Mark's Finest Papers - http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.com/



Influenced by this pretty piece of Basic Grey design paper, I punched some flowers making use of these colors to be the scene behind my skunks. I just think these skunks are the cutest things. A funny story: I made a little mask from a post it note to make this card. The other day the mask must have fallen to the floor. I went in to my stamp room to stamp one of those early morning cards (the kind when you are still in your pajamas). Then I headed to the bathroom to take my bath to get my day going. I guess I didn't realize this mask had attached itself to the bottom of my foot. I got into my bath water, laid out to enjoy a morning soak and the next thing I know I find this little skunk floating on the water. I just had to laugh at how this little guy followed me around that morning.

The fern stamp I used for this also is a Mark's Finest Paper stamp from Chickadee and Fern set. I punched the little flowers with a mini flower punch.
