One evening, not too long ago while hubby was at work I heard noises on our deck, so I got up to check it out and here was a raccoon on my deck rail trying to reach out to the Bird Suet's I have on Shepard hooks. I have them there so I can sit in my living room and watch the birds. Now we have moved them over, since in the past they have not only taken the suet but they also took away the cage I have them in. I also have a suet holder that looks like a house and luckily they can open the top and just take out the suet so they have left that behind although I have found it on the ground, but I think that was the squirrels that time. Well this particular evening when I went out to scare it away I saw the shovel we still had on the deck from the last snowfall so I grabbed and yelled and banged the shovel on the deck rail to really scare it away for good hopefully. I told my hubby the story the next day and he had a good laugh picturing me with the shovel and trying to scare the raccoon, and he was remembering that when he came up with my card :)
My hubby drew this raccoon and he also drew the Suet house on the inside, using some of his dies from Memory box for the shepherds hook :) I am sharing the side that had to do with the raccoon, on the other side he wrote me a poem, but that is more personal ;)
Since we have had more snow I am working on some more Christmas cards. There were more accidents yesterday for those trying to get home from work yesterday, and they are saying tomorrow morning there is another chance of freezing rain, snow just to the north of us, that would be two weeks in a row without church if they have to cancel again.
Hope all is well where you are, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
