One of Mo's Boys~

Hello Ladies~

What a totally gorgeous day, so warm and sunny, just what we need after all that snow last year.

I am getting very excited about my weekend away "Craft" shopping at Harrogate, it all starts at 8 tomorrow morning, I will try to show you all the goodies I buy after the weekend..

Oh, now then not too sure about today's card.....I am not always happy when I do the distressed look.
I visited Tab's blog the other morning and she said the same thing (mind you her work was gorgeous!) but I do think other people do distressing so good and then I do it and think Oh no!
Not sure If I am just a Clean lines girl! It won't stop me having a go tho', 'cos I love all types of crafting, I am not afraid to have a go even if I am not happy with the end result.
Next week I will be keeping in touch, visiting you all, but I have a Scrapbook to start, so I will not be making as many cards. I am hoping I will be able to show you some of the pages and Layouts I get made, but will have to ask permission to show them first, hopefully they will say yes!

So onto today's card the "depressed, I mean distressed" card in question!
The gorgeous image is one of Mo's, Oh I do love her Digital Pencil, I don't think I have seen any of her images I don't like. Just recently I won her challenge and chose the little girl with the string of Strawberry's, so sweet.

Anyway this one is one of hers too, just look at this little dog, just waiting for the boys biscuit bits to fall off so he can eat them! LOL
Mind you it's mouth is a bit close to it, and his tongue is almost touching it....naughty dog!
I have used co-ordinates cardstock for the background and the embossed sheet, embossed with a Tim Holtz folder. Coloured with Pro-Markers. I have used some twine/raffia and a sheet of Desert and Blooms stripy paper,(Gorgeous paper, every sheet!) Finished with some Platinum Stickles.
