I'm nuts about you - Create a Critter

I made this Valentine's Day card for one of the many men if my life.  I haven't decided which one!  LOL!  Which happened to be the challenge this week over on Cricut Cardz to make a Valentine's Day card for a man.  Plus, I needed a card for a man.  I have a husband, a grown son, a teenage son, a five year old son and a four year old son and an 8 week old son (but I don't think I will worry about him this year!).

Another challenge I have recently been checking out and participating in when I can is Jitterbuggin Challenge.  This week's challenge was to make a Non-Traditional Valentine's Day Card with NO pink or red.  Go me!  Two challenges!  I really shouldn't be tooting my own horn.  I have seen people who complete 4-5 challenge with one card, layout, or project!  They just takes too much thinking and organizing for me! 

Here's what I came up with:

 I don't have the new Cricut Imagine by Provo Craft but I do have TONS of designer paper!

Squirrel was cut from Create a Critter at 3 1/2".

Card Base: SU River Rock  4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   Wild Wasabi 4" X 5 1/4", Early Expresso  4 1/8" X 5 3/8"
Other Cardstock / Paper:  SU Apple Cider DP, Really Rust, Early Expresso
Ink: SU Early Expresso
Stamps:  SU Teeny Tiny Wishes, Pink by Design "Go Green"
Accessories:  Cricut & Creat a Critter Cartridge,  SU word window & modern label puches, Wild Wasabi ribbon, Cuttlebug & D'Vine Swirl & Swiss Dots embossing folders

Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!
