KKS Monday - Autumn Squirrel

Watching the squirrels scurry around burying pecans in my front yard on Wednesday inspired me to reach for my 3 Step Autumn Squirrel set to create this week's 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More designs for Kitchen Sink Stamps. I am glad to see that they will visit me again this winter to dig up their sweet Texas pecans for a quick lunch!

  1. Absolutely splendid cards, Lynn! I just love the trees in the 2nd one - scrumptious detail! We love watching the squirrels at play here, hopping around and chasing and going up and down the trees - beautiful representation of God's adorable little creature! And very FALL! ♥ Hope you are okay out there in Texas!

  2. Morning Lynn, wow two perfect Autumn card designs and colors.

    Hugs diane

  3. Both cards are beautiful and the feel of fall is definitely present! Love the gorgeous birch trees, especially pretty!

  4. Both are beautiful examples of this wonderful fall weather we're having - and the squirrels running every where! Love the trees added on the second one but they're just both so pretty.

  5. I love the squirrel and almost pulled him out to do a card on Monday myself. Love these pretty fall colors on both cards. That dp is just perfect for that first card, and your fablous stamping of the scene on the second one is with your usual exquisite eye for detail.

  6. Loving both these cards. Your color choices are spot on and I think that squirrel stamp is great, so realistic.

  7. I am really loving the squirrels here!! SO CUTE!! Fun Fall colors and designs on both of them Lynn!! :) Thanks for sharing!

  8. Wow,mthose birch trees look so real! Such beautiful cards and that squirrel is too cute!

  9. My husband is such a squirrel fanatic- I just love this fun image : ) Your cards are just amazing- love both of them- the layered colors make such realistic images.

  10. Love both cards. Your choice in patterned papers for the first one is spot on as it perfectly complements the squirrel. Second card is yet another stunning realistic scene!
