Squirrel-themed Pocket Letter with Thank-you Tag

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a pocket letter with thank-you tag! My theme is all about squirrels, but I did sneak in a hedgie and bunny!  I made some of these ATCs last month but this is the first chance I've had to share them. Two of my ATCs are shakers! An ATC measures 2.5" x 3.5", and nine of them are needed for a pocket letter. I like to add a tag to my pocket letters as well! To read more about making pocket letters, see here and here. I'll share each ATC separately, along with details.

This card measures 3.5" x 5" and occupies two pockets.

I haven't had time to work on the pocket letter I started but after I get some obligatory cards out of the way then I plan to get back to that.
