So glad I stayed home and celebrated "World Card Making Day" rather than go to the 'Shoe and witness a team that is truly LOST in every sense of the word.

I made this card today using Rubbernecker's new "Sleepy Hollow Tree" (SKU:590) from the brand new Halloween release. However, rather than a Halloween card, I teamed it with the Rubbernecker image of "Ethel Nailing" (SKU:562-04) and sentiment "Reward for Dog" (SKU:563-11), both from the Old Characters series.

On Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, I stamped Ethel using Marvy black dye ink. I colored her with Copic markers and paper-pieced her shirt with a scrap of patterned paper (sorry, source unknown). I then cut around Ethel using my Cutter-bee scissors.

On another sheet of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, I sponged clouds using SeaShells Cloudy Blue dye ink. I then, stamped the tree by coloring Tombow markers directly to the rubber. I also used colored pencils to add more color to the bark and grass. Additional blades of grass were drawn in using Tombow markers. I placed Ethel into the scene, and added the small missing sign, which was drawn.

The scene was framed with white and blue cardstock.

Finally, I stamped the hilarious sentiment into the scene using Marvy black dye. (Disclaimer about the sentiment: should my husband and dog be missing simultaneously, an equal reward would be offered for their safe return).

And, at this point, I think a reward is warranted for the return of the Ohio State offense.
