Birthday Boy


I just bought this Mo Manning digital image and think he is so adorable.  I used the new Carta Bella “Boy oh Boy” by Carina Gardner, which is perfect for boys and teen males.  The wonky shaped die is My Favorite Things Blueprint 11.  The sentiment is part of a Paper Smooches “Happy Birthday” stamp, but I only inked it up half way.  I really like to use my supplies in ways they weren’t intended.  It makes me feel like I’m getting my monies worth!  I colored the image with Copics and inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Inks.

Entered in:

Now, you ready for my vacation inspiration?  I use to LOVE swinging as a kid.  If I were honest, I’d admit that I still love swinging, especially the way it feels when you lean your head back and close your eyes.  WOOHOO what a thrill.  So, when I saw this Ike’s Art image of KT on a Swing, I had to take my copics to her.  Die cut tree and leaves from My Favorite Things and sentiment from Tim Holtz.  I hope you will stop by and show us your vacation related entries and win some of these fantastic prizes!
