Falling for you

 Morning all.  Are you ready for a new Make My Monday challenge.  We are looking for 'Autumn/fall' cards.  See, I did warn you there would be plenty of these themes coming up.  I did go to my one autumnal themed paper set but, instead of leaves, I chose to go with acorns.  

And where you get acorns you get squirrels.  This little cutie was from a set of critters at Tiddlyink (sadly now shut). I added a couple of gold leaves on my twine.  One is very shy and hiding behind the other.  A friend of mine has a squirrel in her garden.  She sits on the bench under the trees and shouts at it for digging holes in the ground to bury his nuts in.  Apparently, he takes not a blind bit of notice.
If only she could train it to dig holes where she wants to plant things.  It would save her so much hassel.

Ok, let's see your autumnal projects please.

Thanks for reading.

  6. Aww, what an adorable fall time greeting. Squirrels are such darling critters. Strangely, despite living on a street flanked by woodland on both sides and having a number of evergreens in our own backyard, squirrel sightings are super rare around these parts. I think we've seen maybe three squirrels in 3.5 years and counting of living at this address. All the more reason I'm happy we can enjoy and connect with squirrels anytime we please in our paper crafting.
