These critters are just perfect. In real life, they may be a bit intimidating but when you can stamp them or use them on patterned paper, they can add just a little bit of the outdoors to your paper projects. We have seen so many of these woodland creatures lately, I just had to show you some of my favorite ones. I am not sure if Katy Perry started it but when she asks in her song, “What does the fox say…?” these guys just keep getting cuter and cuter. But I still haven’t heard what they say.
This sweet faced fox from Amy is such a cutie and is perfect to work with your alcohol ink pens.

This next guy is all bundled up and ready for his cool weather adventures. I just love his little smirk. Also check out the awesome Doodlebug fox paper in the background; double word score!

Suzanne did such an awesome job of bringing her fox friends to life in this next card. How adorable are they?

We have to give the deer and the cardinal some woodland love too. How sweet is the kraft paper on kraft paper in this card.

Debby always does such a good job on her cards and I think she outdid herself with adorable gift bag. Hedgehogs are so hot.

Squirrels are usually so busy but this card uses awesome bold fall colors in the die cut leaf background so the squirrel can be the neutral center piece. He is such a cutie.

I actually laughed out loud when I saw this little food holder from Mel. She filled it with nuts and check out the cheeks on the squirrel. Tell me that you think this one is as awesome as I do. Just love it.

The squirrels in my neighborhood are more like the sentiment in this card, a small gang of yard invaders, but they look so clever in this one. I think the guy on the right is actually a skunk. None of those in my yard but so cute on a card.

Nichol gave the skunk a little love in this next card. With the perfect sentiment, this card is so stinkin’ cute!

The beaver is just begging for a little pun too. To tell you the ‘tooth’ I think this pun steals the show.

Raccoons have never looked cuter. In this adorable card by Michele, it steals her heart. Cute thief.

Nichol used a combination of cuties in her card using a photo negative base to highlight the fox, and his friends the squirrel and the hedgehog.
