Simply Said...Thank You

I love the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge so I decided to use the beaver this time for a thank you card I made the other day.  A friend of mine has given me tons of clothes (I mean bags and bags) for my daughter (Her daughter is almost a year ish older than my kiddo).  I am so appreciative and the clothes are so cute that I thought this little beaver would be the perfect card.

The cardstock I used is just a variety of scraps from my stash.  That is one of my favorite things about using my Ccricut, I can use up all those scraps that I just can't seem to part with.  I also was able to use the Cricut Craftroom.  That is a pretty neat program.  I had a bit of issues figuring things out, but I think the more I play, the easier it will be.  Just need to figure things out.

The log is sprayed with the Smooch spray from Stampin' Up! and the cardstock is inked around the edges to give some dimension with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.

The twine is from Doodle Bug and the flower is  felt flower from, I believe, Making Memories.

The sentiment is stamped with SU!'s Simple Said stamp set (retired) and again the Vintage Photo ink.

I have used a SU! white gel pen for the eyes and a bit of glossy accents on the toofers.
