I am here with two posts today--kinda long so grab something to nibble on and sip on and take your time :D
Time for another SCACD Friends with Heart Challenge~~Yippee!!!
This week's challenge: April Showers bring May Flowers~~ use the color blue and flowers!!
Meet the cutest, sweetest and most adorable little squirrel by EB-- Exclusive for SCACD from the Animapeeps Collection~~Binkies Rule.  Made a Funtastic Swivel Birthday Card :0)
Colored with Copics, used diamond glaze on underpants and eyes, stickles blinged her outfit and rattle.
She sits upon foam tape for dimension :)  The rhinestones you see on the card, flowers and butterflies are  I-rock Gems.  The embossing on the matted very lite blue textured CS is done with a CB embossing plate given to me by my Mom~thanks Mom!!!  Sponged edges and center with TH faded jean distress ink.  
Used brad on flower to connect the SB nesties before gluing to larger oval CS.  Used lots and lots of beautiful prima flowers~~check out Susana's Gorgeous Flower selection HERE!!

Now don't forget to join in the fun!!!  Prize for April is $50.00 certificate from Susana's Store!!!

Next is Sunday's With Crissy 
The April challenge at SWC is either~~Spring is in the Air or Baby!!
Check out Crissy's New Fun Baby Digi's HERE!! They are absolutely a MUST have!!!  So dern cute--I had a hard time choosing which to create with first~~but seeing I became a Great Auntie for the first time to a darling little girl named Hadley Fern~~I chose to make her a cute baby basket!!
Meet Crissy's New Baby Girl Image~~~SWEEEEETTTT!!!!
Colored with Copics--added stardust stickles to flower on her headband--not much hair yet :) and ruffle on socks.  Diamond glaze to heart on panties and the silk binding on her blankie :)  Ultra fine FS sure gave her blankie a fuzzy soft look!!  Cut out with SB labels ten and matted with SB Scallop oval.
Bow made with bow easy~~added button, wild orchid rose buds and leaves, baby charm and few other flowers from my stash.  Papers are PTI cardstock (Dark pink) and Paper Temptress (shiny pink) which were all cut out with SU die and embossed with SU folder.
Another side of basket.  Love this saying--don't you???  Cloud 9 clear epoxy quote sticker matted with pink CS that matches inside of basket.  Fancied with more wild orchid flowers.  These leaves are MS rose leaf punch. Sparkled with stardust stickles again.
View from above~~Handle made with MS infinite loop punch.  Before adhering I spritzed with Tsukineko sparkle shimmer spritz and IRL it most definitely GLISTENS!!
I found this clever idea from Donna of Butternut Sage~ She has Brilliant Creations!!!~Thanks Donna!!
