Cute Card Chipmunks -

I pulled myself away from my Sarah's... LOL just for a moment to make this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge. I decided I needed to pull out some other stamps that I love that haven't seen ink for a while.



Cornish Heritage Farms has a set of stamps called Kritters and they are just absolutely adorable. I mean how cute are these two guys? Perfect for the challenge this week of Animals only. Stamped and then colored with my Copic Markers, and white gel pen the detail of these stamps just pop and really are amazing.
The base of the card is pale green with a creme colored piece punched with one of the new Fiskar Border Corner punches then backed with pink to show off that fabulous punched card stock! These new border punches are amazing and so easy to use. The pattern paper is a scrap from my stash then embellished with Prima flowers, a Queen & Co. big brad and these totally cool metal corners! Are the beautiful or what, but lets just say this card will not be mailed... it ended up pretty heavy.
Donkey update.... Both Jazz and Patti are looking like are going to deliver any day - I have explained to both of them that I am over booked for the next three days and waiting until Tuesday would be great... they don't seem to care about my schedule and just want to get rid of the large mass of belly they are carrying in this horrible heat and humidity. Don't blame them, they look miserable. We have some storms in the forecast for next week, that is usually when they seem to deliver. So we are still on donkey watch and my life is hour to hour with all of my plans...
Well tonight is my midnight crop, then all day Saturday til midnight - Fun with friends but wow... I am gonna need lots of caffeine! Unless the Mommy's to be change my plans =)
Hope you all have something fun planned for this weekend too!
HUGS and-
