Susie Squirrel - 2 cards - one post

Hello and happy Monday!! I have two cards to share with you today.

The first card was actually made for the Sugar Bowl Sketch Challenge . I wanted to participate to win those markers, but you have to use Sugar Nellie stamps and I don't have any. I didn't realize that until my card was done.
The image is "Susie Squirrel in the rain" - if this will ever become a stamp, I think it will be without the rain. lol, then I'll have to rename the image. Lots of dimensionals were used to make it look 3D.
Recipe
Image: Susie Squirrel in the Rain, Stamps: Vases in Vogue -sentiments
Paper: DCWV celery textured, chocolate chip, pink pirroutte, certainly celery CS and prints designer Paper, Polka dots designer paper - source unknown, GP white card stock
Ink: Inkjet HP, chocolate chip
Accessories: copics, flower trio punch, brads, pink rhinestones, ribbon, paper piercing tool, paper clip, small oval punch, stickles.


The second card is made for FS101 challenge over on SCS JayDeKay was the featured Stamper. She has some really cute stuff in her gallery. This is the card I used for inspiration.
The image I used is another Susie Squirrel image "Susie Squirrel's romantic getaway" is what I call it. I asked hubby to draw a venice type image with 2 Squirrels, this is what it turned out to be. Cute, isn't it? I actually made a card with it before but with the image being larger. I made it smaller on my computer, this one appeals more to me.
