Crafty Catz Challenge 81 - Sentiment or Quote

Hello peeps!

Hope everyone had a good week!  It is another Friday and a brand new challenge over at Crafty Catz!  This week, Carol is hosting and she has chosen an easy challenge - we would love to see your cards or projects with a sentiment or quote on them!  Our fabulous sponsor this week is The Stamping Boutique and 5 digis or 3 digis and 1 set of digi papers is up for grabs for the lucky winner! 

For my card this week, I have used this cute 'Moose' image from The Stamping Boutique.  I coloured him with pencil crayons and attached him with dimensional foam.  When I dreamt this card up, I had intended the yellow diamond to look like a road sign, but now that it is complete, I think that might have been lost.  All of the papers are from Bo Bunny (Roughin' it collection and double dots).  The trees were paper pieced using the trees in the DP as a guide so they would coordinate well with the style of the paper.  I kept the embellishments simple as I wanted a masculine card, so I just added a little twine - I think that appeals to men?  Not sure, but it definitely appeals to my cat.  If I want her help with a card, all I have to do is dig out the ball of twine.  Oh, I almost forgot the sentiment - it was computer generated (yes, I know, another pun.  Is there a support group for that?)

If you have not already done so, make sure you check out the rest of the talented DT's cards!  I hope you are able to join us this week; can't wait to see all your wonderful creations!

I would also like to enter this card in the following fun challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Paper piecing or piercing
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
Here Come the Boys - Anything goes

Thanks for visiting and for taking the time to leave a comment!  I love reading them!
