Having One Of Those Days?

Not only is stamping a relaxing and creative outlet, but it can also be extremely educational.
I had a pretty good idea what Dunny meant, but just to be sure I was using the word properly, I did a little research.   Never in my life did I think I would find so many words for an outhouse.  Here are just a few of my favorites:
Thunderbox
The Long-Drop
&
Biffy

 Welcome back to challenge #10 at
Where our challenge this time is
AUSTRALIAN or PARTY THEME!
With the amazing Zoe from Make It Crafty who is sponsoring us this time and offering the winner...
AU$15 voucher to spend in the online store. 
I had the best time coloring this amazing digi from Make It Crafty...
I hope you like what I've done with it!

Background is colored with Stampin' Up! inks and a dauber and then lightly spritzed with water, roughed up the texture with a paper towel and then lightly covered with Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  
The Dunny and tree and gravel road are all colored in copics.
I've added the "full" sign myself and typed up the sentiment on the PC.

We'd really love to see what you come up with for the 
Australian or Party Theme
happening for 2 weeks at
The Squirrel & The Fox!

Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful crafty day!
hugs,
Lisa xx

Oh!! I just love your 'dunny'..lol...we have such gross words...but I do love your colouring and sentiment..lol..years ago when we were kids and doing a lot of travelling round the country, we had to stop in some funny places for the 'loo'..and one of those places was a place way up North...a real hick place'Kaitia'and their public loo was right on the road edge...a long drop....quite nasty...

I feel a little odd saying this, but... your outhouse card is beautiful! The background is gorgeous and I love the 'full' sign!
I love your research too! I think I'm going to start calling the bathroom the 'biffy' just to mess with people! They just might think I'm mad! ;)
