Wednesday 29 November 2023 a squirrel!

 Hi everyone, I had already started this page when we decided to take a walk in a local park - Marie Louise Gardens as we were passing.       We hadn't been there since 2020 - it is a short walk away from our apartment and is well known for squirrels coming up and taking food from offered hands.

Hubby had walked on a little as I saw this squirrel coming towards me -  My first thought was 'Aah! Cute' but as it came closer and closer I became convinced that it was going to jump on to me to see what I had in my hand so I took the cowards away out and stamped my feet at it!

Sorry, rambling page for Jo's fabulous 'Nature' theme at Art Journal Journey......

I stamped an Aall and Create leaf stamp in different Autumn colours on the page then used Stamperia paper and images along with a freebie quote.

Here are more photos of the park.

The Gardens are named for a local lady and were made especially in her memory - you can read the tragic story HERE

For such a small park there was so much lovely Autumn colour!
I'm sure you know what we did next!

Thanks for looking, Chris

The park looks gorgeous in the sun, but what a sad story. The squirrel wouldn't have hurt you, there is a regular at Kew who feeds them often and they climb all over him on the bench..

Your assertive squirrel wouldn't make me happy, but your art squirrel wins the popularity award. Isn't it a great image? You made a super page, and it looks like you had a nice walk also.Have a great rest of your week. hugs-Erika

The squirrels on your page are cute, and you're Autumn photos of the park are stunning. What happened to the bold squirrel?

Such a beautiful page! The leaf background is the perfect backdrop for those pretty Stamperia papers and I love those red squirrel images 😊. I would have stamped my feet to stop the squirrel too. Hugs, Jo x
