Snakeskin Challenge at RES-Q

The RESQ32 Challenge is to try a new technique.......faux snakeskin. Now before you go EEEEEEEAWWWWWW!!, take a look at how this tutorial works:

Isn't that fabulous, mostly because you KNOW we all save everything, so you surely have some of this netting stuff!!

This is my card for the challenge. Inside it says,

"He had a CAR???????"

My friends know I only make humorous St.Patrick's Day cards, so they will expect this. If you join the challenge, add RESQ32 to your keyword.

The Challenge today at SCS is to make a card that relates to one or more of the U.S. Presidents. I decided that since I am making my St. Patrick's Day cards, it would be only right to include the Presidents with Irish Roots. I was surprised by the list. Here they are:
Washington,Madison, Jackson, Polk, Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, Grant, Arthur, Cleveland, Harrison, McKinley, Roosevelt, Wilson, Kennedy, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama.
So, in honor of all these "Sons of Erin", I dedicate this card. I love to make humorous cards for this holiday (which is sort of a silly holiday, I think), and my friends expect this sort of thing from me.
Here is the inside of the card, and this is what makes sense of the whole thing. I hope it brings a smile to your face today.
