Be Happy

I was on a bit of a roll yesterday after making backgrounds with the Distress Oxides, 
and of course cutting down cardstock means having smaller leftover pieces.
If they happen to be 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" (or bigger so they can be cut down) 
they are the perfect size for ATCs.


This little chap was a perfect fit, so I stamped him directly onto the card,
then stamped him again on leftover pieces of the background, 
thus creating his yellow scarf and green shoes.  I fussy cut around these
and glued them directly onto the first image. 
I coloured his body and the sign with Prismacolor pencils
and finished off with a hand-drawn border.

Another HOT day forecast again today, yesterday was around 38C where I live, 
so it will be interesting to see what today's temperature will be.
It's days like this, I'm grateful we have air-conditioning!

Happy Crafting!
