Little Acorns

Every year I mean to do an Autumn themed card and this yr I was determined to get one made and here it is. The stamp was actually coloured up over 4yrs ago and then put away. Not actually forgotten about but I wasn't happy with the result. I had been going to a craft class where we were using promarkers but the teacher then changed us to colouring pencils and I just can't get on with them. I was so upset when I coloured him in as everyone else in the class had done an excellent job in getting the colours blended.  4 yrs on (and on his own ) he doesn't look as bad so time to make him up into a card.
 The stamp is by Sheena Douglass Perfect Partners 'Little Acorn Stamp Set' . It comes with leaves and acorns which we did colour up but I'm not happy with them either so not used.  I have followed  the sketch from Cheerful Sketches as the design for the card.  The papers are either magazine  freebies  or digital downloads. The jute edging was from my stash along with the hugs and kisses gold sentiment. I die cut Mr Squirrel using my Sizzix scallop circles 657552.

Wow, you did a fantastic job of coloring him. This card is great with the use of those colorful papers and the touch of jute is just right.

What kind of music does a mummy like?

Oh my, Shirley, I have had to hide your post from Hammy this time because he would insist I turn you in to PETA. He doesn't understand like I do how you can put a critter away for years until "someday" when it will be used. I applaud you for letting your fluffy gorgeous squirrel out of the box and on to this beautiful autumn card!! Hugs & Kisses back, Darnell
