Go Nuts!

What a fun afternoon of coloring and sewing! Have you been having a good day? This adorable little squirrel is from Clear Dollar Stamps. The set him and the sentiment below to are called Squirrel Chatter. I just love the sentiment. How fun! This card is going to my Grandma. Her birthday is in November and she feeds the squirrels in her yard. Let me tell you from experience don't you dare touch the "special" cookies she buys for her squirrels, she will let you know you have done wrong! =) I guess you feel you can just about say anthing when you are in your 90's!
These are the fun challenges I am submitting this card into:
Birthday Sundaes - Birthday with buttons
Come and Get It - Easel card
CR84FN - Orange, Yellow, and brown
Crafty Pad - Stitching - I had sewed the buttons on the card
Paper Sundaes - Anything goes
