Ya, so I wake up this morning and no school. No it's not a snow day. It is so cold outside you would freeze in minutes! When I woke up it was -16 out but with the windchill it was -35!!!!!!!!!!! Needless to say I haven't been out the door today. It is a whopping 4 degrees right now at almost 4:00 pm. I went to bed with a nasty headache and woke up with it this morning. It took half the day to get rid of it. I did stamp some. Nothing fancy, just one more of my hubby's many cards he requested. This one is for a guy though. For some reason masculine and I don't get along well. Give me flower stamps and I can go wild. I got this cute Papertrey Ink set for Valentines and thought it would be a cute Birthday stamp. It's called My Punny Valentine. I started with a creamy caramel base. The designer paper is from Stampin'Up! Sorry, I am being dumb and can't remember the name. I distressed the edges and then sewed it on. I did a layer of close to cocoa on the top and paper pierced around the edge. The sage shadow layer was put through my birthday folder in my cuttlebug. I used some caramel ink to sponge it a bit and make it stand out more. I used my nestabilities square dies to do the squirrel on. I inked him up in creamy caramel and then rolled the stamp in chocolate chip. I sewed around the edges of the square with my sewing machine. I added jute twine and pewter jumbo eyelets. Hope you like him.
