So distressed!


I wish we could de-stressed ourselves with a bit of sandpaper lol. I used one of my lovely housemouse images for this one. He is a farmer and I have been making cards for his wife for him for years so thought I go a little different this time. The papers are from DCWV Mango frost and coloured card from my stash, I used my copics to colour the images and added glitter. This boy loves his food, being a farmer I am sure he needs it lol so thought the sentiment fitted the image. The ribbon was a pressie from the lovely Claudia at DieCutsrus. I am entering this into the following challenges:
1. Housemouse Monday - distressing
2. A Crafty Little Place - followed their sketch
3. My Time to Craft - too cute!
4. Cards for Men - outdoors
5. The Crazy Challenge - cute and cuddly
6. Sweet stampin Challenge - yellow, green, orange and pink
7. Crafty Calendar - the great outdoors

Pinky this is adorable! We just said goodbye to a sweet robin family that spent their time on our front porch pillar. We saw her build the nest, sit patiently atop it, and then watched in awe as her 2 babies emerged over the week. They are now gone, leaving me with empty nest syndrome. heehee! This image conjured up that wonderful memory of seeing her feed those two little hungry mouths - what a great card you've created here!! Thank you for joining us at ACLP this week!
