Life in the Forest

My favorite time of the month is when my monthly Stamp Camp order arrives because that means new toys!!! Yay!  This month I got some things that are different from what I usually order, just to change things up a bit. CASology is having a fun challenge that worked perfectly with two of my new sets.
When I was thinking of bold, I thought about a bold statement, so I decided to make a fun birthday card. The color I chose is also pretty bold. :)

"You HOW old?" I thought that was a pretty bold question to ask someone on their birthday. :) For my fox, I stamped him once on DSP and once on Whisper White cardstock. I then used my craft night to carefully cut out the parts that I wanted to be orange and adhered them to the Whisper White cardstock. I love how it turned out and I will definitely be doing this again!

On a side note, I wanted to share a picture with you of my "helper," Cali.   As you can see, she is there by my Big Shot and where I take my photos.  She also likes to sit right next to my Tabletop Trimmer. I'm always moving her so I don't cut her tail!
