Frisky Squirrel Valentine


Jeanne here today!  Just having fun in my crafty space trying to escape the cold winter wind outside!  The Chicago area got hit heavy with snow yesterday and I'm more than happy to stay inside today and play!
I fell in love with the Grendon Wreath at first site.  So what could be more fun than a handful of little squirrels running along the edge playing games?  
The hearts behind the two squirrels in the center is from the Heart Word Balloon.  I just added a sprinkle of gems.
I cut the wreath from a natural cardstock panel.  I love the little flecks of wood fiber in the paper.  Next I matted that on a colored card stock panel.  I inserted a light green cut wreath and adhered it with a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen.   It's great for small close spaces.  I love the way the darker colored panel shows through the die cut holes.
The love word sentiment was cut from the Love Word Balloon die.  It was just the perfect size!  

I hope you're having a great day and have time to enjoy a sweet escape of your own!

This is super-cute! I love how you used the balloon dies in different ways. Love the wreath in green and the heart in the center with the squirrels. Thanks for sharing.
