Lawn Fawn and Wee Memories Challenge

(This is my 3rd post today, so scroll down if you want!)

Lawn Fawn and Wee Memories have teamed up for a co-challenge, the theme is Cute &/or Cuddly" and if you don't have any Lawn Fawn stamps it's ok.

I am new to Lawn Fawn and very impressed with the quality of their stamps.  I used my only two sets to incorporate the sentiment into what I think is a cute card.

Paper: PTI Cardstock; Neenah Solar White
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Copic marker; Vintage Photo & Scattered Straw Distress Ink; Latte Chalk Ink (Hero Arts)
Stamps: Hero Arts (fox); Lawn Fawn (sentiment & Banner); PTI (plaid background on the fox)
Other: Nestabilitie die

I just love this little fox and the way she holds hercvhead! I stamped the fox twice.  Once I overstamped her with a plaid background from PTI's "Bitty Background Blocks"  using Latte chalk ink. The second image I basically coloured the tail end and the head piece with a Copic marker and then cut that out and glued it over the fox.

After stamping the banner I cut it out and mounted it on the card using dimensional strips.

This card is for my very special friend Lisa who lives three doors down from me.  I am not sure what our husbands think of us because we are constantly walking over to each other's houses to either share a card, show off some new stamps, and today, Lisa brought me over an Iced Chai Tea!  There are not many friends like that!  But, she does more than that, she is really "here" for me and I hope she feels the same about me. And with my hubby gone away to West Africa I am sure that she is going to be seeing a lot of me!!!

I encourage you to go over to the Lawnscaping and Wee Memories blogs and play along, it's fun!
