Tiddly Inks - Boys!

Greetings lovely readers!  So happy that you are here with me on this wonderful Tiddly Tuesday!  Today we're letting boys be boys!!  Our challenge this week is to create something with the boy(s) in your life in mind!   

I've used one of the newish Tiddly Images "Hi There".  I colored him with my Copics and added a sparkly "t" on his shirt for my son's first initial.  I then trimmed him out carefully and nestled him all snug on top of a Tiddly stack of books. 

I used lots of Kraft cardstock along with some chipboard and 3-D sparkly stickers to embellish.  I used an MFT sentiment "I Simply Adore You" stamped in black Momento ink.

I stitched my background and then took my sanding block and distressed the entire background.  This was tucked into my son's lunchbox one day last week.  I just LOVE adding extra bits of love to my kid's lunchboxes letting them know that I'm thinking about them while they are at school.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!  Please play along with us right here!
