Stampin' Up! Fable Friends for the Paper Players

Stampin' Up Fable Friends for the Paper Players

I love a good sketch challenge so I picked one from The Paper Players this week.

It's was extremely windy today at my home on the eastern shore of Maryland. It's days like these that Galestown lives up to its name because some of the wind definitely seemed like it was gale-force. Even though it 46 degrees outside the wind chill made it bitter cold. I am so ready for spring. Only 22 days!! So I brought a little spring inside with this card.

I love the Fable Friends stamp set. This sweet little squirrel is just one of the cute critters. There is also a mama goose and her goslings and a bunny. I choose Happy Spring for the sentiment but I could have just as easily chosen Easter Blessings or Darling Baby.

I used a couple of my favorite colors of cardstock. and embossed them with the basketweave embossing folder. I cut and glue the piece of cardstock to a piece of printer paper and embossed them all at the same time.

I am ready for spring, How about you? Chase those winter blues away by doing something creative every day. For a little bit of inspiration, visit The Paper Players and see what over 40 other paper crafters created with this sketch. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope that my cards will inspire you to do something creative today.

 If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you. Please take the time to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you!

Happy Stamping,


  1. I am happy to see this little squirrel on someone's card, I've been missing him! I just pulled this set out today to work up some Easter cards! Beautiful colors and a fabulous background! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Players this week and using my sketch!

  2. Oh my gosh, that squirrel is so cute holding his big flower! Love the cohesive basket weave embossing for all the background color block strips, you used a great way to achieve it. I am definitely ready for Spring, our weather is teasing us with 60 degrees today and in the 40's for the next several days. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week!
