Handy Man Don

Hello and welcome my blog friends. Between having to re-do a card and unsuccessful experiments I didn't have anything to post for a week. Yesterday was time to quit messing around and get busy.

My b-i-l is remodeling a house so I wanted to make his birthday card with a "carpentry" theme. I found this digi image on KQR Stampede after seeing it on Pinterest. To color "Handy Man Don" I used Bic Mark It, Spectrum Noir & Copic markers. Classic and Scalloped Circle frame are Nestabilities. I lightly sponged Vintage Photo Distress Ink around "Handy Man Don". Tools are from the Silhouette Cameo. I cut Mounting Tape in tiny pieces to pop up the tools, except for the nails. For the background paper I Googled wood images.

Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon. Have a great day.

Take Care!
