A Sweet Sunday Sketch for a Special Boy


Well, this is my second attempt at Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch. If you would like to see my first attempt.....just scroll down. It's there in all it's glory....can you feel the sarcasm? I picked up some new Cosmo Cricket paper yesterday, so of course I had to use it! And I had yet to ink up my Cheep Talk stamp set, I think the two compliment each other nicely!

The Goods:
Paper: Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Cosmo Cricket "Early Bird": Farmers Market & Apron Strings
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery
Extras: Kiwi Kiss Satin ribbon, Slice Machine

So I just picked up some of this paper yesterday as well, Lil' Man by Cosmo Cricket. Had to get it, well, because I have 3 boys, and there is always a need for boyish paper. But the irony of the situation is that I have the HARDEST time, and I mean, the worst time trying to do boy cards. I mean why do boy card when flowers and butterflies and ribbon are so much fun!

Well, I gave it a whirl- and here is the result! The pattern with the balls is called "Silly Sam", which is what I call my Sam. So I had to have it. I think I'll most likely use the rest for scrapbooking....but we'll see!

SO cute! I love that paper and of course one of my favorite sets, cheep talk. Love this card - well done! I'm with you on boy cards - why can't they just like bling and ribbon and glitter?
