Now on to my project!! Here is what I made..

A school bus! This is so cute, I might just have to make another one for myself. All the animals are on their way to school with an apple for their teacher.

This was really easy to make... I cut the bus shape and then added the front and back of the bus with Jaded Blossom's Layered Journal die. I attached front and back panels with 1/4 in paper strips that I scored. The base to hold the lollipops inside is made with the journal die too.

The worm's apple is from Jaded Blossom's Fall Die set. The trim on the bus is cut with the boarder dies.  Below is a close up of the mouse bus driver.

Here is the other side, Rex the dog is carrying his apple in a dog bowl. The wheels on the bus (they go round and round) are from Jaded Blossom's Stitched Circle dies.

Here is the back of the bus... Miss Hedgehog is so cute in the window!

A lovable Skunk

Hello everyone! Today is my post over at the Stamp Annie Thing Blog.  My card today features the skunk from the lil series.  To make the background, I stamped the skunk and then cut out a mask with the same image. After I applied the mask, I inked the background with distress ink, Salty Ocean and Mowed Grass. The skunk is colored with Copic Markers.  One of the sentiment stamps is on a mini tag die from Jaded Blossom.

Hoppy Birthday Frog

Hello Everyone! Today is my post over at Jaded Blossom.  I found this adorable frog at the Silhouette Design Store and thought he would be super cute with Jaded Blossom Stamps.  The main sentiment is from Honey Bunny. The tag was made with the Stitched Circle Dies and Scalloped Circle Dies. I added a loop with some white twine so I could attached the tag to the handles.
The two stamps on the left are from Birthday Candies 2 and the one on right is from Forest Animal Candies.

Here is a closer look at the tag~
