Christmas Squirrel

I know I am early for Christmas but it is that time of year again where they are calling for Christmas Cards for Aussie troops serving overseas.  You will find more information here. A group of wonderful ladies including Tracey Hanshaw have, for the last 4 years (yes, this the 5th year) organised this terrific collection.

So all the christmas cards I have been making the past couple of months will heading to Tracey.

This card I started with brown linen texture then this wonderful spotted paper. The layer behind the squirrel is Bazzill Two Scoops. I dragged out my sewing machine and stitched around all the edges.  the sentitment is a rub on.  The 3D Paper Tole was from a small booklet from Blue Edge Crafts.

Well I am heading back to bed.  Typical, two days of school holidays and I feel like I finally have time to catch up on things and the dreaded cold/flu lurgy has caught me.  Yep, sore throat, headache and ringing in one ear.  Catch up with you al tomorrow.
