Hey Foxy

Hey everyone! Ready for the weekend? I know I am!

CAS-ual Fridays has a new challenge:

Yep, it has to be one of my favorites--add real or faux stitching on a card. It's no secret that I love to sew on cards. :)

I've been dying to use my new Amuse stamps, and I was glad I had a chance to use them for the challenge: Do you ever have those moments where you come across a scrappy product and you *have* to have it? I had that moment when I saw the Hey Foxy stamps.

I die cut the fox, acorn, and leaves, and then I broke out my stamp positioner to stamp the images (they're cling stamps). I stitched a line to look like the leaves were falling and then another under the fox. Looking at the card, I wish the thread around the leaves was a different color. For the sentiment, I used a stamp from Simon Says Stamp.

Here's a close-up:

I want to squeeze him!
