A snippet make and Buster the Squirrel!

Hi There! I realise that it has been over a week since my last post, but I am working on a few things that I will share with you in due course. I thought I would pop on and share a snippet Christmas card and some photos.
 My card has a snippet of vellum and a snippet of green card that have been in my stash forever! The bauble stamp is a very old one from Stampourium (no longer available). I coloured it using be creative markers, then applied some flake and glitter using the be creative glue wand. Here is a close up.
 I'm taking it to Miss Di's snippet playground. Do pop over and join in the fun if you can. I am also entering this into the current challenge at Penny Black and More, which is Anything Christmas.
Now to introduce you to Buster. This may be Cyril, but I renamed him, due to the fact he is pigging out on my bird peanuts and is now enormous!

 As you can see he fills the bird house!
Thanks for looking!

Great snippets card. I know squirrels are rodents but he is rather cute for all that and cheeky too.

Well hello Buster. Very pleased to meet you. I think we have one of your cousins in our garden too. Hugs Mrs A.

Great card but, sorry, Buster steals the show! He's cheeky and utterly gorgeous:-)

I love your card Sally, gorgeous baubles.
Cute photos of Buster, he certainly looks a bit on chubby side. We have them in our garden too. My husband tries to chase them away because they tend to dig holes in the lawn, but i like watching them scamper about and the lawn isn't very good anyway.

Hi Sally! For some reason there was no image added to Mr Linky and so your lovely card didn't show up in the thumbnails. I just had a little tinker and the only way I could to get it working was to delete you original try and add a new link, which explains why you're at number 81 and not in the 70's :)

LOVE this card, really tactile with that gorgeous gold and the colour of green with the vellum works so well!

What a whopper Buster is - lucky you to have squirrels so close! And lucky him to have his own peanut feeder :)

A gorgeous Christmas creation Sally and such a nice choice of colours.

Many thanks for joining us at Penny Black and More challenge this month.

We have Busters brother living here with his family, his name is Sam the Squibble - through the eyes of a four year old.

A gorgeous card Sally. I like the tree vellum and the lovely baubles.They stand out beautifully on your card.
Buster looks so cute and I guess worth every peny you have spent on nuts, even if he does hog the lot. Lol.
Thank you for joining us at Penny Black and More this month and good luck in the prize draw.
