Chubby Chipmunk

What's more fun than a chubby little chipmunk!  Um......can't thing of anything better to put a smile on my face.  This little guy is from Deedee's Digis.  If you played along last month in our progressive challenge you've already received this cute set - which comes with two images and some wonderful sentiments!  If you didn't play along you can purchase it in the store for a special price (here) - then when enter your creation for this months challenge, you'll receive another digi set next month for free!

I used the pre-colored image along with some fall looking card stock in Kraft, Chocolate Chip,  and patterned paper.  The sentiment was printed on Kraft and then the button and twine added.

I'm not sure if Fall will ever get down here in Texas but I'm ready for it if it ever does - chipmunks and all!  I'm not even sure if we have chipmunks in this area since I've never seen one.  We are pretty well overrun with squirrels though.  So, I'll say that this looks like Rambo after the pecans fall.  He loves those things and always has one in his mouth.  He even carries them in and tries to bury them in the carpet!  Maybe he's part chipmunk!!!

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

The nearest we get to chipmunks is squirrels Lynn! I've seen them in pet shops, but there are none in the UK. Thankfully, we have amazing cards like this instead. You've captured Autumn/Fall perfectly! xxx

Cute! I love those fall colours and the pretty paper. Would also like to see Rambo with the nuts in his mouth and trying to bury them.

Wonderful job with this image. I love that orange paper in the background. I know one button and twine is a small embellishment, but it really packs a big punch. I hope you get some cooler weather soon. We are having a fall like day today and it should last for a few days. YAY! Enjoy your day today.

I hope you had a nice weekend x

Too cute Lynn! I love this chubby chipmunk! He looks like he is enjoying a nice warm drink on a cool fall day. Love how cute he is in his sweater too. lol Love your fall papers, heck if you come here, wear your long johns! lol Because you will be freezing coming from your temps to our temps, which are barely 70 today! lol So it is feeling like fall here! That cracks me up about Rambo, I guess the carpet can be kinda thick and maybe he thinks you can't see his pecans in it. lol Hugs, Brenda

I guess I need to get this darling chip turned into a card soon. He's been colored up and on my desk for nearly a week now. Hmmm... Love yours and your paper is a perfect choice. The sentiment printed onto kraft is wonderful. You've inspired me to get going on it. :-D

Isn't he just adorable. I love the colors, looks just like Autumn. Hugs, joann sassy raggedy

Monica said...

Chubby and sweet indeed he is and he did make me happy.

Sorry for not visting, Lynn, been sooooo busy trying to get organized and get the kids settled in school and also get used to the idea of a new school.

Home front is okay which is a big relief. Once the children are more settled it would help.

Lots of love,

Monica

Irish Cherokee said...

Love this card. Brought a smile for sure. We do have chipmunks. They are brazen little critters and if you manage to befriend one they will accept food from your hand if you stay still. - Jim

this is such a cute image Lynn-and right where I like to see chipmunks-on a card and not in our yard (lol)!!

MaryH said...

Love this little fella, and you've combined him with some really pretty papers in a fun design. He's perfect with the sunburnt oranges and that kraft. Loved the button and twine timrs. This fella lends himself to so many pretty cards. TFS & Hugs

This might just be the cutest image ever! I love the fall colors and the super cute chipmunk!!

When we lived in town, there was a chipmunk that lived in the storm pipes. He was pretty cute too! Ironically, I haven't seen any since we moved to the country! I can picture Rambo stuffing his cheeks with pecans!
