Life is messy...

It is so funny to me how creativity works and what things inspire me. It is always different. I guess it depends on mood and things like that. I was wanting to make a friend a card to tell her how I appreciate her being my sounding board and always talking me through tough situations. I had an idea in my head of what stamp I was going to use and colors and everything... then I was browsing blogs and saw this little guy on the Mo's site! It is PERFECT! So my ideas starting forming and went in the total opposite direction..lol I love when that happens, sometimes. I have to tell you that this little guy was probably the most fun to color out of any stamp I've ever had. I had a BLAST adding all the messy busketti splatter. Another cool thing about this card is that it is made with all scraps, except the card base! Woot! I am trying to force myself to make my way through all the scraps I have... it is ridiculousness the amount I hoard, really. I am sure some of you, if not most of you, can relate to that. lol

   Anyway, here is the card:
Doesn't he just make you want to pinch those chubby little cheeks!
