I'm Nuts for
"Just Nutty"!
I know it's a little early to be thinking about Fall yet (al-though I AM worn out with this hot, sticky air), but I just couldn't see using this adorable squirrel set, a new release from Clear Dollar Stamps available to all TOMORROW, without including an autumn-theme card! But this set is so versatile, you can even use it for Christmas and sure and check out the Clear Dollar webstore and let your imagination fly!

Stuff I used here includes Bazzill cardstock for the card itself (I ran the right edge through the CB machine with the Distressed Stripes envelope); Bazzill for the matted pieces behind our squirrel (these were cut & embossed with the scalloped squares Nestabilities); Scribble-Scrabble dp, Staz-On Timber Brown Ink for both the squirrel himself and for the sentiments; Copic markers, Frosted Lace Stickles glitter from Ranger; Lasting Impressions brads, Offray ribbons, and Stampin' Up's Word Window punch.

Ok, I know it's now 4 days later, but I can FINALLY finish up this post! Since I first began talking about this card last week, my son started football (real, TACKLE football, the kind that makes a Mom hold her breath for the entire duration of practice which, btw, is held EVERY SINGLE weeknight :-0). And my daughter has been preparing for, and then participating in, her final 4-H horse show of the season! The good news is I think we've finally got our evening routine and taxi system down for getting to the football field, plus will be no more horse shows till September (she did well enough this summer to make it to "Districts", which of course we're all pleased about, but thankfully we've got a little hiatus coming, during which I can stamp, stamp, stamp!).

But it looks like I've said all I need to say about this card anyhow! I thank you for stopping by and checking it out. And if I DID miss something, or if you have any questions about technique or product, please feel free to leave it in a post, or you can pm me anytime. And now I'm off to post another card, so be sure to visit again soon and let me know what you think!
