Pieces of Quiet

I thought that this card was fitting for today's post as it's my children's first day back at school after the Christmas break! Ahhhhh....piece and quiet :) We had a wonderful holiday season despite almost my entire family being down with the flu and when we started to feel better...my son smashed his mouth into the handlebars on his bike and now has 4 very loose and crooked top teeth :( After all of that, you could say that I have had more excitement than I can handle over the last 2 weeks! lol

Ok, enough about me and back to this little cutie! When Michelle sent me this stamp I was thrilled because it reminds me so much of my own little man and this is something that Taiton would so do - he's such a little people pleaser :D These stamps are Penny Black called Pieces of Quiet and are available from Stampers Dream. I coloured him up with my tombow markers and a water brush and then popped him up on some dimensionals to be...well, dimensional ;)

I finally broke open my Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride paper pack after having it forever and put a ton of the patterns to use here :)  I personally think that greys and oranges look great on this little guy ;)

Thanks for coming by and I hope that you are all enjoying a few little pieces of quiet in your lives today :D
