A Little Crazy

Good morning and happy Thursday. Can you believe it's November already! It's also time for our 'Summer' holidays. Since we retired we've had our holidays in November and spent the Summer at home and boy was I glad that we did that this year. So the 'kids' are in charge of the house, which means a mass tidy up the day before we're due home, and a mega full washing basket!

We have a new challenge at Country View Crafts and I'm sure it will be a very popular one as it's the latest craze Artist Trading Coins. 

 My mini crazy cats and dogs have been stamped and cut out (thank goodness for these Framelits dies) and then coloured with Tim's Distress Markers.

Now I do love coins for coins sake, but sometimes you just need a card! I stamped my white card with the mini crazy accessories, and coloured with the Distress Markers. Just look at all that white space, it's quite frightening!

Then I just added the coins, and the sentiment from my 'go to' Tim set. And there we are, a card made with hours to spare lol.
I hope that you join in with our fun challenge,  I'll be off the grid for a few weeks, so I'll catch up when I get back.

Have a happy November, and thanks very much for looking x
