Chubby Tool Time

Happy Monday,  hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and my friends that celebrated Thanksgiving had a wonderful holiday. Oh it's Cyber Monday and I was able to get a few things this morning so I can now say that I have officially begun my Christmas shopping.. I am usually done by now, but finding it is harder and harder to buy for my boys as I feel like I buy the same thing every year.

Look at this little cutie, he is called Chubby Handyman and you can pick him up at the Stamp Fairy store here. Plus as a bonus StampFairy has an awesome sale going on through the end of December, all images are 50% off.

I used some older DP from a DCWV kids pack and layered with PTI Pure Poppy card stock - He is all colored with Copic E33.35,31,Y21,R21, then for the hinges (locks) I colored with  a Clear Sakura Gelly Roll pen,  I stitched around the middle papers to add some detail to the paper, my brads are actually eyelets that I found in my stash along with the hardware I used on the ribbon to make it look like a belt. the yummy Ribbon is Pure Poppy from PTI and the sentiment is a Printwork stamp. I used this week's sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping challenge ( I did stamp with the sentiment), also Paper Pretties' challenge is asking for a clean and simple layout so I will be entering my card into both of these challenges. Party Time Tuesday's challenge is 2 DP and 3 embellishments (Birthday, 1 image, 2 DP, brads, ribbon & hard ware)
I think it makes a cute birthday card for a young boy and having 6 grandsons I am always being asked for birthday cards.

Have a lovely day and thanks for visiting, I will be back later to share one more card with you today.
