Autumn Wishes

     I'm pushing hard for autumn because it will mean an end to the hot days of summer.  You'll see autumn cards from me more than once this week.  I'm sure there are people who love summer temperatures in the 100+F, but I'm not one of them.  Miserably hot summers may be the one thing that makes me regret moving from my northern California home to be closer to family.  I love being with my family - I just wish they had lived some place cooler.  lol

     Today, I've used an image from Ching-Chou Kuik, where the challenge theme celebrates "Four Legged Friends."

I'm ready for fall or winter or whatever too Connie. MUCH too hot this summer - and I moved further north! Didn't do a bit of good.
I love your card. Pretty coloring and that little squirrel is precious.

Lovely card, Connie! I love the color combo you have chosen.
We have been warm and very wet here in FL. But I way prefer the warmth over the cold.
Hugs Monica

Fabulous card, Connie! Your coloring is perfect. I live in Arizona, so I know about hot weather in the summer. It was 113 F. today. I can't think of a better way to stay cool than to stay inside and create! Thank you for playing along at Double Trouble Challenge #34.

Super colours for a cooler Autumn card. I love the summers but not to sit out in it. I hate the cold winters that we have here in the UK. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me this week. Hugs Mrs A.

NanaConie, another beautiful card. I love the autumnal colours you have used. I love to see squirrels and how they sprint up trees. Your card fits perfectly the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog Monthly Challenge this month. Even more FANTASTIC is that you have used one of Ching-Chou Kuik's digital stamps. Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw and for your support of this challenge blog.
