Get Well Soon

Happy Friday Everyone!
Before the weekend begins, I have a fun creation to share that I think would
bring a smile to the face of anyone who's a bit under the weather.
And goodness gracious ... there seems to be a lot
of people feeling like that these days ... COME ON SPRING!!

It's also my new inspiration sample for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.

Supplies needed:
White card stock base card.
Design paper of your choice.
Cheery Lynn Designs 'Birch Tree w/Cute Critters' #B370
Memory Box 'Curved Get Well Soon' #99356
 Martha Stewart 'bird' punch

 There are actually FIVE cute little critters with this Cheery Lynn Designs die!  Besides the owl and squirrel which I have used on today's card, it also die cuts a bunny, chipmunk and skunk!  Yep ... a skunk!  lol
I die cut it in white then colored my owl and squirrel with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

 I really enjoy the versatility of some dies ... like this Memory Box sentiment die.
You can die cut it and use it as I have done above ... or ...
color the part(s) that pop out and put them back in place.  A totally different look!
 Be sure to look at all your options when die cutting ...
you'll be pleasantly surprised when you 'think outside the box'!
