Crafting In A Topsy Turvey House

Happy Hump Day all!
It's Wednesday & that means super new challenge at 
The theme this week is
Home Improvements (with the tool man!)
Here's my card!

I made a 6x6 inch card base from my brand new Kraft cardstock.
It's pretty CAS as my stash is still packed up in boxes!
One day we'll be finished with all the DIY & redecorating here!

The image I have used is Pierre Painter, he's a real perfectionist & when
 he's decorating it takes him forever to do the cutting in! lol
I coloured him up with my Promarkers

I made the sentiment in my graphics programme.
I added some ink distressing to the edges.

I decorated the inside of my card a little.
The DP I've used is a freebie from Mujka Chic @ My Grafico.
The Ric Rac has been in my stash forever, I had loads of it!
I think it's from Anita's I'm so glad to finally be using it up!
Make sure you check out the Dude & Dudette's creations at
Dude Time Doodles for more inspiration before you play along!

  6. A super card Dawn, I love the colours and the sentiment x

  7. You are doing all kinds of things - DYI and the wonderful supportive things you have done for Breast Cancer Research and your Mom! Wow! I am so impressed!

    I love this card. I had actually thought about using this image too as I love it. I am the world's worst home painter. My husband is horrified when he watches me because I often paint with artist brushes around the edges and corners. Just feels more comfortable for me, but takes forever (in fact, I have two paint projects going on right now and one has been going on for over a year - I hate to admit it). So you can see that I can totally relate to your card! LOL! Well done. Hugz!
