Critter Country and Deer Friends


Happy Easter!!!

Both of these images come from Artful INKables. Are these not the cutest ever??? The first one is a nutty treat bag with cashews as a treat (my personal favorite)! This was super easy to make and I love the colors and the paper. The ribbon actually came from an invitation to a wedding I just received (the things you don't throw away can always be used for 'something'). The squirrel and nut images were just what I had in mind when I made this! Oh, I ate all the cashews after I took the picture...I will have to fill the bag up again...

The second picture is a racoon on a tree stump...I colored with my Copic Ciao Markers and cut the images out...put them on dimensions to make it stand out. I colored the flowers, which by the way, I bought at Hobby Lobby as a flower spray and they were white, but with Copics I changed the colors of the flowers to match the background paper. I love the added lace to the circle. I used SU's Pretties Kit for the pearls and cut the sentiment with some curly scissors.

Coming This Wednesday...Artful INKables is having a New Release Blog Hop...Peeps...You really do not want to miss out on this...Kristin's images are amazing!!! She is so darn talented that she can go from cutesie animals to Beautiful Elegant images...You all have got to see these new releases...Ya know, I do not have to go on and on about Artful INKables, just because I am on the DT...(Go Me)...mainly because once you see these stamps, you are really gonna love them all.

Do not forget April 15th Wednesday...Blog Hop!

Again, wishing you all the most Blessed Easter...and thank you for the visit and all of your sweet comments. I hope you like what you see !
