Let's Walk

Our Badge!!!Last month the Words to Scrap By challenge was in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  We loved seeing all the wonderful entries.  This month we're celebrating Movember--a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives.  I was recently inspired by Judy's card, so pulled out the darling Penny Black stamp--sunshine in the rain.  
The paper piecing & frame are done with some MME papers I thought worked for my masculine bear.  I did a bit of coloring with markers, too.  Tiny flower punches worked to cover up an oops, thank goodness--haha!  I die cut the frame using Lil' Inker stitched rectangles, mounted it with foam tape & added Stickles to the raindrops.  My favorite little Teresa Collins stickers make the sentiment. Walking is good exercise, so grab your galoches & Lets' Walk!  Hope you'll play along in our challenge this month: Changing the Face of Men's Health.

This has always been a favorite image of mine, and I love the way you've colored his multi-color raincoat. The chevron pattern on the frame echoes his raincoat in a nifty way, and it's just a wonderful card on this particular theme. TFS
