"You Crock Me Up" and Tagged!

This has been a very busy week for me. I've had lots of company so have not had very much time to post. Hopefully I will get more time this week.

We are suppose to have a nice weather this week...and it looks like all our snow will be gone in a few days...Yay!!..Spring is finally on its way.

"You Crock Me Up"

I made this card using the SC170 sketch.

I've used 2 of High Hopes new Jungle stamps......the cute alligator "Samson" and the sentiment.."You Crock Me Up".

Samson and the sentiment are both on foam dimensionals.

All the dp is basic grey. I love basic grey paper.....it is so pretty I hate to cover it with too many embellishments.

The scalloped border is made with the coluzzle.

Samson is colored with prismacolor pencils(oms) and Twinkling h20's

Stamps: High Hopes ... "Samson" ...."You Crock Me Up"

Paper: whisper white, treasures cs, chocolate chip, basic grey

Ink: versafine black, close to cocoa

Accessories: cord, embroidery floss, stitching, coluzzle, metal coil, stickles.

Lovely card Ila!
I bought a edge distresser from Heidy Swapp on a fair this saturday. I think it's easier than the scissors. And it wasn't expensive :)
