Nuts About You

Leo sent me mainly woodlandy templates from her fabulous collections of Crafty Templates to play with this month. Last time I shared my Hippy Hedgehog, today my card is another "unusual" garden visitor

We live in an area frequented by black squirrels. I'd love to have red squirrels visit our garden but sadly I've never even seen a red squirrel irl. We do have grey onescome to our garden, but the blacks are much more interesting. Here's one of our visitors who's learned how to climb the metal pole of our bird-feeder
As soon as I saw the squirrel template I knew my squirrel card would have to be black

I used circles from another of the templates to make the lollipop flower wotsit, the greeting circle was made on the pc

I always regret using feathers because they always leave little bits of fluffy stuff on my desk which manages to hang around for ages, attaching itself to other projects for ages afterwards.

Crafty Templates are always fab, and they're always fun and inspiring. If you fancy having a go and seeing how they work, check out the website for more info.

That's all for the moment.
Don't forget to check out the Sketch File if you've not done already. I've got a new sketch ready to put on there. That's my next job so pop over in a minute and maybe it'll inspire you to get some cardmaking done!

Pah! You can't expect a Northumberland lass (not even an adopted one) to sympathise with anything other than a red, can you? lol! Love the lollipop and I hope you get rid of the fluffy bits off your desk soon!

Hee hee, what a cute card. We get red squirrels close to the farm. Sadly, a lot of them get run over, even though there are signs for drivers to watch out for them.

I would love to see red squirrels wild around this area again but I would also love to see your black ones....they are magnificent Kathy!

Your little card is cute and I am pleased to see he has a nut!!! X
