Bronte and Louis share a cookie

Mo Manning's images share so many facets of childhood and friendship. I loved the simplicity of this image and of course fell for the little doggie who wanted a taste of the cookie too. Our house is a lot like that. Bella loves to put her head right on the table and quickly sneak her tongue out as if you wouldn't notice. Right!!!

Any hoo, I have yet to color this freebie up until now. What was the motivation...well this week's Mo DT Challenge blog theme was based on a photo found here. The soft peach and grays made me think of a little boy so I went in hunt of the perfect image. Found it and then set about coloring it up. I knew that I wanted to delve into my Basic Gray 6x6 Ambrosia pack. That too had yet to be gotten into and it's been in my stash since April. I was saving it for the right project...don't tell the DH.

As usual I colored this with copics on Neenah classic crest solar white cardstock. The shading was done with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

The lone adornment was a button and simple sentiment I generated on my computer.

Hope cookies are safe in your house...

Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for stopping by.

Cute card, Cath. The shading looks great and I love his hair. It just makes you smile. Speaking of cookies, I need to bake some before our visitor arrives.
