A Squirrely "Hang in There" card

Hey, happy Saturday!
I'm just posting a fun card that I created today.  This one isn't going into any challenges.  It's just a card that came from an idea I had late yesterday.  I love this little squirrel stamp from Paper Smooches...and I finally bought some of those "wiggle" eyes at Michael's a couple of weeks ago!  So I just had to combine the two :)

Here he is...

I fussy cut the little squirrel and popped him up on dimensional adhesive, except his paws...they're glued to the patterned paper.  I attached the eyes with a dab of Glossy Accents.  This patterned paper is a discontinued pack from Stampin' Up!  It's so darn cute, I wish it was still available!  Love the clouds and birds on this particular piece of paper.

I'll be putting this card in my Etsy shop today.  There's a link to my shop in the upper right side bar, if you'd like to browse.
Thanks for taking a look today!


What's in it?
card stock: pool party, chocolate chip, close to cocoa (Stampin' Up!)
designer series paper: sweet pea (SU)
stamps: hang ups (Paper Smooches)
ink: basic black, close to cocoa, pumpkin pie (for his nose) (SU), Versamark

  4. Super cute! Love this fantastic fun card! I have bought googly eyes and love the look of them, but every time I go to put them on a card mine always looks wrong... I will definitely try again after seeing this!
