Living in the woods


This was a scene straight form my backyard a few days ago. Our dining room window faces towards the woods and we occasionally catch a deer or two in the yard. A few days ago, there was a group of at least six does and young bucks outside. One was under our pine trees, looking much like this fella. Nature is nice, but once it comes inside the house, I don't like it as much, i.e. crickets, spiders, bats, mosquitoes, squirrels, mice, bats, etc. Yes, I said bats...twice!!! I don't know that you can tell from the picture, but the edge below the pine cone edge was trimmed off, so the card does not stand up properly.

World Card Making Day is almost here. Are you ready for some fun? I hope that you have been making cards to send to friends, family and good causes. Getting mail puts such a smile on your face, doesn't it?

The pinecone border is really gorgeous. This whole layout is adorable. I had squirrels once - the whole family, nest and all - it was quite the excitement for us four females.

I love the pine cone border. Such a neat story and great inspiration. It's so nice in the country, but I know what you mean by keeping nature outside. My sister once had a bear come up to her back sliding door while the slider was open. He just sat there leaning against the screen while her 2 cats were spazzing out and hissing. She grabbed the cats, left the room and closed the family room door behind her and went upstairs to watch out the window until he finally left. Talk about scary.
