Now on with the hop!  You should have arrived here from the talented  Connie’s blog!

My first critter is a sweet skunk who’s feeling a little under the weather. He’s got the sniffles and sneezes and a temperature…that stinks!  And that’s just what the sentiment inside the card says!

Woodland Critters-That Stinks wm 1

To make this card I used the Skunk and Medical Bears cut files from My Scrap Chick.  I happened upon a phenomenal deal they offered two years ago called, “Buy the Store”.  This year they offered a Pink Ticket which was an add-on to the original sale.  It was an incredible value, especially because their cut files are great quality.  I tried to find out from My Scrap Chick if they were having this sale again to give you a heads up to look for it, but despite three attempts I never did hear back from them 🙁

I wanted to mention a mistake which turned into an opportunity on this card.  I had intended to make it a 5″ x 7″ card when I cut the pieces for the front; but when I cut the card, I just did the usual and cut it to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  I could have cut another base, but tried allowing the pieces to extend off the top and sides and I really liked the look.  I will definitely try this again…on purpose.  One more thing I want to mention…that’s a real tissue sticking out of the tissue box…it’s Puffs Plus Aloe so it’s nice and soft on his little nose.

My next card is a Swing Easel card I first saw on Amanda Bates’ The Craft Spa and knew I just had to try it out.  I think it works out perfectly for this Moose, also from My Scrap Chick.

I knew I wanted rustic road signs, but couldn’t find any so I made my own.  The center sign I used for the greeting, the grass, clouds and mushrooms are from the Silhouette Design Store.   Amanda shared the tutorial for the Swing Easel card on her blog, but I made my own cut file and am happy to share it or convert it to a template for you, just leave me a comment with your e-mail address.

Next up a little water coloring using this delightful Mr. Foxy image from Polkadoodles.  If you haven’t heard of them, you really want to check them out.  I kept this card rather plain as I wanted the image to do the talking…What Does the Fox Say?  This card is going to be perfect for a friend who is a Wild Animal Rehabber… she’ll love it.

    I would love the template. Thank you for sharing. Great cards! I love the cute skunk card

      Michele, If it’s not already there, I will put it on the Hints, Tips & Tutorials page within the next day or so. I have to reduce it in size to fit on the pdf, so you will have to enlarge it before cutting. If you have a Silhouette, I can send you the actual cut file.
