Blessed Indeed Is The Man.........



I have said it over and over again that images and stamps talk to me.  Well I had picked out one stamp that I was going to use for this week's challenge but then while browsing through The Digi Doodle Shop's wondrous stamps this one yelled out to me.  I have said I would start making some male oriented cards and I think this one fits the bill.  The name is Old Corn Storage Bin and is a mere $1.50.

The Challenge this week at Digi Doodle Shop's Best  is an EZ one.
ANYTHING GOES!!!
We are also being sponsored by Whimsy Stamps who are giving the winner a $15.00 gift certificate.  So what are you waiting for!!! Anything you make will fit.



I colored my image with copics and I swear it was like I used every brown I had and blended like crazy. To give my shed an old look I finished it off with W3 a warm grey. Since I had sooooooooo much brown in my picture I chose to make my tree a old birch. I hope it looks like one. Chalk gave me my sky and grass.  A bit of stickles and and just a hint of glossy accents finished off the image.  The sentiment was computer generated and reads" Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!" I thought the sentiment had a soft and faithful feeling that fit well with the old Storage Shed! To finish my card I tied a bit of raffia on and as a homage to my dear friend Harriet I added three buttons. I figured a Father would be bursting his buttons with pride!

So come on over and show us what you've got. Remember ANYTHING GOES!!!
