Springtime Card for Cute Card Thursday

The task this week on Cute Card Thursday challenges is Spring, so I thought of this little gardener Boo bear. The bear, flowers, watering can and trowel are all die cuts from Go-Kreate (stockists listed earlier this week). The black square is embossed with swiss dots, but doesn't show up in the photo.
Not that it feels very springlike yet, still rather cold and damp. I am no gardener, luckily these days we only have a tiny back garden, a patio garden with lots of pots of flowers, I can just about deal with those. We also have a very large oak tree at the end, that is home to what seems to be multi-occupancy families of squirrels, and they love the contents of my pots as well, so I am frequently to be seen dashing out to scare them off. I bought some spray called 'Squirrelgon' and unfortunately they seem to love that as well, just sit on the fence sniffing the air when I spray it around them. Hooligan rodents!

Very cute. I love the idea of spring as well, I think we have more snow in our forecast :). Have you tried sprinkling cayenne pepper where you don't want the critters? (I know it'll keep cats out of my garden- it kind of stings their noses so they don't come back). Take care and TFS your card.

Very cute spring card :-) Love the bear!
Had to laugh about your squirrels, they are cute though aren't they. When I lived there I used to set up obstacle courses for them to get food and they always found ways to get to it, they're very clever :-)
