One for the Squirrel!

Good Morning to you, and thank you so much for visiting me!
So normally at this time of day (6:45am) I would be just arriving at work and sipping on a vanilla latte to try and get into gear....but not today, oh no....'cos its my birthday, woohoo and I'm treating myself to a much deserved day off!
There are four of  us at work, that have birthdays on consecutive days, and the card I am sharing here is for my lovely friend whose birthday falls tomorrow. She is very involved with the Scout movement and her "name" within that is Squirrel, so every year I try and make her a Squirrel themed birthday card (I made a flowery card last year and she was most disappointed!)
Went for a very simple paper piecing here, with an outline drawing printed onto my DP. The papers are Papermania capsule collection: Eau de Nil - this stack was an early birthday pressie from the hubby. I used a Nellie Snellen circular die and a Martha Stewart border punch, finished with ribbon and button.

I would like to enter this into:
crafting from the heart - anything goes
creatalicious challenges - happy birthday
natalie and amy - four legged friends
sweet stampin - paper pieced _ hope this counts as a digi stamp
chocolate, coffee and cards - black, white and one other colour

A small update from my previous post......went to the cinema last night and saw A Fault in their stars.....loved it, such an endearing story and bit of a tearjerker too!!! (Mrs Bearhouse, you must borrow your daughters copy of the book)

Have lovely day....whatever you get up to!
