Good Morning! In amongst all of the typical holiday business, we had back to back birthday parties this weekend. The second party was for a boy who attends the same school as my daughter and also has Type 1 diabetes. We have formed an instant support group with his parents while dealing with school issues. He adores trains, so I pulled out Engineer Cooper, which worked perfectly not only for the birthday card, but also the Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge to make a masculine card.
This is such a sweet image. I colored him up, trying to get him as true to the little boy’s coloring as possible, which was a bit of a challenge. The papers are Enchanted Evening and Blueberry Sky. It gave a great boy pallet. The Blueberry Sky is embossed with the Traffic Jam Cuttlebug folder. I added in some striped May Arts ribbon and some fabric brads. Since I usually forget about brads until after I’ve glued my papers down, I snip the “legs” off and just adhere them with a glue dot.
