Another FRIENDS card . ..

I have a card to share with you today for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog and I'm happy to say it also fits the Classy Cards 'n Such challenge where the theme is Squirrel-y Friends (squirrel being optional). 

This has to be one of my favorite 'Friends' stamps
and it's perfect for this time of year!

The dies I've used today are:
 Die Versions 'Wee Petites' FALL #DWP-003
Memory Box 'Pinpoint Square Layers' #30060
Poppystamps 'Frisky Squirrels' #1134

The background panel was created from scraps of fall paper and the
leaves were die cut from a small portion of paper I had left that I created using Ken Oliver's Color Burst.

The 'Diamond' Stickles across the top stands for the True friends mentioned in the sentiment.  And, this time I added the 'optional' squirrels ... LOL!  Aren't they cute!
The squirrels in our back yard have been VERY busy lately ... something tells me the know more of what's coming then we do!!
