Well Hello and Happy Friday!!  I have been battling bronchitis this week.  UGH!  (cough, cough) Today is the first day I have felt like doing anything.  Pretty sad when you don’t even feel like coloring. 🙁   But today I was able to get back to this fun little card I’d been making and glue everything together.  I am rather pleased with it.  Just don’t look to closely at the cutting. Patient I am not. 🙂

The woodland creatures are from Simply B Stamps.  I thought this card would be perfect for both SimplyB’s third anniversary and The Paper Shelter’s 100th blog challenge.  Congratulations to both!

CelebrationIt is an easel card with a couple of extra pieces.  I used this tutorial from Pam Sparks at Expressions with Heart. It is found here on YouTube.  You should check her out.
