Happy Valentine's Day...

Hello friends!

After my guest spot with Purple Onion Designs ended last month I was invited to join their amazingly talented team as a regular design team member and of course I accepted! Any excuse to create more cards with all their cute critters is a good thing in my book. For my first official card I went with a Valentine theme featuring two nutty little squirrels, Pecan and Peanut. I simply couldn't resist Pecan holding that heart out to her sweetie. They are stamped using Inkon3 fade out ink, as is the Perch branch that I added at three different heights. This allowed me to really create a cohesive scene using the no-lines coloring technique. I wanted it to look like they are perched high up in a tree overlooking a peaceful river valley below... quite romantic, even for a couple of squirrels. LOL! And I finished the card off with one of the sentiments from the Essential Happy Sentiment set that can also be found at POD. Sure it may have a heart and even some pink but I think this still falls in line with the non-traditional Valentines I've been making lately. ;)

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you all have a lovely day!
