Make My Monday - Something beginning with F (and Empty Box Project #25)

Make My Monday is back after our summer break! We have four great new DT members, and I hope you will visit their blogs.

Our challenge is 'something beginning with F' and you can see I used fox, forest and fall.....yes, I know I'm British , so it should be autumn but it just fitted in so nicely!

The fox is from Stampin Up In the Forest set and is from my Empty Box Project box.

Just to recap:
On New Year's day I revealed my stamping shame - a big box of unused stamps - and started my Empty Box project. My aim is to work through the box , one stamp/ stamp set at a time and see if I can use them. If I can't use them, I will dispose of them. The aim is to finish with an empty box.

I bet you're surprised I haven't previously used this lovely ( and not inexpensive !) set. I think it's because the stamps are quite small so the obvious thing is to use several together. But I don't feel the proportions go together very well - the mouse is almost as tall as the fox . In the end I have used the biggest stamp - the fox  but I do have other fox stamps so that is probably why I haven't rushed to use it. 

(A little note: I've nipped back to say that, after I'd scheduled this post, I actually used two more of the stamps in this set . Due to the magic of scheduling , I posted them yesterday, even though I made this card first!)

It totally. how you created a scene here with the fox and trees. The different levels are perfect with the paper, image and trees. Very inspiring. Thanks for playing with us at 4 Crafty Chicks Fall Challenge.

I've got some stamp sets from Lawn Fawn I haven't used yet, for more or less the same reasons you mention. Some are used, but not all, they're super cute though and I plan to get them used. Soon.
Cute autumn forest scene.
