Wink Wink Ink "Wooly Bear"

Hello, today I have a card made with the new Wink Wink Ink image 'Wooly Bear'. Now some of you might be surprised to see that this little guy isn't a bear, but a caterpillar! Every fall we get these adorable little guys crawling in our yards in Wisconsin. It's a sign that winter is about to come. There are many old folktales that say you can tell how cold or long the winter will be based on the size of the stripe of the caterpillar. If the stripe is thick, it means the winter will be mild, if the stripe is narrow, it means the winter will be severe. I don't know about you, but I'm hoping to find lots of thick striped Wooly Bear Caterpillars in my yard this fall!

Because these cute little guys arrive in fall, I decided to use fall papers and colors on my card. They are from the DCWV Amber Autumn Fall Stack Collection. My layout is from Our Creative Corner. This image comes with three different sentiments, all of which I love so it was hard to choose which one to use, but I settled on this one because it has always been one of my most treasured quotes. Here is a close up of the main image. I colored mine with Copic Markers, but it is also available pre-colored.

And here is the sentiment which I printed onto designer paper. The butterflies are a Cuttlebug Die Cut.

Have a great day! I hope you have lots of wide-striped Wooly Bear Caterpillars where you live!
