i{heart}2stamp December 2011 Sketch

Hello and happy holidays! In the midst of all this festive craziness I received an order for a special card. The request was for a "Happy You're Here" card to celebrate the anniversary of a sibling's adoption. I thought it was the coolest thing! I was told he liked vintage VW Bugs so I searched for some clip art, a fun sketch - i{heart}2stamp's December 2011 layout - and added those awesome miniature tires I got from Michaels for a buck as part of a model car kit. The punch buggy is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers. A white gel pen adds some highlights on the hood. I also added some clear glaze to the window and used my Sakura CLear Star Gelly Roll glitter pen on the rims and bumper. Papers are from the Dots, Spots, and Stripes stack by DCWV. I did rotate the sketch to accommodate my image and added the computer generated sentiment.

With Christmas now only 10 days away I have SO much to do! I still have not mailed my holiday cards and not a single present is wrapped! However, I've been having a wonderful time at night cuddling and watching Christmas specials with my small man so I figure a little stress is a small price to pay.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your holiday preparations are shaping up nicely!

Awesome! You have to tell me where you got the clip art. My husband and I always play the punch bug game when we see a VW bug and this would make a perfect card. You did a great job! It looks so real and the tire accents are super!
