Soft Pencil boys

A while ago I was in need to make some birthday cards for baby boys.  I really didn't have any images so I popped over to Soft Pencil and got some of their digital images.  I got their "Little Boy's Collection".  It's adorable and it's very versatile.  There are all different boys in this collection that I'm sure your to find the one you need. 
I knew these cards were for little one's so I knew that I did not have to make them too complicated or full of layers.  I took a piece of Certainly Celery cards stock and layered it with a piece of Kraft and some DP that I had in my scraps drawer.  I used my nesties to punch the image panel and the layer behind it.  I colored the image with watercolors and markers.  I was not sure how old the little one was going to be so I punched the scallop circle in the lower right corner with a 1 3/8" yellow circle then stamped the numbers 1,2 and 3 so the sender could add it to the card.

Adorable huh?  What about the next one?
I pretty much did the same thing with this card.  I colored the image with watercolors and markers.  I used my nestie to punch out the image panel and the layer under it.  I used the scallop circle punch so the sender could add the age.  I also cut some stars and glittered them to add to the card for a little fun "bling"...

What do you think??  Let me know!

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before or not, but I love the images over at Soft Pencil.  They remind me so much of the Hello Kitty images of my years (long) past...  But they are just adorable!!  And they will be having their 1st anniversary coming up soon - I can't wait to see what they have in mind.  Take a peek over at their blog, you'll love it!!

That's all I've got for you today.  Now I'm off to do some more "wife-ly" duties (meaning I've got some more cleaning to do) and then I'm getting to my craft table! 

See you tomorrow Ü
