Mathias is going to be five this coming Sunday, which got me to thinking about birthday cards for little boys. Meet Harold, a digital image from DigiStamp Boutique. There is something about him I think is so darned cute.
The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits. Someone left a question recently about the use of mineral spirits. The blending technique is explained here and on numerous other websites and blogs, all of which will do a much better job of describing it than I could.

I hope you had a great day! Mine was a good one, albeit I’m still tired from the weekend. Easter at my sister and brother-in-law’s house was so much fun. My mom, five of my six siblings, their spouses, seven of the 12 grandchildren, three more spouses/significant others, the three great-grandchildren, and Husband and I were there. The food (enough to feed a small army) was wonderful. There was also enough laughter to keep me smiling until the next time we get together. For now, I gotta run. Husband wants to go out for dinner. In no mood to cook, I’m all about eating out. Have a great evening, and thanks for stopping by! Later …
