It's Happy Hour Somewhere

Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches Blog today. I giggled the whole time I was making this card. As I've said many times before, there are two stamps that are necessities when it comes to my Paper Smooches stamp collection - the squirrel from Hang Ups and the professor from Smarty Pants. If you have these two, you can make any scene! LOL In our backyard, we are constantly entertained by the squirrel antics. I think I have a fondness for squirrels because they are the worker bee type, always scurrying about getting things done.

The sentiment and island drinks being hogged by the squirrel are from the new release Get Outta Town. I stamped the squirrel from Hang Ups three times so I could create new tail and arm positions for this scene. The juke box is from Perpetual Bliss and the shadow is from Vogue Abode. Thanks for stopping by today!

So, I giggled when I read the sentiment, because I swear to peanuts I said that exact thing yesterday at 4:30 before pouring an adult beverage. Some days are like that!
This squirrel is too fabulous - in your hands - and I love his fun fruity drinks :)
