Nut's about this squirrel!

When I saw this image on Mo's Digital Pencil I literally gasped! I couldn't wait to get my hands on this adorable squirrel and no matter how bad my hand was hurting I was going to color it right away. It was just perfect for this weeks Mo's Digital Challenge too!


The image was printed on Neenah Solar Crest White Ultra Smooth cardstock and colored with Copics. I used some Winter Glitter on the snow under her feet. The tree design paper is Mellow from Basic Grey. The brown dot is from Bo Bunny and the red cardstock is Bazzill. The brown is some scraps so I am not sure who's it is. The leaf buttons I found at JoAnne's last week when they were having a buy one get one free. I just wish I had bought two packages of these leaves!

My hunting widow status began on Friday. No buck so far so hubby will probably spend most of Sunday in the woods...I might see him before work on Monday! It's a bit hectic with just the boys by myself with this crummy weather and being stuck in the house. We all did a bit of coloring Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Danielle!

Love what you've done with this Mo image! When Mo posted him, I thought of Wags 'n Whiskers myself and how lucky I am to be part of BOTH groups of talented ladies! Wish I could just paint and color ALL DAY LONG! ... so many images coming out @ the SAME time!

Everything just fell into place with this layout!
