Hello friends, and welcome back to my blog!  Today, The Squirrel Squad is back for our monthly(ish) hop where we bust out those old forgotten supplies that we just HAD to have and give them the love they deserve...or at least some of it.  This month we are using our mascot, the SQUIRREL with the addition of RAINBOW.

This card makes absolutely no sense, right?  Two squirrels, sitting on a rainbow made from different colors than the norm, gift giving an acorn, in the middle of the sky.  How did they even get up there?  Well, that is the magic of card making, where you can take your supplies and make what you want!  Speaking of supplies, let me share what mine were for this card:

Cloud Stencil - Recollections
Ink - Speckled Egg oxide, blended with a blending brush
Black ink - Versa Fine Nocturne
Squirrels/ acorn - Festive Tails die set by Lisa Jones & Sizzix
Rainbow - Happy Swish die by MFT
Sentiment - Thermo Web & Gina K Gnome for the Holidays card kit
Colored Cardstock - Recollections
Card Base - Accent Opaque

So, the unloved supply this time were the die sets.  I'm pretty sure I got the Sizzix dies at Hobby Lobby on clearance after Christmas last year, while the MFT die is more recent.  Hmmm, I guess you could include the stamp into the unloved category as well, as I don't think I ever used it until now.  It does seem to be a perfect fit for what I created though. 😊

Ok friends, here is the full hop list for you:

Boryana - skipping this month

I hope that you will take a short break from your busy day to hop along and see what the rest of the Squirrel Squad has created with our somewhat unusual prompts this month.  I am sure they knocked it out of the park, as they always do!  I know I can't wait to see!  Until next time,

💗 Stay Healthy, Take Care, and God Bless! 💗

  1. Super cute! I'm never going to question how squirrels get wherever they are! And if they want to share their nuts, good on 'em! I love this and I love the untraditional rainbow colors! Awesome job, my squirrel sister!

  2. It's a super cute card Marie ! And this scene makes total sense to me :p

  3. Who am I to question the eccentricities of squirrels?!? I'm thinking they are probably on a tree limb, *but* they are so in love it feels like they are souring through the sky on a rainbow. Since squirrels are probably somewhat color blind like how dogs only see a few colors, this is what they think rainbows look like! (My husband accuses me of playing devil's advocate all the time because I can make up possible explanations faster than quantum physics. Usually happens when the car in front of us is driving differently than he would... maybe they have a dog in the car, maybe they are trying not to tip over a birthday cake on the passenger seat, etc. 😅). I think your card is adorable Marie!!!

  4. Adorable card, Marie! I love that you didn't go with the traditional rainbow! The squirrel dies are so cute!
