Freshly Made Sketches #146 – Squirrely XOXO


  • Stamps – 100 Proof Press “Chipmunk”, Hero Arts “Everyday Sayings”
  • Ranger Distress Inks – Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I created this simple card while out among squirrels of this kind. We went camping in Central Oregon and fed our squirrel and chipmunk friends throughout the weekend. I colored the torn cardstock with Distress Inks to match the colors around me and those I used in the chipmunk image. I used the latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches (#146) when I put this card together. I have been taken with torn paper edges lately–it seemed appropriate to tear and color the accents for a natural feel for this card. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.


This is a baby Golden Mantled Ground Squirrel. I discovered him hanging out with his sibling and Mom (?) right by our campsite. Mom was begging for nut handouts and sitting on our laps while munching peanuts. The baby was not nearly as brazen! Is it cute or what??
