So this is a little funny. I was checking A Day For Daisies challenge a few days ago to see what the new theme was. It was "Flocking". I thought, cool. Birds. I like birds.No, flocking as in fuzzies. Noooo! Don't make me do this! I always swore I would not stoop to buying fuzzies in a bottle. Well you'll be glad to know ( I think) that I didn't. I just asked my hubby for some belly button lint.
ROFL. Ok, I didn't do that either. :-)
After politely declining to make a card this week after viewing the challenge, "Sorry. No flocking. Can't do it." Tracy sent me a link on how to make flocking. Thats right. How to make fuzzies. Like I said, our hubbies have it all worked out. (Hey I'm running low on black, can you wear your star wars shirt today?) But no, they want you to get a cheese grater and shred paper to make fuzzies.
Seriously! People think us crafters will do anything!
Well I used the sharp edge of a scissor blade with much the same results.
My daughter was like, "Oooh cool you're making fuzzies!" Yup, Moms are the smartest things evah!

So have a good look at the tail. Pretty rustic, huh? Like a well loved teddy bear with its fur all nappy. lol
It makes me laugh just looking at it, so thanks Tracy, I needed that!
