I Always Feel Like Somebody's Watching Me.........

Isn't that a song? Well I do.........I always sense when someone is watching me. I was eating an apple when Snowball decided she needed to go outside. I opened the patio door and was standing there waiting for her, eating my apple. I felt eyes on me! I looked up and sure enough......two pairs of eyes were upon me!!! Would they pounce? Nah............just my backyard squirrels, relaxing in the patio roof overhang. I ate the apple, then tossed it to the rocks on the side of the patio to see what they'd do. YEP! Scavengers that they are, one jumped right down to inspect. And off he/she went to enjoy an afternoon snack. Happy Stamping & Knitting!

Sweet 16 needs quick gift!

Connor needed a gift and card to take to a friends 16th birthday dinner/party. Guys don't know what do get girls who are friends so he suggested cash. Easy! Cash is impersonal, but who doesn't like to get it...right?! So I went to my bin of scraps and grabbed some Greenhouse Gala dsp. I used the scallop border punch on Whisper White and them mounted the dsp to it. This was mounted onto a Chocolate Chip base card that was embossed with an embossing folder. For the sentiment, I created the words on my computer and printed onto WW cardstock. I used the large circle punch and cut it out. Then I ran sticky strip around the circle and then covered it with some scrunched ribbon I had in my ribbon stash. (non-SU) The large brown ribbon is a retired product that I hoard!!! I stamped the inside with the birthday phrase and cake. The can, is made from an empty fruit pop-top can that is covered with the same DSP. The flower is die cut and mounted onto the can. I added ribbon to the ring of the pop-top. (the can has filler and cash inside!) Happy Stamping & Knitting!
