The birthday boy

Hope everyone had a good weekend.  Mine was pretty full.  Working on my Christmas card orders and then on Sunday I was at Paper Pickle's Christmas open house.  Met up with Linda as well as some old friends I haven't seen in a while Tracy and Brenda.  So nice to see you gals!  They had make n' takes as well as hot apple cider and lots of Christmas squares and cookies.  Yes, the sweet tooth that I have I had to indulge in just a few - I mean really who could resist!

With all the Christmas cards I have been doing, thought I would take a break and color up something different.  Now I don't normally color up 'kid' cards only because I don't have anyone that young to give the too, but I had this guy stamped off for a while, and he needed some lovin!

The birthday boy was stamped with black memento on bella's bestest paper.
I colored his skin tones with copics and the rest with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

I used the  colors from the School Spirit collection by Crate as my guide.  The bright green rick rack was purchased from our local fabric store.  Finishing touches were glitter on the presents and some bright colored buttons.

Thanks for stopping by. Till next time...

Well isn't he a little cutie! I love the way your colors tie to your paper. Paulabella taught me how to color this guy and I am forever beholden to the original color scheme. I must venture into some new territory and I think you have given me the boost! Adorable card.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful creations at the open house. Definitely gives me inspiration to do some of my own creating. Your DP and colouring on this card is fabulous.
