Darcie stamps

Well my Brother in laws birthday was yesterday, asked my sister if he got this card and she said no.  Now I live in Southern Illinois, and my sister lives in Southern Michigan, you would think 3 days would be enough to get the card there, I guess I am going to have to get them out in the mail 4 days prior now. Can't imagine what it will be like if they quit delivering on Saturdays.

Ok enough complaining, this is from a set of Darcie stamps, looked all over the packaging and can't find a name of the set anywhere but did find this code, just incase your interested... JCS0158.


Squirrel and nut were colored with distress inks, let me tell you that nut is pretty small to cut out, I hope it stays on.  Memento ink on the trunk of the tree and chalk inks for the leaves.  All this was layered onto a piece of Basicgrey Basics white paper cut out with a spellbinders Labels Three die.

Base paper is G.C.D. Studios Loverly papers.

Sentiment is from the same Darcie stamp set and is on a Spellbinder Grommet tag die, used MM fall brads, and some twine from my LSS.  Inking around the paper and Kraft cardstock base.

It's a rainy and chilly 45 degrees right now...... Yuck, and Peanut doesn't like going out in the wet cold, she would rather be cuddled under her comforter.

I am almost done with my quilt that is for my Mother in law, but I will wait and share it until after she has seen it first :)

Thanks for stopping by,
Connie

Oh, dear, I haven't noticed any problem with the mail yet, but I worry about the future. It has always been such a reliable service. I think it's sad about the Post Office problems. Too much email, cell phones, and electronic banking. We live in a world where convenience is #1. Well, after all that, I must say your card is darling! Cute little tree and squirrel. Hey, I'm with Peanut. I'd rather be cuddled under my comforter when the alarm goes off at 6 am on a work day and it's raining outside.
