OWH MARCH ODBD CHALLENGE

Hello sweet friends! Well, the day has come and gone, and so has our son. He is either on his way to Ft. Benning or already there.  I wonder how he felt at 04:30 this morning when they made him get up?  LOL I know I’m glad I don’t have to get up that early!  All those years of working, I got up at 05:00 5 days a week.  I do not miss that at all!
Today’s card was so much fun to make.  I decided to play around with a digital package from Doodle Pantry called  Cocoa Ants.  I will be entering it in several challenges, but I’ll go into that later. Let’s check out the card:

I have seen these little ant digi’s before and think they are really cute, so I chose this one to play with.  The papers on the two strips are also from the set.  The two big panels are card stock from Craftwell. They matched so perfectly I just had to use them!  The yellow-gold panel was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and then rubbed with Broken China Distress Ink to highlight the circles.

Here is a close-up of the digi. It is a pre-colored one so I can’t take credit for the coloring.  I did use a Sakura Gelly Roll pen to color the edge of the tag which is Spellbinders Labels Eighteen.  Beaded Ovals and Fancy Labels are beneath.

The sentiment is also from the set.  The flowers are Prima and the border punch is from EK Success.  I actually like how this card turned out! I might have to try some more of these digi’s!!
AROUND MY HOUSE:
I know I have been talking about my son quite a bit but I have never shown you his picture.  I made him let me take a picture just before we left for the recruiters office, and of course he had to be silly, but I will share it anyway.

He decided before Christmas that he was not going to get another haircut until the Army cuts it, so he looks pretty scruffy here!  He is my baby, so we have an empty nest here now.  Well, almost empty; we have Joy to keep us entertained now!!!
NOW FOR THOSE CHALLENGES:
Operation Write Home* March ODBD Challenge TIC-TAC-TOE ~ Choose three elements that are in a row either vertically, horizontally or diagonally and incorporate them on your card. I chose Digi stamp/Layers/Embossing.
