Scribbles!

The rain today gave me the perfect excuse to sit and start on a small order of cards -as if I needed an excuse after having being deprived for so long.....

Monty is the great grandson of one of the ladies at the Club -and having bought this Mo Manning image a while ago - simply because I liked it!- I thought I would use it. As I am not 'child friendly' at all, I hope it isn't 'too old' for a 3 year old!

I imported the image into a graphics program and then added what I hope are kiddie type letters for the greeting.

Printed out and coloured with Promarkers - and I confess I really enjoyed colouring this little man - his facial expression is priceless!
I mounted him onto some blue cardstock.
The backing papers are from the Nitwits 'By the Sea' and 'Land Ho' collections and the two small tabs secured with brads on the left were added as I thought it looked a bit 'plain'!
I don't possess a Cricut or similar machine, nor do I have any alphabet/number dies so the number was hand cut - (Not perfect but passable!)
The two 'crayons' are from the button stash and the inside is decorated with the same papers.

  21. What a perfect card for a 3yr old. I love that image it is sooooo cute and I love your colouring. My granddaughter is 3 yrs old in a couple of weeks time and I have bought a LOTV stamp to use. She loves pink and fairies but dainty she certainly is not so I just had to buy the stamp for her card. Hugs Mrs a.
