Carter's Canvas and a Sketch

Yes- his cheeks are always that rosey in the evening, just like his Auntie!

Last night after bath the boys were coloring with markers, and I knew it probably wasn't the smartest thing to let them do but they were getting along so well. I couldn't interupt the bonding! I'm not sure if Carter ran out of room on his paper or what, but his artwork traveled up his arms. He now resembles his uncle that loves tattoos. I tried washing it off this morning, but it's not coming offeasily. I've already removed layers of skin, so I'm hoping that the rest will come off during tonight's bath.

On to the card. Artfully Ila is giving away blog candy, and we had to make a card using her sketch to be in the running for her giveaway. I loved this sketch. It was a lot of fun to work with. I oicked up a sheet of this construction worker type paper at my LSS (I can't remember who it's made by, as I cut it up before looking). I used my Fixafella from Stamping Bella for the main image. I colored him with WWC and an aqua painter. I'm not sure where the sentiment came from. It was one that I had gotten from a RAK a long time ago. I added 3 screw brads to the side and also a saw blad brad to the top left corner of the image. I really like the way this card turned out. Hopefully Ila will too!

Looking at your son..sure brings back memories...LOL. I don't know if this will help or not...but I use that lotion or baby oil (not sure why) would help to get things like that off.

Your card is Amazing!! I love that tool man, your coloring and that perfect sentiment!! The papers and accents you choose for this card are just Fantastic...love that tape measure paper...Wow! Totally Fabulous!!!
Thank you So Much for playing Erica!!

Super great card. At least your son only colored on his arms and not his face.

That is exactly why I only allow washable markers or crayons through the doors of my home :o) I know my kids well enough to know that if they have a split second to sneak in some body art...they will! He is too cute though...rosie cheeks and all!
Great card, I love the screw brads!
