Happy Saturday, peeps! Late today---it's been a lazy kind of day, tons of rain this morning and now it's cleared up so I think I might go out for a walk! But first, a birthday card for my BIL, using the sketch from Fab Friday:
That frame is so cool, and perfect for the Stitched Rectangle dies! I haven't used Country Road too often, so I did some random stamping to make my own background, framed by Early Espresso and Crumb Cake:
I used Sahara Sand for my images, stamping off for lighter images, and I also added a few rustic images from Timeless Textures. Country Road has a lovely birthday sentiment, so I stamped that on the front in Early Espresso too:
Finally, I added a little ribbon embellishment and a Corrugated Element that I punched out with a retired star punch and sponged with some EE ink:
And speaking of country, John has had a critter making itself comfy under one of his sheds, more than likely a groundhog, but he set up a Have-a-Heart trap, and this morning came out to find this:
John was a little confused because he never saw an opossum quite this color; they're usually darker and this one was pretty light-colored. He pretended to be asleep:
John took him back to the woods, opened the cage and "encouraged" him to come out, where he sleepily scampered through the brush!
We've caught groundhogs, squirrels, raccoons, opossums and skunks in our traps....can't wait to see what we get next, LOL! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
