Boy in tree

My niece has been posting pictures of my great nephew up in trees on facebook and so that gave me an idea of what stamp to use on his card.  I tried using some colored pencils a friend from church gave me when she moved away and I am not sure if they blend as well as my others do.

Katy Sue Designs -- Simpler Times stamp, colored with pencils
Papertrey ink -- Hodge Podge papers
Technique Tuesday -- Happy Birthday sentiment stamp set
Bazzill -- Brads

I went to a stamp show this past Saturday and bought a few more stamps and although I said I would buy no more paper, I indeed couldn't pass up buying Our Daily Bread papers, they are just beautiful and they were having a deal to get a free pad and who can pass that up.

Hope your week is off to a great start, and you are managing to keep cool if you are in the states dealing with all this heat.  Our heat index yesterday was up to 115 degrees, we went for our walk early yesterday but I still came back drenched it was so hot.  Today is yard work day so it should prove to be another warm day out working since it is only 7 am here and we are at 83 degrees already.

I am sharing my card with Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration link up if you have time stop by and check out the list of goodies to check out.

Thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy summer to stop in and say Hi,

Aw, really sweet. Th.e colours are pretty and seem fine!
Caran D'Ache crayons blend really well but I dont know if they are still manufactured..

Have a good work-out in your yard!

Very sweet card, Connie and it reminds me of my boys when they were young. My youngest fell out of a tree and broke his arm one day. That didn't stop him, I found him in the same tree, cast and all, a few days later! xo Karen

This will be just perfect for your great-nephew! It's such an adorable image. I can't resist new paper when it's right there in front of me.

Super cute card Connie. Love the darling image and the soft coloring. The fussy cutting looks great. Also like the style of the greeting. Oh, how nice when you can break in new images. :)
