My card features one of the sentiments from Qwick Qwips. This set is filled with fun, popular three-letter expressions!

I came up with this scene when I recently acquired Spring Groves. It was a case of squirrel meets squirrel. The big one always makes trouble for the little one, right? LOL And a scene was born. I thought the patterned papers from My Mind's Eye Dilly Dally worked perfectly with it. I cut out some of the tickets that would complement the scene. The small squirrel has paid the big squirrel '1 token', which he's holding, to give him the ride of his life. LOL See how perfectly the sentiment works with the scene? ;D The spoon is from Healthy Vibes and the fulcrum is the hat from Party Posse.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check back here on Saturday to see if you are the lucky winner of Qwick Qwips!
