Hi, Diane with you today.
This week our challenge theme is Squirrel-y Friends.
We were to make a friend card with the option of adding a squirrel/bird.

I stamped a sentiment from JustRite Seeds of Summer,
thinking it was a perfect friendship message.

I used 2 of the 6 dies from the
popping the outer edge up.

The branch is Impression Obsession Pine Branch.
After adding a few branches from Memory Box Meadowbird Branch,
I used a Snow Marker to add puffs of snow.
I am sure you have seen me use this before,
but if you are not familiar with it,
you just dab it on, heat it with a heat gun
and it puffs up, adding snowy dimension.

I also added a bird from the same Meadowbird branch set.
Here is a closeup of the bird.

To finish I cut a birdhouse from  Impression Obsession Birdhouse set,
and a squirrel from Impression Obsession Squirrel set.

A few gold sequins were added to finish.

Thank you for visiting with me today!
