Welcome to Die Cuttin Divas Tuesday Challenge!

Hi everyone! We enjoyed seeing all the wonderful projects everyone made for the last challenge. You have done an incredible job. We would love to welcome you back to another new challenge this week. 

Our new challenge this week is for the following: 
Squirrel Appreciation Day ... Let's use a squirrel on our project this week.

When : Always January 21st

Squirrel Appreciation Day is an opportunity to enjoy and appreciate your tree climbing, nut gathering neighborhood squirrels. It's held in mid-winter when food sources are scarce for squirrels and other wildlife. Sure, squirrels spent all fall gathering and "squirreling " away food. But, their supplies may not be enough. And, the variety of food is limited. So, give them an extra special treat today to supplement their winter diets.

We would love to see what project you can create that include this cute luttle critter. Be sure to include the name of the cartridge you used for your cut. Now onto showing you the card that I made. 

I made this cute friendly card that can be given for any occasion. I plan on giving it to my husband because when I showed him the card, the first thing he said was "Babe, I want that card." So I guess he will getting the card. For my card, I used one of my top favorite cartridges which is Create a Critter for the Squirrel. Then I used Give a Hoot Cartridge for the Trees. Also, thanks to one of your sponsors: Eyelet Outlet & Brads Company, I used their ladybug brads. Aren't they cute. For more info on how you can purchase some of these cute brads, please check out their link: http://www.eyeletoutlet.com/.

Materials Used:
Yellow Card Stock for card: 4.5 x 6.5

Create a Critter Cartridge: Squirrel Size 3.5
Give a Hoot Cartridge: Tree (2) Size 3.5
