Happy Times

Good morning everyone! Now that Mother's Day is done it's time to start on Father's Day. Easy with the nice selection of masculine images from Lili of the Valley. This one is a new release called Happy Times. Now, I know many of you might think that these are little boy stamps and not for grown men, but I will have to disagree. When you think about it, we give the men in our lives cartoon cards, or humorous cards so I feel perfectly comfortable giving them these. Besides, most men are little boys in men's bodies anyway, lol.

I colored this little guy with my colored pencils to coordinate with the papers from Cosmo Cricket. I scored myself a great deal on the Biography Little Boys collection from Michael's the other day. I happened to look down the clearance aisle and the bright red and CC's signature blue caught my eye. I found two of these 8 x 8 paper kits for .99 each! I love bargains! I know they're kinda old, but I prefer older Cosmo Cricket anyway, so I'm a happy camper. 

No glitter and bows for this card, but I did sneak in some twill ribbon tied in a simple knot. I just can't seem to make a card without ribbon!

I've got to start cranking out those Father's Day cards, it'll be here before I know it!
