Hi!  Sorry I've been quiet this week.  It was a busy one and a spur of the moment trip to the drive-in movie theater cut into my crafty/blogging time (but was SO worth it).  It was my small man's first time and at 4-1/2 I was a little concerned about how he'd do.  The first movie started after his normal bed time, after all.  But not only did he make it through BOTH movies but he was charming company the entire time!  I'll share some photos at the end of the post, but for now, back to the card.  It was made for my son's dad.  Since they went to the carnival this Spring I selected Carnival Dad from KennyK to color up.  He is colored using Copics.  Papers are Basic Grey - Hey Boy.  I used a sketch from Digi Sketch Challenge and they had an optional For the Men theme.  The letters that spell "dad" are cut using the By The Letters alphabet Die-namics from My Favorite Things.  The sentiment is from one of those $1 Studio G sets and is cut with Classic Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).

And my little guy even wrote in the card himself this year!  So cute!  He also painted a rock for his dad that read "Daddy Rocks" (with a little help from Mommy).  Pinterest is a lifesaver for these kinds of things!

Thanks for stopping in.  I'll be back with another post today as well as a new Corrosive Challenge tomorrow!  I'll leave you with those drive in photos that will make you nostalgic for your own childhood!

Markers used: Copics (E00, E04, E11, E13, E17, E19, E21, E23, E25, E31, E33, E34, R20, R81, R85, YG11, YG91, YG93, Y23, Y28, Y32, N0, N2, N4, N6, BG10, BG72).

Oh, my, I loved reading about your evening with your son. I miss those days. My little guy informed me this week he's almost 30! Geez! How did that happen? lol I am so loving this fun, happy card! Love the monkey BG paper and all the attention to detail you've given the card. I love that extra attention to detail. I'm afraid sometimes I can be anal about it! lol Thanks for joining us at Fitztown Challenge Blog. Hope to see you again and good luck!
