Lazy Afternoon

Hello LOTV fans! Continuing on with our boy theme this month, I've chosen this sleepy cutie for my card today. 'Lazy Afternoon' was stamped on kraft cardstock and colored with an assortment of colored pencils. This effect is so dramatic and beautiful, I don't know why I don't think to do it more often. 

The adorable papers are from Kaisercraft's 'Tiny Woods' paper pad. Perfect for little boys! I'm sure that's exactly what this little guy was doing before he decided on a little snooze under a tree, running around the woods getting dirty, lol! 

Instead of fancy embellishments for this little boy card, I went with a simple ribbon folded over like a prize ribbon. A sentiment from 'Set 19' tops it off. I use these clear sentiments a LOT, I love them! There's something for every occasion and it's so easy to add a sentiment to any card. 

Hope it helps inspire you for those difficult masculine cards! Thanks for stopping by!
