Hey, look at me! I'm posting a card!
The last week has been rather hectic, but hopefully things will slow down to allow some crafty time this week. I am rather excited to show you my project for this week's ColourQ challenge! I'm also entering this in the Card Sets Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. First, check out the cutie inspiration photo for this week:
Our dear friends in Ohio have a son who is celebrating his 6th birthday today. In addition to the book that we sent to him, I made a set of blank thank you cards that he can color and send. I feel very strongly about kids writing thank you notes as soon as they can scribble, and I think a set like this makes it more fun and personalized.
The idea for this project actually came from Carrie at Artistic Avenger and a cute project she shared last month. I didn't use her template, but I loved the idea of creating a little folder to hold blank cards and envelopes. I planned to share my template here today, but in the interest of time, and because this is already a photo-heavy post, I will come back and share it in a future post, so stay tuned!
I just adore the Half Pint Heroes set from Waltzingmouse with the darling vehicle images and sweet little boy faces that can be mixed and matched. I am really hoping they will eventually come out with a set geared toward little girls too!
The card folder is kraft cardstock covered with a Tangerine Tango panel debossed with PTI's Book Print impression plate. The white panel is stamped with the rocket image from Half Pint Heroes and colored with Copics (except for the little face, which is colored with Prisma pencils). I tied some Simply Chartreuse ribbon around the folder to hold it together.
The folder holds 6 cards, 2 of each of the designs below. Love that these simple illustrations are fun and easy for kids to color, as my son asks me repeatedly to stamp them so he can do just that!
Love the curly hair on this one!

I liked this project so much, I made a second set to post in my Etsy shop, so be sure look for that later today!
Sorry for such a long post, but I hope you enjoy this project and this week's colors! I can't wait to see your entries!
