A raccoon… just for you!

Good morning blogland! The card I’m showing today has something to do with one of my childhood craze… I used to watch Candy Candy (do you remember this cartoon ?) and I wanted sooooo badly to have a pet raccoon… Then I watched Disney’s Pocahontas and my craze came back stronger… And then my parents went to live in Boston, Massachusetts while I stayed in France, and I hoped for long that they would bring back with them the little guy that sometimes came to visit their garden… But to my despair, they only brought me a stuffed one :-p Well I imagine that a real raccoon is more troubles than anything else, but hey, has reality anything to do with childhood dreams? 😉 Anyway, I knew that I had to have this little guy from Whiff of Joy as soon as I saw him. Better to have a rubber one, I guess! This card is pretty simple to make, and I enjoyed colouring Niki the celebrating raccoon with my Promarkers. The stamped image is mounted on foam pads, and I created a kind of pink frame to bring it out. I added a few pink rhinestones, faux-stitching with pink gel pen and stamped the sentiment… Quick and easy 🙂 Shimmer and Shine - A raccoon just for you Here is a close-up of the cutest raccoon ever : Shimmer and Shine - A raccoon just for you   This card enters the following challenge from CASology : Pet CASologyWeek 104 - Pet   and one from Addicted to Stamps, theme : Clean and Simple ATSChallenge   What about you, do you have a pet you would have loved to have when you were a child ?

    Delphine, that is a cute story…most people I know are trying to get rid of the raccoons around their homes! Your colored raccoon certainly is adorable and the pink frame and stitching is quite adorable! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!

      You’re probably right Judy, we always find cute what we don’t have in our countries 😉 I remember my parent’s neighbours being horrified because my mum bought nuts for the squirrels 😀 But we don’t have any in our gardens in France, so we loved to watch them ^^ thanks for your comment!

      Thank you Lee-Anne… and your comment made me realise that “raccoon” was written with two “c”! I corrected it 😉 Yes this little guy really is cute 🙂
