Meet Charlie... He's come for a visit... maybe to stay...

Here is a brand new image available at McMahon Five Designs. His name is Charlie. I think he's a real cutie-pie! I colored him with my Prisma Pencils and then layered him onto striped Basic Grey card stock and then stamped the sentiment onto some Real Wood Paper. I must say that making a "Boy/Masculine" card is a big change for me. I'm so used to adding ribbons, lace, flowers and my all-time favorite Stickles glitter. But somehow that didn't seem appropriate for this cool dude. Having 3 sons in the house, you'd think I'd be a pro at boy cards. I'm gonna try and work on more "boy" stuff this year I think... in addition to my many other aspirations. :)
