Boy, n. (PIO23)

This week, the adorable Doodle Garden is sponsoring our 

The Doodle Garden is offering our winner THREE single digital images! WOW!

Thank you so much, Doodle Garden!! 

I absolutely love this image as it reminds me of a certain boy who runs around my house. He isn't bringing jumping friends home yet but I know it's only a matter of time. :) I haven't decided exactly who our what this card is for yet. It could go in so many directions...birthday, Father's Day, Thank You. But one thing it does scream...SUMMER!!!

I colored my little guy up with my Prismacolor pencils and tried to make him look 'dirty' by using my brown pencil and smudging it around the exposed areas of skin. Was I successful? The one thing I didn't think about was making his clothes dirty. :) Oops. All the designer paper is from May's Simon Says Stamp card kit. The die cut star is Lil' Inkers and cut out of vellum. I didn't use my Embossing Buddy in hopes of getting another 'dirty' look around my sentiment and I think I was successful on that. :) 

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