Little boys, by nature, can be mischievous, right? When they are together, and quiet, there is something up. Or when they are together, and giggling uncontrolabl, something is up. The latter is what I walked into last night, they were sledding off their beds. It involved the top of their toy bin, lots of cushions and some muscle to push each other off the bed and slide to the floor.
Last year, Amy T. posted about a sweet little boy that was in need of some cards before his big surgery. I sent one to him and it felt good. I needed some "feeling good" today so I made a card to send this year as well, as Sebastian is heading for another surgery shortly. You can find out all about Sebastian and his journey on Amy's blog. I chose to use a raccoon image because I think they are mischievous and wild just like my boys are, and I think Sebastian is too!
The colors came from the current Lawnscaping Challenge. Always fun to play along with them and have a reason to ink up some Lawn Fawn Stamps. I thought I was being clever by choosing the red tree patterned paper from Lawn Fawn's Fa-la-la Collection and using it on a non-holiday card. The blue patterned paper, shaded with distress inks, is from the Bright Side Collection. The stitched photo frame and clouds are products from Lil' Inkers.
The sketch is from Retro Sketches. I did a mirror image of my sketch because that was the direction the raccoon was facing.
