Possum.....or Porcupine??? You make the call!!


I had a lot of fun playing with my hangin' possums the other day! Such cute new images from High Hopes! So I thought I'd play with the Valentine possum at the mailbox!

I used Bashful Blue textured cardstock by SU for the square card base and the patterned paper is from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' kit. I stamped the image on Stamper's Select white cardstock by Papertrey in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and coloured him in using my Copic markers. Now this time, instead of using my gray markers on the little dude, I tried using some different browns. I think he looks so adorable....but maybe more like a porcupine than a possum. Emileigh agrees with me and thinks he's cute. What do YOU think??

Anyway, I added some large pewter eyelets by SU so I could thread the wide grosgrain ribbon through the image at the sides and I pop dotted the whole thing. I punched a bunch of hearts out of coordinating cardstock and stamped the sentiment by My Favorite Things on one of them. I also added some red Stickles on the little card hearts!!

Don't forget to enter Kimmie's Challenge #8 to win an adorable High Hopes stamp!

OMG...that is too funny. I have the same stamp and I thought he was a mouse with large feet> Now is it Porcuppine, Possum or mouse? LOL>

Ok, I have no "need" for possum stamps so just stop making cute things with them, LOL!
