Speedy The Cat's Friends Challenge #17

This week, over a the Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge blog, DT member Geri, has challenged us to make a harvest card. Well I don't have any Mark's Finest stamps to fill the bill, so I used something new that has not seen ink yet. I purchased half of the new August, Unity store kit, called "Harvest of Memories. I fell in like with the patterned leaves.
Besides the leaves, the frame and sentiment were from the same kit. The squirrel, is from a set called Whimsical Autumn, from Gina K. Designs.

The papers are ones that were in my scrap bin, but I know they are K&Co from last season. I used some fall colored fiber to tie a floppy bow down the side. My orange leaves have a touch of Champagne Stickles. Dewdrops were used as accents. All of the images were stamped in walnut Distress Ink, and colored with Copics #'s 0, E00, Y38, YR24.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and I shall be back soon!

Boy am I a total ditz! I left a comment for this card on my own blog yesterday! DUH!! LOL Anyway, here's what I had to say about this card:

This is really cute! That squirrel image looks perfect for an autumn card and those dewdrops could be his collection of nuts he's stashing for the winter! I love the checkered DP and script on the leaves! Great card with wonderful deets!!

Now for some strong coffee before I leave comments again! Sorry 'bout that one :D

Wonderful, M.A.! Squirrels always make me smile -- my husband thinks that they are a nuisance though!
