Tag Tuesday - Autumn Leaves, Acorns and Conkers

I couldn't keep my eyes open a moment longer last night and went to bed admitting defeat - I missed the deadline for Tag Tuesday - in fact I couldn't believe it was Tuesday again already!  I started out thinking I wanted to depict a memory of taking my eldest, then my youngest to visit my Gran many years ago.  He was about two and we in a 'proud parent' moment asked him to tell his Gran a joke and we nearly fell off our chairs when he, instead of starting with 'knock, knock'....repeated parrot fashion a joke about a squirrel swimming on his back that has a punch line that is some what risqué!  No matter as when we quickly took a look at my Gran who was smiling indulgently and we knew as much as Damian had no idea why the joke was funny neither did my Gran....Phew!

Unfortunately I could not think how to make a backstroking squirrel so here is as far as I got last night......

Then my hand was yawning as well as my head so this morning I got back to it and.......late I know but I didn't want to miss a week completely!

This tag opts for a somewhat less risqué use of the word 'Nuts!'  Though I should confess the acorns at the bottom of the tag had to be hastily rearranged before the silicone glue dried when I took a step back to view my composition!!

If you are wondering why I am making a tag that features leaves and acorns and you love tag art then follow this link to see what the Tag Tuesday team have been up to.
