Billy & Sparky

Billy & Sparky at Window_Dec 2009

I couldn’t resist this sweet image from Eat Cake Graphics. Although they have a girl image that is equally cute, I deemed the little guy more fitting for my (so far) male dominated household.

My card is simple (of course) – the image colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS, faux Flower Soft snow, red Stickles on the tree, and the blue cardstock scored and sanded to emulate siding. The card base is textured White Daisy cardstock.

The little boy’s thoughtful expression is perfect for a “Thinking of You,” “Wish You Were Here,” or “I Miss You” type sentiment. On the cuteness meter, I rate this image a strong 9.5. LOL.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy Textured, Indian Corn Blue, and Cranberry cardstock; Black and Cranberry ink pads; Eat Cake Graphics Billy and Sparky in Window stamp and CTMH Say it in Style stamp set; Xmas Red Stickles; Styrofoam; White glue; Prismacolor colored pencils; Gamsol odorless mineral spirits; Blending stumps; Empressor tool and mat; Sanding block.

Happy Friday! I’m sure many of you have the same plans for the weekend that I have – holiday preparations. Tonight, however, I’m going to kick back and take it easy.

I hope yours is a wonderful weekend! Later…
