Birthday Boy

Happy Tuesday!  By LORi Designs has some super adorable new Bug & Roo digi images available this month and I have a little peek at Birthday Dayton.  Isn't he the best?  I love his little jersey shirt and stripedy sleeves.  Yes, I said stripedy.  It's the caffeine talking.  I printed him out in a wallet size and then colored him with Copic Markers.  The papers are Indie Chic Citron 6x6 from My Mind's Eye (loving these papers!) and I wrapped some Cappuccino Twine around the card and finished it with a corduroy button.  The sentiment is from Little Talks 2 digi sentiments and the layout is Retro Sketches RS#10.

Have a wonderful day - thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Oh Karen how lovely is this fabulous work what a lovely card great image and colour Hugs Elaine

  2. Awww he's a cute little guy! Love the whole card and all the stitching. I wish I had a place for my sewing machine in my craft room instead of buried in a closet. I would love to do some stitching on my cards too. It seems to add so much intrest to a card.

  3. this is adorable! Love your clean style!!
