Hi all, happy Sunday. For the last few days we have been having cool weather with highs in the mid sevenths. It feels like fall here and is perfect weather for sitting on the porch watching the squirrels playing in the yard. I guess this one is for my furry little entertainers.

For the strip across the bottom I stamped the Double Chevron Card Edger  using the solid part and layered it on black card then added the gold brads.
