Squirrel's Engagement

I found this card in a folder ..... must have forgotten to post it...

my daughter asked me to make an engagement card for her friend last September. She said her friend loves squirrels and so I said yes, I could work with that... a squirrel engagement card?

Anyway, after lots of searching I finally found a squirrel image that I liked on sliekje digi stamps.  A very talented lady named Angelique draws and paints and shares her delightful images. So thank you Angelique for the beautiful squirrel image! 

As it's an engagement card.... I used the image twice... flipping one of them. I cut away the acorn on one of them and added an engagement ring with little gem. I think Mrs Squirrel might have to wear this ring as a bracelet though? Lol. This was such a joy to colour. I've kept things very simple. Just added an embossed border and a computer generated sentiment. Looking at it now... wish that I'd drawn in a border on inside of the embossing... think it would have finished it off nicely! 





Well the weather here is a bit Autumny today! pouring down at the moment! I'm gonna have to go and put the top light on as I'm sat here in the dark!! Mum and I got caught in a big storm last Thursday. We had just stepped out of the doctors and it's only a short walk to the chemist.. but it waited for the moment we stepped out!! why does it do that!! good job we both had our raincoats on!

Hope it brightens up for Wimbledon! 
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday
Love and hugs

Such an adorable card Sue, those little squirrels are so cute and your simple design is perfect.
It was fine here all day but a little chilly - it's more like April than June, I do hope it warms up soon.
I hope you and your Mum are keeping well.
Take care.

Those little Squirrels are so cute Sue..Fabulous colouring and love the embossed frame..please send some rain over here..we are in Winter and no rain for months..afraid we will be starting spring in a drought if rain does not come soon..and with our hot Summers we will be in trouble.

This is stunning Sue, so clever how you have incorporated the squirrels. I love the embossed border, that is a great fit for the card theme. I was caught in a similar rain storm when I was home last week..I was soaked to the skin on my way to work on Thurs am! Hope you are well my friend. Cx
