a small, crittery gang {mama elephant guest designer}

****this is my third and final post of the day!  Scroll down to see what else is new today****



I'm back with Mama Elephant to show off my cards made with the new "tree friends" set.

When Kryssi first emailed the images of the upcoming sets, I squealed a little when I saw this one.  It's right up my alley, being so cute 'n all... I already used it for my stampede day project, but I wanted to try a few different things for this post.

I can't even tell you how much I love this card.  That sentiment still makes me giggle.

I paired it with a fun triangle border, added some sequins and a wood veneer heart, and snickered at it some more.

I mean, c'mon - he's offering his friend an apple.  I die.

My next card is completely different:

embossed tree

I embossed the tree with some zing aqua embossing powder, and then dabbed in some color here and there with copic markers.

I stamped and cut out the little squirrel separately, so that I could add him over-top.

I love this sentiment - it is such a sweet saying, and the fonts are fantastic.  I know I'll be reaching for it quite a bit.  I accented the sentiment with some roughly-torn washi tape, and added a ribbon to the side of my card.

I hope you like what I've created with this set!
