Snips & Snails! Fairy Fun Friday Challenge!

Hey y'all! Hope everyone is having a great Saturday! I am back with another Fairy Fun Fridays challenge card to show ya! It is a little late because we have a sick fur baby...he has a badly sprained left elbow. Poor thing! He is laying on the couch by me now as I post...won't leave my side! At least the pain meds the vet gave him seem to be helping. Just praying for a speedy recovery for our sweet Sid!

So, this week the fab Roberta gave us the challenge of distressing on our projects. This has to be one of my favorite techniques and I tend to do it on a lot of my projects! So easy and I always love the effect! This sweet little snail is called Snail's Tale and is from Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps and you can find him right HERE! I have had my eye on this little guy for quite awhile and, since I needed a new baby boy card, this was the perfect image! I colored him using my Prisma pencils and pop dotted him for the 3-D effect. All of the patterned papers are from the Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride collection, and the cardstock is CTMH. I tore the edges of my papers and then used some fun orange Studio G ink to add some extra oomph! The ribbon is by Basic Grey and I printed the sentiment on my computer, but can't remember the name of the font for the life of me! All I do know is that I love this font!

Hop on over to the Fairy Fun Fridays site to check out all the DT inspiration and play along with us...there are always great prizes and GDT's to be won! Also, check out Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps...Roberta just added some new images this week and they are just wonderful! Happy Scrappin'!
