Foxy Misses You…..

Hello there. A little playtime in my craft room, and I have a cute little fox card to share:

After making the little fox up in the muted colours, knowing I wanted to use a dark grey card base, I then searched my stash for the heart stencil I just knew I had somewhere. After a few minutes, I searched the Color My Life app – there it was – a Thirsty Brush and Co stencil, Bingo.

I used Catherine Pooler’s ‘Sugared Lavender‘ ink and a blending brush to create the background, and used one of the ‘geode‘ dies from Concord & 9th. I did go looking for a heart die, but when I was searching the CML app – I saw this and thought it would make a different kind of shape….and would fit the card base better.

Before I stuck anything down on the card base, I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment from Simon says Stamp – I keep trying to remember to do this before I add anything to the base – sometimes I forget..!

I added the ‘geode’ die-cut, then the fox, and thought it looked a little plain – so I used the dies from MFT ‘Stitched Garden’ and Concord & 9th card-stock to create the flowers – and adhered as you see.

I made this card for a particular person – she is working more than full-time as a Matron at one of our hospitals, working all shifts, having to manage whatever is thrown at her – and that leaves very little time to connect. We obviously can’t meet each other in person – even at work – and sometimes it goes weeks without a moment to message or call each other………..she has been my bestie for the past 30 years – and I’m hoping we can reconnect soon………
