Sawyer's Birthday

Hello folks!  Yesterday was a banner day...I found some time to play in my craft room and actually got three cards done.  Of course, they all needed to be out the door like yesterday but I found the energy and mojo to get them done and that left me with a wonderful feeling.  I've missed the satisfaction that comes from creating.  And I reveled in the high that it brought all afternoon.

So first up is a card for our young neighbor, Sawyer, who turned 4.  We were celebrating with his family yesterday and as I'm known as the card girl, I just couldn't bring myself to buy him one - I had to hand make it.  I colored up Arthur from the Arthur and Annie Duo designed by Cristy Croll for Stamping Bella.  I love this little guy!  Well, I truthfully love the pair and have colored them together many times but I thought the boyish charm would be perfect for this occasion.

I stamped Arthur onto Bella's Bestest paper and colored with copics.  I then cut the image out and placed it onto the sentiment panel.  The sentiment was computer generated and printed onto Cosmo Cricket Honkey Tonk design paper and then cut with the Nestie Labels 18 die.  I kind of used the layout from this past week's Bellariffic Friday challenge.  After seeing all the he Babe's cards I was motivated to give it a shot and loved the result.  The addition of the MFT Western Star Border die-namic was perfect for the sketch.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!
