Just Us Girls #639 - Word Week

Word Week at Just Us Girls can be easy or difficult.  This week Nancy chose something easy for us.

I don't have a lot of critter stamps but I am partial to several Gerda Steiner ones I have so I used her darling squirrels on my card.

The tree from Altenew and everything else was masked so I could color the background with Distress Ink.  Then the images were colored with PolyChromos pencils.  The sentiment is from the same set.  I trimmed the panel and popped it up on my card base.

What mammal would you choose to make a card?  Let's go see what our guest designer Fran Wing and the rest of the Design Team thought to use.  It should be a gallery full of cute animals.

  1. Well this card could NOT be any more adorable. It's such a cute, happy card. I LOVE it@

  2. After living in a few places with these little guys, I know a bunch about squirrels! These two on yoru card are so playful and fun! What a cute scene! Made me smile as soon as I saw them!

  3. I'm not particularly fond of squirrels, but these are adorable. The one on the stump reminds me of the ones in my yard when they get to the bird seed. The acrobat reminds me of my grandson that loves to hang upside down on the bar. Cute card, my friend!

  4. Two cuties, Bobby! Beautifully colored!

  5. Cute little squirrels. Hubby doesn't have the same admiration as I do as he is not a fan or the hole digging critters, but perhaps he would like yours. LOL Enjoy your 4th!

  10. Adorable squirrels! I love watching them scurry around our yard. I love how you used the pencils to color them. That’s a medium I’m not good at. Such a cute card!
