Look at these cute little note cards!  Cindy designed these as one of the Make&Takes for my last PAWS meeting.  She used all five of the 2011 In-Colors – Pool Party, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral and Wisteria Wonder.  These are 3×3 folded notes.  The fronts are embossed with the polka dot embossing folder and then a strip of card stock is added to the front.  The flower from the Mixed Bunch stamp set and punched out with the coordinating Blossom punch.  The centers were stamped and punched with the 3/4″ circle punch and added to the flower with one of the In-Color brads.  On the side of each card is a half of the decorative label punch with one of the words from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set.

On the inside is a business message from the special stamp set that demonstrators were able to earn at convention last year.  There are some messages like “thank you for your order” and “Bring a Friend”.

I have a few wildlife pictures for you – the robin gathering materials for a nest.

And check out this squirrel that I saw the other day – I wonder who he stole that big apple from!

Its so big he has to stop along the way – or maybe he is just hungry and keeps stopping for a bite.  Here he continues on his way….

And here is another squirrel sitting on the wall – it looks to be a mama squirrel to me – maybe she is praying for the peanut feeder to open up for her.  The new feeder which is in the tree right behind her is squirrel proof – it shuts when the squirrel gets on it.

Have a great day!
