A Note of Thanks ~

Hiya friends!  I'm here with a special little note of thanks from my iCopic post!  When my son was born, my grandpa set up a college fund for him.  I opened up a statement of said fund yesterday and realized that he'd been adding to it this year without saying anything.  I figured I'd better make him a special thank you note and quick!  lol

Picking through my stamps, I found the perfect little guy - Musical Ethan from Your Next Stamp.  He's darling and super easy to color.  I knew I didn't have much time, so I picked out my paper and layout (from some inspiration photos that I keep for just this purpose!).  The papers helped me to choose how I would color up his little outfit. 
The paper is My Minds Eye Lime Twist Out of the Blue.  It works out so well because my son tries to dress just like his daddy all the time, so it's camo and army green pants for him!  I used a ruler and paper piercer to add holes around the edge every quarter inch and a 0.8mm Copic multiliner to add faux stitching - that little extra touch adds so much!  The sentiment is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black (the absolute best ink for sentiments and beautiful black coverage) and embossed with clear embossing powder to really stand out against the busy background.  Now I just have to get it in the mail...
Ha Ha!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you all have a super fantastic beginning to your week!  :o) lyss
