Hey Buddy

Good moooorning guys! :) Who's getting ready to get their little ones packed off to school soon? Luckily I have nothing like that to worry about. I struggle, most mornings, to get my own butt outta bed and ready for work.. I'd have no chance tryna get a little one ready too. Nuuuh, uh!!

So to celebrate (because I know everyone will be breathings a little sigh of relief once they've had peace and quiet restored) we've got a brand new challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers to incorporate this theme of..


I knew straight away who I needed to use, and it's this little guy from Pollycraft. Brains! I got him in the Big Bundle Paula released before announcing she was shutting her little store for good. Sad times.. but Pollycraft lives on in the card making world through Little Miss Muffet Stamps too!! 

I coloured this little cutie up using my ProMarkers! :) I used some papers from My Minds Eye (a pack which I am coming to the end of, yipppeee!!) I added a couple speech bubbles which I stamped and embossed with a sentiment and a star from Paper Smooches. 

You might have fallen off your seat when you first spotted this card, well I hope you've righted yourself. I know it's super simple for me, with hardly any froofroo. I don't know what came over me. I stitched the two little buttons, added a few brads and then.. once I started laying sequins and what have you onto the panel, it just wasn't working for me. So I left it. I kinda like how clean (for me) it looks, but I just feel sorry for all of the embellishments sitting in my drawers that are still screaming to be used on every. single. card.

Anywho. Be sure to head over to the Passion for ProMarkers blog to check out the girls awesome inspiration for this weeks challenge. Thanks for stopping by today. xo
