I took this pic of my 6yo earlier and played around with it some while editing and I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!!!!!!!! I seriously love his eyelashes and love the fact that he's still my cuddly little guy. Dh thinks I baby him too much but I disagree. Then again, how can you not just baby this little guy?
Anyway, he just turned 6 last weekend and I'm working on his thank you cards. I used Friday's Limited Supplies challenge which was to make 3 cards using the same materials but different layouts. Here were the limitations:
Stamps ~ any, but must be the same for each card.
Cardstock and Ink ~ any, but must be the same for each card.
Techniques ~ any, but must be... ok, do you see the pattern here??
Embellishments ~ you must use hardware (since we were deprived last week, hehe!) and ribbon only, but must, yep, you guessed it, be the same for each card.
So, I started out with a Soft Sky cardbase and used Neenah Solar White, Regal Rose, and Pumpkin Pie for the other colors. The hardware is from the Stylized silver Hodgepodge Hardware kit and the ribbon is striped Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain. The patterned paper is from Sassafras Lass's Sunshine Lollipop Wee Bundle--I love this stuff because the colors rock!
I stamped Moon Doggy from The Cat's Pajamas in Memento Tuxedo Black on the white cardstock and colored with the following markers.This image is cut out with my rectangle nestabilities and matted on another rectangle and scalloped rectangle that was also cut out with nestabilities. The sentiment is from SU's All Holidays and is also stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on the card.
I think these are darling!!!! and I only have about 10 more thank you cards to make :-)
I'll be back--dh has some work to do tonight so I'll get some stamping done when I get the kidlets to bed.
Thanks for visiting!
