In Honor of Squirrel Appreciation Day

I really need some challenges to get my mojo going!!!  So they have one going on over at Die Cuttin Divas in Honor of Squirrel Appreciation Day!!!  To cute!!  Great bunch of cards made to give you plenty of inspiration.  Well when I think of these little critters I always think of Create A Critter cartridge.  I made a shape card in the craftroom with the tree from this cartridge but hid the leaves on the tree because I wanted this to be a valentine tree and put hearts on it, which i punched out of various scraps I had.  A ittle doodling on the tree, some embossing on the trunk and a few bows from bakers twine and lets not forget some bling. This card will fit in a square envelope because I mostly hand deliver my valentines so no worry about postage.  I little squirrel is cut at 2.5 in layers and pop dotted it on the front. 

Now I usually dont do the insides of my cards but I decide this needed decorated a little and a sentiment inside so I used some more pattern paper and the sentiment is from a dollar stamp I purchased at M's.

Oh and i also decided to do the back!!!  One valentine complete and a special thankyou to Die Cuttin Divas for inspiring me to make this card!!
