Cheer up!

rooco-flowers1Wouldn’t this adorable raccoon lift your spirits? I wanted to make an easy-to-mail card with no “bumps” and this is what I came up with. Others have had Rooco the raccoon carrying various things above his head, like a pumpkin, but I wanted something non-seasonal. I had Tracy’s new set, Happy Harvest, on my table and saw that one of the pieces from that set would fit perfectly!

I colored the image with my Copic markers, and then did a little freehand doodling around the edge, ‘cause it just needed something! Oh, and I also used some Sunshiny Yellow Fun Flock on the centers of the daisies to give the card a little bit of dimension.

Incidentally, I just have to say that Stampendous has a terrific product here with these ClingRubber stamps. You get all the advantages of an unmounted, foam-backed rubber stamp (superb impression and easy storage) along with the ability to see exactly where you’re stamping, since the image of the stamp is printed right on back, which clings to your acrylic block. And (shameless plug here) Kate has a bunch of them, including this Rooco Reach, at i {heart} papers. Just do a search for “rooco” on the site.

Hope your spirits are high!
