Autumn Leaves and Acorns

One of the things I love about autumn is watching the squirrels busy themselves with gathering acorns and hiding them away for the winter. They work hard, fast and diligently to stockpile their winter food supply. It reminds me of how hard I worked this summer harvesting, canning and preserving our garden produce.

Today's card is made with a beautiful autumn themed stamp set from Serendipity Stamps. This set is titled Acrons and in addition to the leaf and acorn image it has two lovely sentiment stamps.

Above is a close up photo of the leaves and acorns.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Serendipity Stamps Acorns #1141QCL
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, edges sponged with Brilliance Old Olive
Image colored with Copic Markers
Designer Papers: BoBunny and Bazille
Accessories: Nestibilities dies, brass brads, Satin ribbon, Stickles and Dimensional glaze on the acorns for shine and dimension.

It looks like it will be a rainy, windy and very cold day today where I live. I imagine the squirrels will be on the look out for more supplies to put into their storage for the winter that appears to be coming very soon.

Cheers!
