I'm glad to be heading off to the post office this morning with a few more projects completed and ready to take flight, or hit the pavement!
This week I plan to be searching the web for some instruction on how to create natural lighting when trying to photograph images. You'll see why below as I have included some macros of the cloth skinny page with the Paper Whimsy figure - I adjusted the colors and contrast of the image that shows the full skinny page, but haven't done any adjusting on the macros. Can you tell the difference?
These two images make up the front and back, now sewn together.

PS - Here's the distinction between a groundhog and a marmot -
The groundhog (Marmota monax), also known as a woodchuck, or in some areas as a land-beaver, is a rodent of the family Sciuridae, belonging to the group of large ground squirrels known as marmots. Other marmots, such as the yellow-bellied and hoary marmots, live in rocky and mountainous areas, but the woodchuck is a lowland creature. It is widely distributed in North America and common in the northeastern and central United States. Groundhogs are found as far north as Alaska, with their habitat extending southeast to Alabama.
So - the groundhog is a WOODCHUCK, where as the yellow-bellied marmot is known as a ROCKCHUCK - but both are from the MARMOT family....
