king of the WILD THINGS

Anyone with a little boy this age looking at this post is probably thinking, that's my boy, lol! Luckily for me, I'm not one of them ;-)

This is king of the wild things from Stamping Bella, and I must say it is one of my favourites. I must sound like a broken record, I think I say that about all the images from Stamping Bella, but come to think of it, why would I have bought it if that wasn't the case.

I coloured him with my prismacolor pencils blended with sansador and cut him out with my craft knife, then layered on a nestie mat and framed with a nestie. I added some antique accents, and highlights with my sakura glaze pen. The corners were done with a stampin' up corner punch and the white background behind him with a cuttlebug template.

Have you all been having a good weekend, I know I have. I've not left the house, and yesterday we had such a beautiful day, then last night some rain, and today lovely sunshine again. Just how it should be! If only the weather man would read this post lol.

Friday we have a colour challenge for Bellarific Friday, you can get all the details on the bella blog, and believe it or NOT, but my card is already done, woohoo. It was pure luck, I just happened to make a card with those colours before I knew what they were.

I got to get going, it's impossible to type with Jingle on the keyboard every two seconds. I also got to go make some dinner before American Idol starts, hate cooking :-(

Have a great week.

I avoided the son, but I got two gorgeous nephews instead and this is based on one of them...He is indeed the king of wild things, but I love him dearly. He is this cute too. :)

Oh,I LOVE this Meahni!! You think of the neatest things to do with those Nesties. He's just adorable and that embossed background reminds me of scales or something. It's perfect for this image. Girl, you ARE GOOD!!!
