My first thought was that I wanted to use this uber cute digi-stamp that I got from karensdoodles.com. When I started looking through my designed papers for a good background I decided I really liked some of the pages in a 4X6 pad that my little sister Cricut Crazy Lisa brought me last year. Problem was there were not 6 of the same design so I was going to have to use a few different ones. Not a problem since they are pretty well color coordinated anyway. And with that i decided to color each image a little different from the last image to keep the variety going.
So, here are my little boys when I was about half way through with the coloring. They are (obviously) colored in Copic markers.
Once I had finished the last three fellows I started pairing up my designed papers with each boy.
That was a good pairing of paper and kid when I went to bed last night, but somewhere between going to bed and putting the cards together today I got them mixed up and they didn't necesarrily end up paired up the same today. But they still paired up nicely as seen here:
I added a simple sentiment to the inside because the position of the design, and it being a 4X6 piece of paper, dictated that the designed paper be used on a horizontal card. That did not allow much room for a sentiment on the front. If I had a verticle Thank You sentiment that might have worked, but I don't, so to the inside it went:
Of course I had to add some kind of embellishment to the front - I mean, it just called for something. And since it is all about the little boy I certainly couldn't go with rhinestones or pearls, so a simple grosgrain ribbon with a small bow worked out just fine.
And these little fellows are so darn cute that I decided they deserve names. So here they are:
