The little things that make me happy here on Bliss Road~~Emily Keaton

Just a quick post to share a card I made for yesterday's SCS CAS challenge, to be inspired by the word "delicious." While we were on vacation, my sister shared some Big Triple Nut Bars by Planters to restore our flagging energy reserves while at an amusement park. Wow!! These chewy delights boast honey-roasted peanuts, almonds, cashews, and a sprinkling of granola. Talk about delicious!! We couldn't wait to go out and buy more for ourselves. These delicious treats inspired my "I'm Nuts about you!" card featuring this adorable little squirrel out collecting--what else??--nuts!

This is a sneak peek of a new set called Autumn Fun, scheduled for release from Mark's Finest Papers next week. I thought the sentiment was perfect for Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #18, to make a friendship card! And my monochromatic color scheme was inspired by this sweet Brown Owl Ring from The Caged Fairy Etsy shop, as part of this week's EtsyInspired Challenge #103.

Thanks for stopping by my little slice of bliss today!

Stamps: MFP Autumn Fun
Paper: MFP hazelnut tan CS, MFP Snow Storm ultra smooth finish CS
Ink: Palette burnt umber
Accessories: CM corner rounder punch, scissors, dimensionals

P.S. Be sure to check out the Jillibean Soup GIVEAWAY that Mandy has on at Limelight Paper Crafts. A winner will be drawn on Friday, September 3!
