I "Carrot" Bout You!

Made this cute little card and almost forgot to post!!  Must be all the stress from two snow days and two days with a two hour delay from school this week.  In other words, too much free time!!

House Mouse and Friends challenge this week is “Friends”.  These two little guys sharing a carrot is what friendship is all about.  No, not eating (though my friends and I do a lot of that).  It is all about time together and sharing.  My friends and I do even more of that.

The image is colored with Tombow markers and I just couldn’t resist using my favorite “carrot” die from Spellbinders.  I sponged it with Orange Marmalade Distress Ink, distressed the edges, and added some Tea Dye Distress Ink on the edges.  Then I die cut some greenery, added a little variation of color with Distress Inks, and tucked them behind the “carrot”.

The little tag came with the background cardstock from DCWV.  I trimmed it down and tucked a little more greenery behind it.  The background layers are distressed and a little faux stitching added.

Love these little guys.

You are SO CLEVER to put that darling image inside the ornament die to look like a turnip root or something - FABULOUS colors and design, of course, Marie! Hope your week is a good one, and that things continue to look up for you! hugs, de
