A Basic Grey Challenge Card
Well if you haven't heard my oldest boy, Chase 18, has flown the coop for University. I miss him dearly. Last weekend I went out to St. Catherine's to visit him. I found me a really nice hotel right beside the University that gives substantial discounts to parents of Brock University students. Phew. This is now my new stomping ground for the next 4 years. Well, as much as missing him, I am extremely proud of him. He has made good decisions all his life, friends, schooling, girls and this is another notch in his belt. So when I went to visit, I had to drop off a card to him.
This is one of my all time favorite stamps and sentiments from Mo's Digital Pencil. I actually bought the stamp at Stamping Bella when I knew my little man was leaving, knowing this was the card for him. I colored it with my copics, in Chase's favorite colors, orange and blue. He always had an orange backpack. I added a little bit of orange and blue embroidery thread to spruce it up a bit. In the inside is the sentiment that comes with this stamp. Isn't it perfect?
I used my Basic Grey paper called Max and Whiskers. I love the colors of this paper. I used the striped one with it so Chase could see the little paw prints and remember his dog Scooter while he's gone.
I'm entering this one into the Basic Grey Challenge. They have a fabulous sketch by Tara G. Here it is:
I rotated it and I think missed one layer, but tried to get it as close to the sketch as possible. Hope Chase likes it. This is my boy!!
Hugs and Happy Thursday xx
