Cotton Eye Joe


     Where did ya come from?  Where did ya go?  Where did ya come from Cotton Eye Joe?  hee hee  This fella looks like he can cut a rug pretty well.  Guess  its all those loose legs and arms that make him such a good dancer. ☺
     Well, since it's the 1st Thursday in November, that means it's Anything goes time at Mo's Digital Pencil.  I'm still in the mood for fall cards so I decided to use "Scarecrow" from Mo's store.  He's colored with Copics and popped on top of a Nestie circle colored with Wild Honey Distress ink.  Nice harvest moon huh.  I used another of my MFT splurge dies to cut the hexagon border and dug through the rest of my box of dies to come up with those Cuttlebug leaves that I inked and added veins to and the OLLLLLDDDD Spellbinders die for the corn.  Had to give him some kind of veggie since he's a scarecrow.
     Since it's Anything Goes you can break out and use any Mo's image for the challenge this week.  Somebody will get lucky and win a $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's store so why not try and see if it could be you.
     Several of our DT members are located in the Northeast so please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they recover from Hurricane Sandy.

  24. Tracy, you know that song is an ear-worm, right? It just burrows in there and never leaves. This card is so happy. Love that image and the colours you've chosen for him are sweet. The quilt-look paper is perfect to make him feel right at home. Great way to use the hexagon border and to create a harvest moon. So fun!
