X Y and Z!

This week’s SBS18 Challenge, hosted by Kerry,  is to use up those poor little left out letters that so often go unused.  Well for once these underdogs get their day.  They are first in  this week’s schoolyard pick! I love this little schoolboy from Paper Pretties!  He is just so sweet, with a bounce in his step and not a care in the world, and a little ragged around the edges like most little boys are!  I can always find a bit of dirt on my boys any time of the day it seems.  Personally, I think that’s just the way it should be! 🙂 I used my Letraset Aqua markers and an aquabrush to paint my little sweetheart.  Can you see the scuff on his knee?  That’s my boy!  He is on his way to pre-school, just like my little boy will be, this fall.   I’m just the teensiest bit sad about it too.  I’m allowed, right?  He’s my baby! I’m so glad you stopped by!  If you’re up for the challenge stop on …

Father’s Day, A lazy hazy Day of Summer!

Goodmorning! How was everyone’s weekend? We had such a fun Father’s day! We weren’t at the beach, but we were playing in water with the kids in our own backyard! Think baby pools and sprinklers and you’ll get the idea! I made this at the end of our day and left it on my husband’s pillow for him to find. I just thought the image captured a bit of the lazy summer day that we all enjoyed! I did find the coloring of this image a bit tricky, but I’m pleased with the end result. I used my Letraset aqua markers and aqua brush pen to paint it. I cut it out for a dimensional effect, but kept the card simple, because the image is enough to stand on it’s own I think. Aren’t these turtles by Cornish Heritage Farms cute? Tom Allen has designed a whole line of Friendly Kritters! They’re all adorable! click for larger image Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms Beach Turtles , Verve Visual Happy Thoughts Paper: Basic Grey Two Scoops, Bashful …
