I love to think of nature
as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

'Hedge'-y Note - Whimsy Grunge

Another out of the ordinary lay out tonight.  All those arrows had me seeing tags, lots and lots of tags.  So I cut lots and lots of tags!  :D  I made this card primarily as a masculine card but seeing as I had to incorporate some peach color for the challenge, I chose a couple peach tags and peach thread.  The sentiment on the last tag is a digital stamp from Whimsy Stamps, just altered a bit using brown instead of black on my computer and ran through the printer a few times.  The green 'coin' in the slot was a fluke.  The space it is in is actually a ticket, but the slit popped open.  So, I decided to slip in the stamped circle as sort of a coin.  The hedgehog digital stamp I thought gave the card a little bit of fun ---'whimsy grunge'.

CHALLENGE:  ColourQ #43

Stamps:  Digital hedgehog - DigiDoodle Shop.  Sentiment - Whimsy Stamps.  Leaf flourish - mini stamp from stash.
Paper:  Bermuda Bay, Old Olive - StampinUP!, Peach , white, and light brown -stash.
Ink:  Staz On Timber Brown; Vintage Photo distress ink - Tim Holz.  Sienna brown watercolor pencil - Prismcolor.
Extras:  Peach embroidery thread. Patchwork emboss folder - Tim Holz.  Tag Die - Sizzix.

Well, August is literally around the corner ---30 minutes to be exact.  I guess that means we will be entering the dog days of summer, although around here it has already been like that for some time.
