Animal Antics

It's all about Animal Antics at The Squirrel and The Fox.
 
Our sponsor, Sweet and Sassy Stamps, supplied the DT with images to create with and I'm using Santa Owl on my Christmas card. He's a cutie and I had fun putting this card together for someone special.
 
I used papers from Bo Bunny and Webster's Pages plus several dies. A holly brad with a bow made its way onto this card (its been in my stash for awhile) and you'll find liquid dots all over this card. I'm kind of on a roll to use up a few ;) of the supplies that have been lying around my crafty space. I made a commitment at the beginning of the year to not buy supplies that I did not need and borrowing a few paper packs I've kept it to expendables only. Good thing January 1st is just around the corner because I am ready for some new stuff. ;) Okay, back to my card-Verve Stamps helped me out with the tree die, snowflake stamped images and Merry Christmas sentiment. Spellbinders dies were used to cut all of the circles and the paper roses are by Recollections.

 Speaking of animal antics, my DD and I were at the zoo in Nashville today. We enjoyed watching this little guy who was perched on the edge of a barn loft door. He was quite a character and took no notice that his shells were landing in people's hair as they walked out of the barn. ;) For him it was all about a good meal and enjoying the crisp autumn air.
 
 
he is way up there, can you see him

 
 here's a better view, he totally blends with the siding of the barn
 
 
we saw some barn owls too but no antics for them today ;)
 
 
 
Click HERE to see all of the inspiration my teamie's came up with this week or click their links on my right sidebar. I look forward to seeing your paper creations and dropping by your blogs for a visit.
 
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
 
Hugs,

What a treat of a card - I love that zingy bright green adding a really modern twist to the traditional festive colours and the owl is a delight!

Love the actual owls too, as well as the daredevil squirrel!

Had a crazy work week on the back of the house move, so now looking forward to some catching up (crafting and sleeping) over the next few days.

Super cute! I love owls. Where we live, there are so many of them. And I love hearing them hoot at night. That's all the antics we get out of them!

I love owls and I love this colorful background you've made for this sweet image! I would never have thought of using red and green ink for snowflakes, but it actually works really well with this design! I think this is such a fun and cheerful Christmas card, Lisa!
