Inspiration Destination Challenge 19
This week at Inspiration Destination our sponsors are Sweet 7, Digital Delights and Doodle Pantry. I have used the image Raccoon Rascal from Doodle Pantry.
The card blank is by Joanna Sheen. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and after cutting into a rectangle I smudged the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. The backing paper is a printed sheet of leaves - sorry can't remember who made this paper but I've debossed it with a Crafter's Companion leaf embossing folder. I matted it on to black card as the base mat for the image. The 'Hi there' sentiment comes with the image but I generated 'remember me' on the computer and I matted them both on to black card before adding three Mei Flower pearls to the edge of each. Three die cut leaves have been added as extra embellishments.
When we were in Florida at Christmas I was in bed one night and heard scurrying on the roof. I listened for a while and then fell asleep. The next morning at breakfast I told my two sons and daughters in law that I'd heard a raccoon on the roof and had they heard it? They all fell about laughing, I'm deaf and I'm sure they thought I'd imagined it. Tim said "if anything, it was probably a possum" and I just kept quiet. A couple of days later guess what we saw in the garden? Yes, it was my raccoon. Mother was right again! Here he/she is:
Unfortunately this is going to be my last post as designer for Inspiration Destination. I've got a problem with my eyes which is making it increasingly difficult to keep up with the commitments and so I've had to retire gracefully. I'll certainly miss all the friends I've made with this group but I'm sure I'll eventually be able to catch up with them all again.
