Raccoons are such interesting critters. One of my favorite books is Where the Red Fern Grows and one of my favorite parts in that book is where the grandfather explains to the boy on how to catch a coon with a nail. Raccoons are curious and they like shiny things. Makes me smile every time I read it.
I'm playing along with Ellen Hutson's Mix It Up Challenge with Waffle Flower Crafts. I started with a red cardstock base and die cut a circle on the right side. I topped the circle with a pretty and intricate die from Waffle Flowers, called Flowers Circle Inverted Die. I then finished the front with some washi tape banners and a sentiment die cut from Essentials by Ellen Brushstroke Hello by Julie Ebersole.
The little raccoon from the Essentials by Ellen's Tree Farm by Brandi Kincaid peeks out from the die cut circle on the front of the card.
I took some time to craft today, after spending the morning outside in the flowerbeds getting them ready! I can hardly wait to see which pretty perennials weathered the harsh Wisconsin winter...
