Scarecrow's Happy Thanksgiving - SNSDC74

Since it's Friday that means it's time for another Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge.  This is sort of an extra special week for me because it's my first official week as the Digi Challenge Design Team Coordinator.  :)

This week's challenge is a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  We're to use 3 items from the board below that will make a row horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

I chose to use the far right vertical column:  button, distressing & paper piecing.

I paper pieced the scarecrow's hat and overalls. {He is a new image for me and I think he's adorable.} The rest of the image was colored with copic markers.  The yellow panel was distressed with a distressing tool and ink. 

I sewed the button to the banner with jute and, instead of knotting it at the back, I tied it with a small bow on top of the button.  I added faux stitching with a brown fine point Sharpie marker.  I honestly don't remember how that particular marker got in my collection but it is SO useful.  :)

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific, Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  Crate Paper (Random)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digis (Happy Scarecrow, Gobble Gobble Sentiments)
Ink:  Colorbox Fluid Chalk (chestnut roan)
Embellishments/Tools:  jute (JoAnn's), button (La Mode), Copic Markers (Y17, Y38, Y35, Y11, Y000, YG03, YG05, B23, C-1, E02, E07, E11, E31, E33, E50), Spellbinders (Standard Circles Large & Small, Lacey Circles), 1/16" circle punch (used behind button), Sharpie fine point marker (brown)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a good weekend.  Sir Cuteness (aka our grandson) is coming for a visit so we're going to be kept hopping.  It's been a LONG time since we had an almost 3 yr. old running around our home. We're just a *little* excited.  :)

The faux stitching and the distressing are the perfect accents for this rustic image. Great job with the paper piecing!
Have lots of fun with your grandson! :)

This is super cute, Steph, and I agree...the digi is really adorable. You did a great job piecing him together. You also did a super job combining challenges, and I'm sure grateful that ours is one of them. It's always a blessing to see your sweet cards. Well, have fun with Sir Cuteness. I can't wait til we have grandbabies of our own. Hope it's a wonderful visit.
