Sometimes Life Can Get Messy

How do ya'll like this sweet little baby?  He is called Buskettie by Mo Maning.  Isn't that a fun name too?  I won him in Sassy Raggedy's Candy.  I was so excited that I sat down and colored it the very day I received it.  I designed in red, white, and blue to enter into Mo's challenge last week, but I missed the deadline.  I got lucky though because this weeks challenge is a "Thank You Card".

Inside Sentiment

It is colored with Copics.  Everything on the card is from my stash.  The Spellbinder used is a Lattice Rectangle.  The threads are some heavy embroidery floss, the button was in my button box.  The sentiment comes with the rubber stamp set which you can get from Stamping Bella.   It is #M0174.  The sentiment is just a rectangle shaped piece of card stock and cornered punched with a CM corner punch.  Gems are from my stash and I inked the edges with Pearlescent Sky Blue Brilliance Ink Pad.  I wove the blue embroidery floss around the card to add a messy, but colorful  border.  

The inside sentiment was created by me in MS Word.  I did some doodling and distressing to give it that aged, country feel.  The red tabs were punched with a SU tab punch.  The black squares are Starform stickers

The card is outside of my normal comfort zone, but DH is always encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone and try something different.  I am still deciding if I am pleased with the string borders, but I posted it, so I guess I am OK with it.  LOL. 

Have a Great Memorial Weekend if you are living in the States.  Take some time to offer up some prayers or just heartfelt thanks for all our military have done and continue to do for us.  They and their families make so many sacrifices to protect us and allow us to live in this great USA.  For all my friends across the pond.  Have a fabby weekend and make some time to relax and craft.  

Love ya'll!!!
