Feeling a little "Nutty" tonight

Hi my creative friends!  I have been feeling very under the weather lately and I've been spending more time sleeping than crafting.  I am so tired of being sick, I thought I should just craft right through it tonight!  So I searched for a challenge and found the Vertical Sketch Challenge over at Moxie Fab World!!

Here's the sketch:
and here's my take on the sketch:
 I just had to break out my brand new Papertrey Ink Autumn Acorn stamps for this one!! As I was going through my felt to cut out the sweet little leaves, I realized that I need to buy more!  I am so glad I had a little Simply Chartreuse felt leftover or I would have been very disappointed!  You can be sure I have already loaded my cart full of felt, especially with the holidays on the horizon!!
I cut the leaves out of Simply Chartreuse felt and added a little stitching.  I die cut the acorns and then stamped the acorn twice, once on cardstock and once on patterned paper.  I just love the different patterns available in the stamp set.  They are just tooooo cute!!

Papertrey Ink Supplies Used:
Rustic Cream Cardstock
Fall Prints and Patterns Patterned Paper
Autumn Acorn Stamps and Dies
Simply Chartreuse Felt
Fine Linen Twill Ribbon and Buttons
Other Supplies:  Prima Lace; Memento Rich Cocoa Ink; Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink

Thanks for stopping by!!  I'm off to get more rest!!
Have a wonderful Wednesday,
Kristii
