who can resist a cute little guy like that bringing flowers to his lady?

     Short post this morning but it's very late (or very early depending on how you look at the middle of the night!) and I have appointments in  the morning so I need some sleep.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Please continue to leave comments.  The "Word Verification" really isn't on.  BLOGGER INSISTS ON SHOWING THE "CAPTCHA" ICON BUT IF YOU IGNORE IT AND JUST PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT, IT WILL POST JUST FINE.  I WISH I COULD GET RID OF IT BUT THERE'S NO OPTION FOR THAT WHEN THE COMMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN A SEPARATE BOX.  SORRY.
