Hey y'all! Happy Monday!
Hope your week is starting off right?!...

Today my kids returned back to school from vacation. Which I have somewhat mixed feelings about (surprisingly). lol Usually, I'm all for them going back to school because of how crazy things get when they're all home. Though, this time around they didn't do all too bad and I enjoyed not having to get up in the mornings and feel rushed (so to speak) to get them and everything ready to head out the door. Maybe because they're a little older now it's easier?...I'm not sure. However, I do need to get back on track with things, so it's probably good they started back. ;)

Anyhow, I found some time to create and after looking at some challenges, I thought I'd join in on the current Little Tangles Challenge.

I decided to pull out a Neat & Tangled set I haven't used in quite some time. I stamped my images on my coloring cardstock and then did some coloring with each of them. After, I used the matching dies with them. I then used a couple distress markers and paintbrush to add a little background to my card. Once dry, I added my images and sentiment. And to finish things off, I added some twine at the top of my card. Simple, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon! 


  1. Oh he is so stinkin' cute Shelly! :)

  2. Love how you colored his clothes!

  3. He's adorable, and dressed just right for this climate! Love him against the kraft background. Such a sweet card!! Love this one! Bev

  4. Perfect CAS masculine design Shelly, love how you added the detail of the background!

  5. What a dapper young lad, your lumberjack! And he certainly deserves to be the star of the stage after his chopping accomplishment! I'm sure having time to yourself is enjoyable while the kids are at school, but I also know that you love x love their company when they're home. Nice to have a bit of alone and together time, right?
