This "Hoppy" little guy is for the Way to use It Challenge at SC. The Challenge WT287 was to use twine. It really works well with this stamp and gives it that down home feel. You can almost smell the creek, can't ya? And those buttons... got to love Grandma!! The top button still has her thread in it. She must've cut it off something and threw it in her tin. I can spend hours, literally, going thru her tin of buttons and do-dads.
And here is the "Lime Rickey" paper from Basic Grey that I used on the Light Switch covers. I love this paper!!
He's a busy little guy in a few challenges today. His next event is at Penny Black Saturday Challenge. This weeks challenge is a card for a man or boy. Being the mom of two grown men (still hard to think about them like that.. still my babies at 6' 4" and 6' 6"!!) I have a lot of memories of snakes, frogs, pollywogs, crawfish... anything they could catch.
Then he is jumping (hopping..lol) to Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge. This months challenge is to Punch it up! I chose the punch I did (Fiskars) because I thought it sort of resembled a bandana.
Then he's off to Basic Greys challenge with a slight modification. He had to change clothes because the challenge there is paper piecing. Can you spot the difference??
Thanks for taking time out of your day to come and visit me!
oh, and geesh.. almost forgot. He was colored with Copics. Sorry, I colored this awhile back so I could not be 100% certain. I wish I was because I really liked how his straw hat turned out. **Note to self** write it down.. lol!!
