My Favorite Nut (Neat and Tangled release week)

Happy 2017! I don't know about you, but I stayed in pyjamas all day yesterday. Naps and Food Network binge-watching were a good way to start things off and recover from a very fun New Year's Eve.


Neat and Tangled's January release week starts today! We're showing off my new set, My Favorite Nut. So many of you were frustrated that our Stamptember collaboration set, Nuts About You sold out within hours of its release. I created this Valentine version just for you.

I did a quick watercolor on my card-base, using my daugther's Christmas watercolor set. ha.

Then, I stamped and colored the large acorn image with the cute little squirrel couple inside. I just love them! The sentiment was stamped into the blank acorn bottom, and I did scatter some acorns from the sold-out Stamptember set at the base.
