We're "NUTS" over you!!

Hi Everyone!! My son, Jacob, thinks that there is no one in the world like my mom, his “mamaw!” In his eyes, Mamaw hung the moon. Since my dad’s death four months ago, I’ve tried to send my mom little “pick me ups” each week to brighten her days. Here is a card that Jacob and I came up with this past weekend. My mom has lots of squirrels in her neighborhood that cause havoc in her landscaping so she's not exactly fond of squirrels. We thought she would find this card funny!!

This past weekend, I challenged myself to try and make a card using some of my scraps. I don’t know about you but I have “TONS” of scraps from all the projects I've created over the years. I used the Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge to cut out the squirrel border at 5” and folded it in half. I then cut out the squirrel shadow at 5” and used adhesive to glue it to the back of the card to strengthen the card so it would stand up. The tag was cut with Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.

Hope you enjoy and thank you for stopping by. Come back tomorrow! God Bless, Donna!


  1. I love this card and what a special thing that you and your son are doing for your mom.
    I love it
    Thanks so much for sharing
    (I too have tons of scraps)

  2. What a cute card! Love that you take care of your mom like that! It's been almost 10 years since my dad died and I still like to do things like that for my mom! Thanks for sharing this!
