Gruffies Wonderful Friend Card

I've had this card in edit mode for a couple of weeks, but didn't get it ready in time when the House Mouse Challenge theme was "moving". I was going to build a bamboo tree for the panda to carry with him on the skateboard. But I found myself wrapped up in too many projects, as usual, and didn't get it done. It is such a cute little image all by itself anyway, and anyone who would pull a panda on a skateboard most certainly is a wonderful friend!

These furry friends are colored with PrismaColors and blended with baby oil. The card itself is Kraft paper, as is the fence piece which is trimmed with the Martha Stewart picket fence border punch. I love that punch! The other papers are scraps from other projects and the flower is from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by! If you haven't joined in on the House Mouse Challenge blog yet you just must!! The images are beyond cute and the Design Team is ultra-talented. Pop over and take a peek! This week's theme is Weddings/Anniversaries.

Hi Barb, this is so gorgeous. Faabulous colouring and your picket fence is superb. Pity you didn't finish it in time to share on the challenge blog.

Ooooh! This card makes me SMILE:O) You have colored these adorable Gruffies wonderfully!!! Is there a coloring medium you can't use perfectly? Not a chance!!! Everything you color and create is a masterpiece!!

Oh, and if you want, I could pull you around on a skateboard...but I very much doubt my big behind would fit on a trike;o) Hahaha!!

Love Ya!!
