Lets go NUTTY!!

Time is just flying this year.  It seems it's turned from hot days to cool days simply overnight.  I'm not sure what happened to the September weather.  It feels more like October.  So I feel like decorating for fall.  The leaves are starting to turn burgandy in color.  If they feel like a change, then so do I!  Besides, fall is one of my favorite times of year--with all the apples, honey and bees, leaves changing and the little campfires outside.  Not to mention the last outdoor get together of the year--where everyone needs a coat, roasts hot dogs on a stick and then tops off our fabulous get together with Smores!  My favorite part of the last get together is the lawn chairs around the campfire.  What could be better to bring a family in such close proximity?  Well, enough of my daydreaming and thoughts...onto the newest card show!

I've decided to kill two birds with one stone so I made one card for two challenges.  Generally I don't plan that far ahead.

I'm entering my furry friend in the Card Positioning challenge and The Pink Elephant challenge

Inspiration:  The card must have chevrons or hexagons for The Pink Elephant challenge.  For CPS I have to follow the below sketch.

I used two sheets from a BOK Family package.  They had some very pretty papers in this set.  I cut out a cute little squirrel from my Cricut and also 2 oak leaves.  I used just a touch of Hemp cording for a natural bow.  I used a black cardstock for the card base.  I couldn't find any stamp that fit the card.  I thought about so many options--the funniest to my hubby "I'm squirrely for your nuts" but he said I couldn't put it on the card.  So, using Word I printed out the saying "I'm nuts for you".  More appropriate to those without a sense of humor!  LOL  I had a lot of fun making this card.  It was quite nutty...or squirely-however you want to think of it!

I'm just in love with the little squirrel!  I mean how adorable is she?!?  Thanks for looking at my blog today.  Have a great weekend!  I however will be canning apple butter for my hubby! 
Take care, be inspired and keep on crafting!
