My Foxy Guy...

Good morning and happy Wednesday to you! It's been awhile since I posted anything. I've been experiencing the holiday blues, add to that the tragedy that happened in Newtown, CT, and well, I just haven't felt like playing in my craft room. But last night I told myself to stop channel surfing, get off the couch and just go create something. So I did. And I feel better. My mojo is coming back. Here's what I made:

The inside:

My hubby's birthday is Christmas Eve, so I made this for him. I apologize for the crappy pictures. My camera batteries died out on me, so I used my cell phone camera to take the pics. It's hard to see, but I also scored a design in the white parts of the card. I stamped the fox three times: on white card stock, beige card stock, and the rust colored patterned paper. Then I fussy cut, pieced him together, and added him using 3D foam squares.

I'm entering this for three challenges: Cas-ual Fridays challenge 82: use scoring in your design; Retro Sketches # 42; and for Drunken Stampers # 110: to use stripes.

Andy came in last night while I was making this card. I already had the card made and was piecing the fox together. But I had turned the card over so all he saw was a blank white card. He'll be surprised to find out that the fox I was working on was part of his birthday card! I'm sly that a fox! LOL! Sorry, sorry! Had to go there!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope that you have a great day!
