Hello Mother. Hello Father.

Happy Monday morning! I don't know about you, but the weekend sure did seem to fly by. This is Hugh. Isn't he just so much fun with that "Yeah, whatever." look on his face? He is available at The Greeting Farm and is one of this month's releases. Funny little story to go with this image. I colored him up while on a little vacation over the Labor Day Holiday. Well this whitish fluffy thing landed next to the image in the white space as I was finishing him up. So I set my index finger down on the fuzz to pick it up...turns out is was a bug and it left a mess behind close to the image therefore damage control would have to be done. Thus I decided to cut Hugh out. Ever have anything funny like that happen to you?

For this card I used my copics to color Hugh, designer paper is from Cosmo Cricket, SU Riboon, PTI button and twine. I also used the DT call sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches.

Don't forget if you are interested in trying to get a sprout of your own design made into rubber then check out The Greeting Farm's Design My Sprout Competition. The deadline is September 24th. Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by.

Adorable card! Maybe you should have left the bug since this is a camp card (he he), can't tell you how many mosquito bites I have gotten while camping! It looks great no matter what though!

Oh, Mary! I love this fella! His hair is so wild, and just plain cute! You do a wonderful job coloring hair with your copics. This is a very creative idea for that stamp, and I sure have had things like that happen. The little moths like to swarm my work light at night! I drives me crazy!!
