While The Weeds Get Watered

Hello.  Welcome.  A bit of a grey day so I am grabbing some time to craft.  Using a 'new to me' stamp from Crafty Individuals.  I was very lucky and won a recent giveaway at the Crafty Individuals blog.  This was one of the stamps I won.  And chocolate!!  Wow, inspiration never tasted so good.  Thanks so much Jean.  Hugz

I've kept this pretty simple and even foregone the proverbial inked edges.  I stamped CI Boy's Toys using Colourbox chalk Arctic Deep and Plumeria.  I fussy cut the purple boy and stuck him on the turquoise background.  I used a  turquoise card and stamped a border using a Stamplorations mixed media stamp and the same turquoise ink.  Love the tone on tone effect.  I ripped around the edges of my image.  The sentiment is from MFP Tigers set.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hoping to catch up on a few challenges today so stay tuned.  Hugz
