A Big Burly Moose!

I'm back for one more post today!! I'm trying to get caught up on a couple of challenges today and this is for the Friday Hanna Stamps challenge - today's challenge is to use Embossing on your card - you can view the challenge here. I chose to dry emboss on my card using the Cuttlebug "Branches" embossing folder on my brown panel - and what a perfect folder for our Lumberjack Riley!! I stamped some trees in SU! Old Olive ink and cut them out for the background as well (they are from the MFT "Nature Calls" set). I decided to make my Riley a big more rough and rugged by adding some scruff to his face with my Copic Multiliner pen - hee hee...Stampin' Di did this on one of her Rileys and I just thought it looked adorable - thanks for the inspiration Di!! I also drew and colored some clothes on him - I was thinking that "The Naked Woodsman" sounded a lot like a Monty Python sketch gone wrong so I decided that maybe he needed some clothes too - LOL!! I colored him in with Copics. The sentiment was done with Doodlebug Simply Sweet mini rub-on letters - I love these - I get them in the $1.99 bin and Archiver's - the font is great and they are perfect for when you can't quite find that sentiment you are looking for in your stamp collection.

Also - I wanted to let everyone know that if you haven't seen the list of blog candy winners for last Friday's Good Luck Blog Hop - Kristi has it posted here. Check it out and if you haven't PM'ed Kristi with your deets and you are a winner - make sure you do so she can get your goodies out to you!! And speaking of blog candy - thanks to all my wonderful readers - I went over 30,000 hits this week - WOO HOO!!! As a thank you - I've got a SWEET surprise up my sleeve for next week - so check back then!! Have an awesome weekend!!
