Today is the 4th BD of my first and only grandchild.  I made a card, and it'll be neatly tucked into his packages as we head out to his BD party after church (and his nap) today.  He's the joy of our hearts, as we patiently await any other blessings that the Lord may give us in the form of grandchildren.  This boy is definitely a boy's boy, as he loves cars and motorcycles already (Hubb's genes).  He will inevitably hear a "hefty" engine, and call your attention to it when you think he's oblivious to the world around him.  He's also one of the first children I've ever seen happily make a mess, and be equally happy to clean it up when he's done!  He even takes off his shoes and lines them up on the rug near the door, and straightens my bedding if he feels I didn't do a good enough job! Can you tell I'm a bit proud?  Onto the card...

I was told anything dinosaur, so here's my contribution!  I stamped using a new set, colored with Copics and added it onto a card base which I used Versamark and a stencil to make tone-on-tone effect.  I hope he likes it!  Unfortunately I wanted to use too many elements and thus the "rhino" guy looks to be riding "dino's" back!  Does this count as a Miss Darnell's Oops?  Or did I miss that boat? Lol

   Paper - PTI Ripe Avocado, Neenah 80#
   Stamp - Paper Smooches Cute-asaurus
   Ink - Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black
   Stencil - PTI Modern Backgrounds (3)
   Clear EP, Copics

Thanks for stopping by again,  and getting an ear full of gab, but I truly hope your weekend is wonderful!
