The Best Day Ever

Helloooooo there are you all.........did you all have a fabby weekend?

Today I'm here to show you my boys card. I have to say it took me ages to makes this.....I sat on the floor of my craft room with papers everywhere around me as I couldnt decided.... For those that dont know me that well its extremely rare I choose papers then colour....nope I sit c& colour & then they go in little plastic bags til they are used lol.

Now when it comes to boy images my 2 favourite companies are Mo Manning & LOTV, they do the best boy images.........ok they do a LOT of awesome images lol.
Now hubster had been moaning & moaning & even brought me morenew ones as I got rid of all of mine & told me I had to start using Copics again.........still a lot out of practice but I will get there.... I'm still using DI's as well though especially for maggies ;-)
Now I have to say I think some images just look better when coloured in Copics compared to DI's & this is definately one of them.........

I used one of my favourtie dies which is Little Darlings Fancy these & think they are fabulous for foofy cards but awesome for CAS or male kinda cards.

This little happy chappy is called 'Celebrating 1'....yes I know I put 3 but I think he could be used for any age up to......yeah 3 maybe lol. Also I had printed him out a long time ago & I couldnt even remember what he was called lol. He is coloured with copics & I'm sure I wrote the colours down.......2 secs will be back with the list....I hope!!! Yayyy check me out I wrote the colours down..
Skin - E04, 11, 21, 00, 000
Hair - E29, 25, 23, 21
Dungarees -  B99, 97, 95, 93, 91
Top & Shoes - E55, 53, 51
Balloon - YG17, 25, 03, 21
Ground - W5, 3, 1, 0
Background - B00, B000, BG01, C1
I cut out the speech bubble from some 6x6 paper....cant remember which one & used it like a balloon form his hand.

The number die I think is MB but not certain & have no idea about the balloon dies lol. The banner that the 3 is on & also used at the side come with the Little Darlings Fancy Rectangles set which is from Noor Design UK.
Buttons from my stash & the paper is an old Basic Grey pad I've had forever & as always I stiched around the edge.

I have to say I love the look copics give as its so much brighter & I will be using them more now although I will stick to DI's with my Magnolia & some others too as I still lurve distress inks, especially for my foofy cards lol. Although after I did this happy little guy I did colour a Tilda.........just because she was already stamped lol.

Ok I'm going now as my washer is playing its tune to let me know the cycle has ended.
I will be back tomorrow with my Noor Design creation.........yes its not a card ;-)

Tatty bye lovelies & thank you for stopping by.
Big squishy hugs

Oh WOW your colouring is stunning Vicky! I love the card and the balloons look fabulous! Love the colours you have chosen too. I haven't used my copics for a coupe of years now, they have probably dried up.
