Thinking About Foxes & Weekly Deals

This post got away from me last week.  I mentioned last week was pretty tough.  My dad was in the hospital, we've been doing double race weekends, and I had stamp club.  I cut for four hours(!) for one project (*hanging head in shame*  This is an example of not being a smart demo.  I should have been smarter with designing, but I really, really wanted to do that project.)  Anywho, this post went out before I had even made the project.  I've been wanting to do it, but haven't had a moment to sit down and bang it out.  So I apologize for electronics having a mind of its own and prematurely posting for me.

So what does the fox say?  My daughter keeps asking me to play this video for her when I am working on the computer (she loves YouTube!).  In fact, she came home with a pocket book from school last week.  Here's the first few pages -

And an update - a CNN news story says they are now coming out with a children's book based on this video.  I told my daughter, and she responded unimpressed with, "I already wrote that book."  :/

With the current MDS Monday sketch, I thought it would be fun to make a silly card.  Don't know if anyone has done this yet...

The punch art design comes from Avery Murphy.  I used the background I created in MDS for the original card and swapped out the images for Lovely as a Tree.  I was a little rusty with the print and cut feature on my e-cutter (for the speech bubble), so it was a good refresher.

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree (MDS); Paper: Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Sweater Weather DSP; Ink: Whisper White craft; Accessories: Baked Brown Sugar ruffled ribbon, Lots o' punches, Woodgrain EF, Big Shot, Dimensionals.
