Are You Lost?

Happy Tuesday all, glad to have Monday out of the way this week!  I'm a bit like Garfield I'm afraid, love lasagne and not very good with Mondays!!

Anyhoo, this month over at Penny Black And More the challenge for March is One For The Boys, and at By The Cute And Girly the challenge is Favourite Things.

I needed to make a birthday card for Toad's brother and this is what I came up with

Stamped image is Penny Black/Mo Manning "Explorer"
Painted in one of my all time favourite things, Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sorry, no colour list for this one
The map background is from an old atlas, and the other papers are a mixture of another favourite, Nitwit
The sentiment is yet another favourite from LOTV - the For Him Sentiments set
And of course, delicious Card Candi from Craftwork Cards

Poor little chap, hope he finds his way soon!

I'd like to take the opportunity to say hello to my new Followers who have signed up over the last few days, welcome aboard.  I hope to be able to keep you entertained and informed!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Gorgeous card Squirrel, I love the map background - very innovative of you :D I love upcycling stuff - I have a Harry Potter book that's falling apart, I've replaced it with a shiny new one and I'm dying to use the pages for crafting...but I just can't seem to bring myself to it haha! It feels like bookocide :(
