Just a note ~ Wild Child Fox

Hey everybody!!

**I was blessed to see this project on the Wow'd Me Wednesday post at TGF!

I want to give a quick shout out and send a huge prayer to my ohana and friends on the BIG ISLAND & the other Hawaiian Islands as they await the hurricane/tropical storms.  Stay safe and stay strong!!

Today I have another calendar/card combo for another co-worker who's last day was Wednesday.  It's so sad to say good-bye but when the job isn't working for you then it's time to say adios!  When I first met Matt I thought to myself a real life anime character works here!  hehehe! BTW, in my book I think that's awesome!  So when I thought about what I would make I thought it would be fun to go with a fun image that wasn't necessarily an anime character but you would probably see at an anime convention.  While I was wracking my brain over this I just happened to be looking for a punch when I came across my untouched Wild Child stamp set from The Greeting Farm and a light bulb went off in my head!

I have always loved the Wild Sprouts and was sooo happy when this set hit the store!  I guess you could say I saved this one for a good reason.  Getting to this card, I picked fox colors and had fun coloring him up!  I pulled the colors for the rest of the card from the colored image.  The papers are from last years Recollections Haunted Manor Halloween stack, but I thought some of the papers could work for a non-Halloween project.  The card is a bit bigger than the normal A2 card because the image itself plus the calendar totally dominated the base.  Used the TH postage stamp die again.  Here's a couple close-ups...

Made this banner free-hand, and used the TH postage stamp die for the top part.  After distressing it a bit and gluing it down I punched two holes and looped in the mandarin & white twine.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches...  Here's the inside, thought a simple thanks was in order for all the help Matt gave...

Yep, thanks to this card by Sister Stamps owner Kiki Sakamoto which enabled me to buy that Winnie & Walter sentiment stamp set.  It's actually pretty awesome!  I anticipate many uses with it.  Thanks Kiki!!

This was so much fun to make, can't wait to ink up the girly Wild Child next, hopefully not as a going away gift but for a happy occasion.   Until then, have a great day and to my Hawai'i peeps stay safe, will be praying for a safe passage for you folks!  Mahalo for stopping by!
