Hi and welcome just a quickie from me today.

Isn't he just the cutest little Squirrel.
Its from Clearly Besotted Stamps not only do they do the stamps they do a die as well which means you don't have to cut it out by hand :)

I teamed this up with a paper from one of the Dreamees CD's 
Along with some pearls from Hobby House.
