Gathering in

On Monday, as I walked down to Dotty's Teahouse where I sell my cards, I noticed that the squirrels were very busy burying the acorns and any other seeds they could find.

There is certainly an abundant harvest for them to gather in.
 Some of the oak trees in the park must be very old...such wonderful specimens.
I love the light in the mornings at this time of the year

and it was so pleasantly warm too.

My card today is one I took down to sell in Dotty's. If you are ever around the Carshalton area you will find a warm welcome there.

The stamped sentiment is Visible Image and is a very popular one at Dotty's. I have made a seasonal collection featuring my hand die cut, stamped and altered leaves. You can also see my latest cards in Dotty's if you search for #cardsbyjanefordottys. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Simon says stamp Monday stamp on it
Simon says stamp Wednesday stamp on it
Lil patch of crafty friends 2/3 anything goes
The ribbon girl 2/3 anything goes
Crafteezee anything goes
Happy little stampers CAS wild

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for your kind comments you take the time to leave me. 
Let's hope all the wildlife have a mellow winter ahead and that they, and us gather in wisely.

Back soon,

Bye for now,

  1. You took some great pictures of this squirrel with the nut in his cute! I love your card because the leaves look real and seem to jump off the card. Love it!

  2. Beautiful card and post Jane...I love the Autumn colours and the sequins on your card add to the effect. That sentiment is wonderful too...I think it applies to most women! Enjoy your weekend.

  3. You've just got to love squirrels and you caught some great photos of them. Pretty card and I like your airplanes too.

  4. Love your squirrel photos! They are pests on the bird feeders, but fun to watch. This year we have an over abundance of squirrels due to a large acorn crop!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  5. Awe love your card!!
    When we were walking through our park the other day a squirrel hit the ground with a thump just feet from us, we weren't sure if he was jumping from tree to tree and missed or whether he actually meant to do it ... don't know who was more surprised, him or us!!
    Hope you are having fun,
