Sisters of Craft "Anything Goes" September Challenge

Well, after a very wet, windy and miserable Bank Holiday Monday yesterday, we now have blue sky and sunshine on the 1st September !  Isn't that just typical !  Many local events were ruined yesterday due to the bad weather, I bet the organisers aren't happy today looking out at how lovely it is.  Such a shame after all the hard work they put into things.

Of course the 1st of the month heralds a new challenge for us, and this time our sponsor is The Paper Nest Dolls.

 
 
The prize is a mystery $25 stamp package for those in the U.S., and for those outside it's 8 digis from the store.
 
Here is my card....Introducing "Hammock Owen"...
 
 

Firstly I dusted the digi with Faded Jeans Distress Ink, then coloured in with promarkers.    I used a piece of holiday themed backing paper by Krafty Hands, (I thought the palm trees went well with a hammock !), and edged the digi with a selection of my many buttons, tying a thread of  bakers twine in one of them.  I have a bit of a thing for buttons, and usually just look at them and put them away again, but I thought it was about time I used a few !  Then just for fun I added googley eyes to Owen and his dog, so they follow you around the room !  I found some epoxy stickers and used the "Enjoy" one in the corner.  Hope you like it.

Come and join in the fun at www.sistersofcraft.blogspot.com

We also have a new Facebook group where you can share all your makes and join in various competitions, just look us up and pop by !  Here's the link ....https://www.facebook.com/groups/135585893441223/permalink/166952850304527/
