You float my boat. (GD Gig #4)

I have been asked to be a guest designer over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog for the next couple of months. I couldn't be more excited! I love the chance to work with others from all over the world. The inspiration is just amazing. :)

I hope you'll join me in the challenge going on right now. It is 'For a Child'. Here's my project.

I used There She Goes stamp set called 'Float my Boat'. Unfortunately, TSG is no longer selling stamps. :( Still makes me sad to think about it. I inked and stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored him up with my Prismacolor pencils. A very CAS card.

Thank you for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
