I was wanting to colour with my Copics, and there is nothing better than to tackle a stamp from The Greeting Farm when you are in that kind of mood!  This is Cafe Ian.
Paper: cardstock (PTI); patterned paper (unknown); Neenah
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic markers; Color Box white
Stamps: The Greeting Farm; Hero Arts
Other: Dimensional squares; Glossy accents

After cutting up all my 12 X 12 sheets of very old patterned papers I am on a mission to try and use them, so you will have to forgive me but some are so old, more than 5 years, that I have no idea of the manufacturer!  I really like this paper for a boy card.  My friend Lisa actually gave me a stamped copy of this little guy so that I could colour him in (thanks Lisa!).  The sentiment is made using a Hero Arts alphabet stamp.

Thank you for letting me share with you!  Have an incredible day!

I am gradually catching up with my blogging friends. Hope you are well and enjoy your holiday. Love your male card and like you I really need to use up some papers before I buy any more!!
