S.S. Hoppity

Welcome to the first challenge of the year at Lollipop Crafts! Today we have a fun sketch for you and I used our sponsor's image S.S. Hoppity by Robyn's Fetish. I'm seriously lacking in guy cards but I'm not sure this one qualifies with the stitching and cute rabbit but it will have to do! :D

One thing I try to do is keep it simple without over embellishing the cards - although that is hard to do sometimes. On this card, I used a decorative bottle cap but needed something to put in it. After hopelessly searching my stash for a suitable trinket, I ended up drawing a fish instead.

Did you know? The Founding Fathers of the United States were political leaders and statesmen who participated in establishing the American Independence by signing the Declaration of Independence, taking part in the American War for Independence, establishing the United States Constitution, or by some other key contribution. Within the large group known as the "Founding Fathers", there are two key subsets: the "Signers of the Declaration of Independence" and the "Framers of the Constitution".
