Feeling a bit Down...

Down Under that is! It's all about Australia this week at Squirrel and Fox Challenges! We are helping our Aussie friends celebrate Australia Day--with our theme Australia and/or Party!

We have the amazing sponsor of
You have GOT to check out Zoe's new stamps for Australia Day!

In fact, let me show you one of them...
This is the adorable new digi stamp Koala &Joey...I know! Soooo cute! I just loved coloring them up! I used my W's with a circular motion for get a better *furry* look. And then for some extra fun, I did the paper tole technique for the baby and Stickles for the leaves. I had to laugh at that...know what color they were? "Eucalyptus"! LOL! I used my Leafy Branch embossing folder for the Certainly Celery layer. Kraft, Basic Grey and Certainly Celery is my new favorite color combo! LOL!
He is just so cute on his mommas head! Isn't that sentiment just right? It's from my Everyday Button Bits set by Papertrey Ink. I'm sending this card to my mom...she's been seriously stressed right now having to take care of my dad's parents and even sleeping up at their house away from my dad right now. So I made this for a little pick me up...I KNOW she'll love it!

It was actually ironic that this was the theme this week...guess what country we were studying in our homeschool? Yep, Australia with the letter K for Kangaroo and...KOALA! Perfect, eh?

Well we hope you will play along in our Australian Party Theme! Make sure you visit the other S&F design team members for more peaks at some of the fabulous Make It Crafty Australian Images!
