The Squirrel and the Fox DT challenge #65 Autumn or Spring

Good morning, my lovelies! I hope the sun is shining for you today!

The Challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox is Autumn or Spring which is appropriate for crafters in both hemispheres at the moment!

Our sponsor is Sweet'n'Sassy Stamps and there is a great prize of 3 of their digis for the winner! The DT were fortunate enough to choose images to work with: this little mouse is Cocoa, isn't he cute?

I used Promarkers - for Cocoa's fur I dotted on the colours rather than using the normal circular mothions, to give the impression of fur. Unfortunately I can't find my list of colours I used - I knew it was a mistake to tidy my craft hovel! The blue bow has been Glossy Accented. The mat uses a Spellbinders Floral Oval die, and I distressed the edges with Worn Lipstick DI.

The papers were a freebie with a magazine some time ago and for a change I added them as triangles. The sentiment is by Penny Black, I thought it suited Cocoa and the big bunch of flowers! The ribbon is from Hobbycraft and the gems are from stash.

This challenge has come at just the right time, as a dear friend is going into hospital for an op soon, and I know she will love Cocoa! Thank you, Sweet'n'Sassy!

Go and see what my teamies have made - the post may be a wee bit late today as Linda has had electricity problems, but keep trying, there are some gorgeous creations over there!

Thanks for looking, and enjoy your Sunday!
