Nuts about you

Good morning!  Well my computer is almost back to normal after a major meltdown (I think it was caused by the latest AVGfree update) in which I lost everything and had to reformat.  Thankfully I did a backup earlier this month, so I have only lost about 20 days worth of stuff.  It's going to take me a while to get sorted again though (not what I had planned to do this weekend)!

I have a Pollycraft card to share today using the adorable Barclay.  Sadly Pollycraft is closing it's doors on June 8th, but Paula is hosting a nostalgic linky party over on her blog for everyone to show off their favourite Pollycraft creations.  If you don't have any Pollycraft digis, you are missing out and there's no excuse not to get some before the shop closes as Paula is having some amazing closing down deals!

Here's my card:

Isn't he sweet?!  The papers are a mixture from Crate Paper, Authentique and the kraft card from Making Memories (I think?).  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the little acorn charm is from my stash (I think I purchased it from The Secret Garden on Da Wanda).  The sentiment is from Pollycraft from the Critters and Cogs collection.

I coloured Barclay with copics and sponged clouds in with distress inks, but I also added some water to the clouds to soften them.

Here's a close-up:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges as well as joining the Linky Party at Tales from Pollycraft:
Mad for Markers: Masculine colours
SJ Papercrafts: All about the boy plus something old from your stash (the acorn charm and the kraft card)

Have a lovely day!
