Well I'm back again with another card for the House Mouse Monday Challenge. As usual, I'm dragging the chain. The challenge this week was to make a male card. The sketch I used is from Sketch Saturday. Actually I love the sketch but I'm not 100% sure that I like the card I've made. Oh well, it's done now.
I stamped my image in Versafine Sepia ink and only coloured the crab as I wanted him to stand out. That's the part of the image that really cracks me up. rofl
Then I stamped some PSX shell stamps in the Versafine Sepia ink and mounted them on to the corner. The paper is Kaisercraft Cocco range and the cardstock is Bazzill Raw Silk range which I've had for years. I used the Sanded background from Stampin' Up and some ribbon from my stash. The scallop edge punch from Stampin' Up was used to make the scallop edge on the dsp.
This week hasn't been the best for our family. We lost our family dog, Pepper, who has lived at the farm ever since she arrived as a stray 10 years ago. My Dad is away and I've got the terrible job of telling Dad when he comes home tomorrow night. She hadn't been at all well so I took her to the vet on Friday but it was a Neurological problem which had been coming on and there wasn't anything anyone could do.
Bringing Pepper home was the longest 40 miles I've ever driven. At least she's at peace and out of pain.
Sorry, I don't usually post anything other than cards so if you've read this, Thank You.
