Farm Boy

Hi friends! Another card to share with you today. I'm getting this one done under the wire. It's for The Outlawz Progressive Freebie challenge. If you haven't signed up yet and joined The Outlawz, you should. They have a different challenge every day. Always something going on for everyone. For this challenge, they will give you the image for free. All you have to do is use it to make your project for that month and post it on The Outlawz website. You could also win prizes! For this month, I wanted to really show off the image, so I sized him up a bit to fit on a long card. I just love making long cards. I also paired him with my new Dog Treats stamp by Julie Nutting from Prima.  Every boy has to have a dog, right!

I didn't do too much with it. Just used the designer paper mostly (October Afternoon's Farm Girl collection). I did get out one of my dies to kind of fill in that space on the right and added a bit of twine. I used Copic markers for the coloring. I really like the way his hair turned out.

Looking forward to Friday and the weekend. It's been a rough one here. I've been transferring frozen food each night from the old freezer to the new one to get it evened out. I can't do too much at once because it's so hot in the garage that if I keep the door open too long, the temp inside the freezer goes up quickly.

I am submitting this card for the following challenges:
