I usually sit at my dining room table every morning to check things on my laptop.  I get the morning sun and a good view of my bird feeders.  This morning I saw the funniest thing.  We have a problem with neighborhood cats running loose.   I don't like this, especially when they catch one of my birds but today it was worth the entertainment.  A cute little black and white cat was fascinated by the squirrels.  He chased one from the neighbor's to a tree by my feeders.  He sat at the base of the tree and watched, waiting for it to come back down.  As the squirrel approached the ground, the cat ran around the tree to get it.  The squirrel scampered back up and the cat watched as it went higher and higher. When he decided it wasn't coming back down, he noticed another squirrel across the street and took off after it.  I have never seen cats chase squirrels before and wonder what would  happen if he caught one. 

Today's card is for a double challenge:  Fantabulous Cricut - Pilgrim's Progress and Die Cuttin' Divas color challenge - use orange, yellow, brown and one other color.

The image is cut from A Child's Year and the top note from Elegant Edges.  With the pilgrims in dark brown, I used white as my other color to make them stand out and carried that out through the shadow and card base. 

I have to get busy and make 8 more Thanksgiving cards to send to the homebound people from my church.  This is a labor of love that I have taken on to show these members that we have not forgotten about them.  I also send birthday and other seasonal cards, signing them all "from your church family".

Have a great day!  I hope to see you back here soon.
