Allsorts 429 - Forest Friends

It's Saturday again already, time for a new challenge at Allsorts. This week it's Tracy Mouse' turn to host and she'd like to see "Forest Friends". It had to be a simple card from me, because I currently suffer from some intense neck pain (probably caused by not being careful while painting my son's room which has some slanted walls - I need to remember I am over 40 now and need to be more careful...) The nights are the worst, but it's almost impossible for me to move my head any direction, especially up and down, so crafting (and most anything else) hurts at the moment.

Here is what I came up with.

I used a stamp from the Penny Black set Share a Hug. This set is currently still available in my Etsy shop (brand new) if you're interested.
Heat embossed on Bristol Vellum card stock and colored using Zig Clean Color pens. The pine needle stamp is from Just For Fun Rubberstamps. I randomly stamped it around the squirrels. Sentiment is from the Penny Black set So Very Much. I finished off the card by adding some jute twine and adhered to the soft sky card base. 

We have two fabulous prizes to give away again this week, hope you can join us for a chance to win!

Thanks so much for visiting! Have a great weekend!
