A Turkey and a Fat Cat = BFF

I finally got to play with my Chubby Chums set from Paper Smooches! The fat little animals are adorable, and I wanted to use them for this weeks SPARKS challenge at the Paper Smooches blog.

This was the inspiration photo:

I was inspired by the wood and orange colors, which remind me of Thanksgiving colors. I also liked the 'man' vibe, so I created two BFFs playing that are supposed to be little boys on a seesaw. I used Paper Smooches 'chubby chums' stamps and colored them with water color pencils. I drew, painted, and cut my own seesaw and lame clouds.

I will also be entering this card in this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, which uses this photo inspiration:

Pretty similar inspirations, huh? Orange and browns, and woodgrain natural textures. I'm also entering in Simon Says Stamp challenge which is ANYTHING GOES!

i like his pilgrim hat :)
