Crazy Like a Fox


It's going to be a little bit crazy around here for the next few days but wanted to slide this foxy card in to enter in The Alley Way Stamps challenge.  The fox and sentiment are from The Alley Way Stamps.  I started out with a Kraft base and added some DP from My Minds Eye and some from an unknown source.  The little fox is popped up and colored with Copics.  Several rhinestones were added along with the twine.





Now, back to the craziness.......My daughter and her crew will be here later today and then tomorrow we celebrate Thanksgiving.  More company coming in then.  We should have a houseful and lots to eat!  Friday will probably mean a trip to the city to take the granddaughters on a little shopping trip - but not Black Friday early -  and then Saturday they head back home. Later that day Jim's sons and their families will hit.  By Sunday I'll be ready for the funny farm and yes.....crazy like a fox!  (I really don't know what that means though since I've never seen a crazy fox!).  I'll pop in on your blog when, and if, I get a chance - and will see you again when I see you!  If you celebrate Thanksgiving I hope you have a wonderful day.

Thanks for stopping by..........
Lynn

Lynn, your fox card is just too cute. I guess "crazy like a fox" really means you're a sly one. :-)
It sounds as if things will be hectic around your house, but a good hectic. Enjoy all the family and fun times. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'll be away from my blog for several days, too.

I've seen a crazy fox and this one is NOT crazy just adorable. I love the fauz stitching all around your card. The papers, twine and rhinestones help bring you little fox to the forefront. I wish you a great Thanksgiving (crazy time) with all involved.
Hugs,
Donna

Hi Lynn,
Such a super colour combo. I love kraft with orange and the fox is coloured in so well.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and I am grateful to have you as a blog buddy. And thank you for that wonderful parcel you sent me with stamps to last me until my next lifetime...
I hope you survive the onslaught well.
Love,
M

I know that kind of crazy, Lynn! Mine starts at 2pm today. I get to go to work, and fight off people who do not understand why your store is closing early. Well hello, we have to decorate and make it look like Santa had an explosion, for Black Friday morning! Yes, we can not go home until it is done. Then the family arrives in the early morning. More family on Saturday! That adorable fox is me!!!!! Love him. Happy Holiday!

Foxes are so on trend at the moment so this is one trendy card...but most important what does the fox say???

How on earth you had time to make this adorable card is just beyond me, with all you have going on. It made me smile (and I loved the stitching too!) Such a cheery colorway - perfect for your Mr. C.

Oh he's a cutie, Lynn! Great paper choice! Have fun with the festivities!!!

Marilyn said...

Cute as a.... fox! hahahaha... this really is cute Lynn! Love how the sentiment is so perfect for the image and those 3 little gems are the perfect embellie. I always like the look when you take something rustic and primitive like the twine and put it with something sparkly and glittery!

Faye Wynn-Jones said...

Oh, I sooo like this card. The layout, colours and papers are not only fab but perfect for Old Foxy x

Bonnie said...

The background paper is a perfect match for Foxy! Hope you survived the onslaught and even enjoyed it!

Shelly Schmidt said...

Goodness- this is awesome! You must be sneaking off from the company (or getting ready for the company) to get some stamping done! Love that fox and the cute sentiment!

Joan Ervin said...

Sounds like you have had a lot of fun, Lynn...how wonderful to have your family come for the holidays!!! Your card is adorable especially with that sweet little fox. I'm glad you treated yourself to a little stamp therapy during all the craziness!!!
