Forest friends and a little fungi

How cute are these little critters?!
As soon as I saw this "Forest Friends" set by The Greeting Farm, I knew I *needed* it!
Oh, and by the way.....I also ordered the "Forest Friends" from the SU mini catalog because I *needed* that one too!!
I colored my little lovelies with Copic markers and paper pieced the owls belly with the same orange polka dot paper that I used for the background. Once I had the deer and owl in place, I decided to add some sushi grass, flowers and little mushrooms from Hambo.

And as most of you know, every critter that enters my stamp room gets a good flocking!
For this one, I used some white velvet from Doodlebug.

Did I mention that I used a sketch for that card?
You know what that means right?
Since I was working off of a sketch, I also made a Christmas card.
Here it is....

For this one, I added a red rhinestone to the deers nose.
Instant Rudolph! I finished it off with some yummy red velvet ribbon and felt snowflakes.

Hope your having a happy day!
Lets cross our fingers that "Coach" gets voted off of Survivor tonight!
