Challenge #48: Squirrels

Good Morning,

Welcome back for another Tuesday wit the Die Cuttin' Divas. We are glad you are joining us.

We have a new challenge, great Design Team projects to share, and LOTS of new sponsors coming this year...3 Girl Jam, Cutters Creek, Amber Ink, Stamping Scrapping, Circle B Enterprise, Cute as a Button, My Craft Spot, and Art for the Heart continues. 

A BIG THANK YOU for the support. We truly appreciate the generosity!

The Challenge...
Squirrel Appreciation Day ... Let's use a squirrel on our project this week.
When : Always January 21st

Squirrel Appreciation Day is an opportunity to enjoy and appreciate your tree climbing, nut gathering neighborhood squirrels. It's held in mid-winter when food sources are scarce for squirrels and other wildlife. Sure, squirrels spent all fall gathering and "squirreling " away food. But, their supplies may not be enough. And, the variety of food is limited. So, give them an extra special treat today to supplement their winter diets.

Here are the Design Team's projects...

Create a Critter

Create a Critter and Simply Charmed
Cindy Loo

Campin' Critters and Doodlecharms
Create a Critter and Give a Hoot

Create a Critter

Winter Woodland

Challenge #47: Blue, Silver and White winner...
Here is our badge for you to display.
Please send me your mailing address, so I can forward it to Pat of Pat's Scraps.
She will get those fabulous embossing folders right out to you.

Remember...You will have one week to plan, create, and submit your project. There will be a showcase later this week (as long as Blogger is being cooperative) and then the winner will be announced next Tuesday. Please remember to include which die-cut you used and a link back to our site.

We are looking foward to all those squirley projects.

I just remembered a cute squirrel story I'd like to share. My sister watched a squirrel try to climb to a feeder but it was protected by one of those gadgets that spin the squirrel around and off the tree when it tries to jump on. She watched the squirrel go back and do it again, Then, it went to another squirrel and brought it back to give it a try. She said it looked like they found their own amusement ride.
