squirrels in love


Here's a quick pic of what I've been working on - fun props for the A Muse store window! These cute "squirrels in love" are made from foamcore, painted with acrylic paint and the lines drawn with Copic markers. Then, I added a bit of A Muse polka dot paper for a little pattern. The shop has 3 windows in it's new location, so the boy squirrel is hanging in one window, the big pink scalloped heart is in the center and the girl squirrel is hanging in the window right next to the door. Hopefully, Linda will be able to take a photo of how it really looks, not just this one of them on my worktable. A nightime shot would be best with the spotlights shining on them.
Yup, we're getting ready for Valentine's Day...the new stamps are out and the window is done! Wooo-hooo! My favorite stamp of the new release that I designed is Puppy love. I've been wanting to do a weiner dog forever and I finally got the chance to design 2 of them!

I love your displays, just wish I could see them in person. I like the weiner dog couple, too! But all of the yummy treats top my list!

Oh my goodness ... these are two cute.

I have evil squireels at my house and they're sorta' a running joke with our frinds. Even got a cute little stuffed one from one of them for Christmas! *laugh* Not as cute as these though! Can't wait to see the shop window!
