Meerkat Simples!

I was really pleased this morning to receive my wonderful goodies from Sandra and even more pleased when she also offered me 4 of her downloads too! You can find them here. I've had my eye on this one and used it immediately to make a card for my youngest son who has a birthday at the weekend and loves a certain TV advert. I tried to keep the card "Simples" lol!
The image has been coloured with Copic markers and mounted onto some frames cut out on the Cricut using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. The paper and sentiment are from Cosmo Cricket. I've used a Sizzlit border die to cut the belt and buckle. The buttons and string are from my stash.
I was thinking of popping a Santa hat on this cute little character in the future to make some Christmas cards.
I hope this makes you smile!

What a cute image Jennifer! You've colored this so beautifully. Your son will love it. When I first saw it in my blogger window, I thought it was a Xmas card with that adorable belt and buckle. Throw a santa hat on him and it would be a terrific Xmas card. I'm going to have to go in search of that die...this is giving me all sorts of ideas:)))

Sandra said...

Wow!! Jen what a great card and a fabulous idea to pop a Santa hat on him...that would be hillarious! We must have such similar tastes. I could almost replicate your card completely. I have that Cosmo Cricket set, the Cricket and Plantain cart, the very same sizzlet border die, the copic markers and of course the image!
Your son is going to love it!
