{heavy sigh}...

It's a lovely, chilly autumn day, and as I write this, I can see orange & crimson leaves dropping from the branches with every gust of wind... sigh... I love Fall.  The crunch of the leaves underfoot, the squirrels scampering up trees & across fence tops, and the subtle scent of wood burning.  mmmmm...


Speaking of squirrels... yep... you guessed it!  Another squirrely card.  I can't help it... he is so cute.  If it is any consolation, my next post will NOT feature this little dude :)

Another VERY simple, clean layout... I do believe my WOSFF (web-o-sphere friend forever) Laurie is rubbing off on me :)


Stamps:  So Squirrely
Paper:  Penelope (orange), Kraft & DCWV lime cardstocks, Mulberry Meadow (dark green - retired) cardstock
Other:  Prismacolor pencils, Scor-Bug, BG ribbon, EK Sucess Icicle border punch, foam tape



The squirrel kinda looks like he's standing in a field of something... harvest time!  He & the sentiment are popped up on foam tape.  And he wasn't too bad to cut out... except around his feet :)


And may I say that I love love LOVE the ribbon?!  Typically I'm not a plaid girl... a little bit country-fried for me, but this one worked great.


What do you think?

Well, I'm pretty squirrely sometimes, so this guy is just perfect for my taste! And just think, he can really only be used for one season, so you gotta get your money's worth! VERY cute card, Barb - Love that little fence! And that bow is a wowza bow! Great work!
