From Courtney's Closet Special Playdate!



image is © Mo's Digital Pencil Too


Once a month Libby's From Courtney's Closet Inspiration Challenge invites a special playdate to be the inspiration for that week's outfit challenge. Looky who is the playdate for September??? yep...that's my little grandson Cole! Hasn't he grown? He is now 2 and just a chatting up a storm. He is pretty busy though and doesn't have much time to chat with Gwamma on the phone because he has to go play with all his trucks. If he is not playing with a ball...then he is playing with TRUCKS! ....and of course he loves his new TRUCK pajama's. When he speaks, Cole never says "trucks", he has to say "TRUCKS!" Ha! He is not a quiet child!

I tried to capture his little rosey cheeks and his two freckles, one on each cheek (I don't think those show tho)

I am pretty rusty at making boy cards, so this was a challenge for me to just come up with an idea. I tried paper piecing a fire truck (it looked like something Cole would have made--YIKES), I tried stickers and then finally decided on this digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil Too! I still have not taken the time to figure out how to resize the images, but luckily Cole's Uncle Matt helped me out again! I have several of her digi's I need to make into cards...Her drawings are amazing!

Look at my TRUCK Gwamma!

Make sure to visit Libby's Little Addiction and join in this week...I would love to see your
creations!


ETA:
Karen and Mary have tried to get me to join their Copics Creation Challenge...but still being new to copics...I was very hesitant...but I think I am getting there! Maybe I will give this challenge a go! Red's are hard for me, but they are my fave! They seem to just make a mess, but I was real careful with my copics on this one! LOL

ETA: I am proud to have this card featured HERE on Mo's Digital Pencil TOO! blog!

ADORABLE!!

"Kirby" (KrB) said...

Yay, Sue!! This is adorable! and so is your grandson. He looks a bit like my grandson who is younger but has the dark hair AND the same jammies. Your card is so cute, and I wondered if you did you fireman for 9/11, but you didn't call attention to it so perhaps not. Rather fitting, though. They were definitely among the heroes that day for sure. So glad you joined us and you picked an adorable "MO" image. Hugs,

Larissa said...
