Shelly's Images October Challenge

Morning All!

WOW!  I still can't believe we are already into the month of October!!  That white stuff will be flying long before I'm ready!!  Eeeekkks!

With the start of a new month, that means it's time for the new monthly challenge over at Shelly's Images Blog.  This month we have a photo inspiration for you.

TTT Challenge Theme - Fall Inspiration Photo

Isn't this a beautiful, peaceful photo ... I'd like to just jump in and take a walk down this road!!
But, back to reality!  
Here's what I've created using not just one but two of Shelly's Images ... 
We have several squirrels in our back woods and they are very busy right now collecting nuts (and burying them in my yard) for the winter so I thought it would be fun to add these guys to my card.

I used WORD to create this little scene.  That gave me the availability of sitting one squirrel on the fence and reversing the direction on the other one to sit on the ground at the corner.  Here in Ohio, we have not only gray squirrels but red squirrels and even black squirrels.

A few additional challenges I'd like to enter into:
Creative Moments - Autumn/Anything Goes
The House that Stamps Built - Happy Fall Ya'll
Little Red Wagon - Use a Fence
Papercraft Star - photo inspiration

Addicted to Stamps & More
