Hello Everyone..

Time off from work is hard when you cannot do too much..
I'm bored by nine in the morning and looking forward to lunch..AND IT'S ONLY DAY ONE...
I guess I'm just not used to sitting around...

At least I found a challenge while surfing and decided to have a go..

Less is More has a challenge going on with the theme "Little Creatures"..they don't care what the creature is as long as your card is CAS and has a little creature on it.


I made one..CAS and a little Squirrel..

This is from a rubber stamp set I've had for a long time "Firecracker Designs" by Pamela Clark.

No papers just green cardstock and a squiggle line for a frame.

The stamps set has many little forest animals...and tiny acorns,birds and things like that...
The sentiment "It's the little things"isI from the set with about 5 other sentiments.

Both images coloured with Faber Castell pencils and entering the challenge at..
 Less is more  [Little Creatures]

So Monday afternoon now and promise to go rest for an hour or two..I'm trying to be so good.

See you tomorrow..

It's funny isn't we all crave some down time and then when we are forced into taking some down time, we hate it !!, Luv Sam x
