Nuts About Squirrels

 I personally do not like squirrels very much.  They hang from
my peaches and apples, just to taunt me.  They dig up potted
plants.  They have no respect for my gardening efforts.

However, Nuts About Squirrels (page 49 in the July - December
catalog) is great fun.  My Dad always used to use the phrase
"bright-eyed & bushy-tailed", so I had to have this set.
The stamps are easy to use and work very well together.

I layered the focal image on to a piece of the Hostess 
Pattern Party DSP.  The sentiment was cut out with the
Stitched So Sweetly dies on page 166.

I guess I can learn to be more open minded about squirrels.

I am not a fan of squirrels either. They raised havoc in TN. Your card is very cute but it still won't make me like squirrels!

This card is adorable, Jackie! My dad loved to watch the squirrels in the woods from the living room window. Fortunately (especially for them), the squirrels stayed in the woods and didn't come near his fruit trees. These two little guys look so cute!

I guess I'm in the minority - I love squirrels! They're daily visitors to our back yard (and deck, and 'bird food') :) Their antics are such fun to watch. The squirrels on your card have the same fun & feisty looks on their faces! Such an adorable card, Jackie! The leaf background paper is the perfect addition

This is a fun loving card, two squirrels looking to get into trouble. I'm not a fan of them either as they get into the bird feeder and not only eat the seeds but make a heck of a mess at the bird feeders. Your card turned out so cute
