Make a Wish

Welcome to another Softpencil Thursday! Today we were asked to use the image Michu is a Magician. When I saw the image I instantly thought it would be great for a boy's birthday. Seems I have tons of girly things - princesses, fairies, flowers. Wonder why huh?!?! I mean the girls kind of rule in my household, LOL!

While surfing the web for teacher gifts (on a side note, YOU do know Teacher Appreciation day is right around the corner, right?) I found this blog post and KNEW the gift card project would be PERFECT for this image.

I colored Michu with my colored pencils and OMS. The sentiment is from a hostess stamp set called Dilly Dally by TAC. The paper is from My Mind's Eye - bought a HUGE pad of it and NEVER used it...till today!

Ok I realize there is only a $2 bill in there but that's all the cash I had...I don't carry it and was SHOCKED that I couldn't even find a DOLLAR!! So if I was really giving this, obviously there would be a slightly larger bill in there :) What child doesn't love to receive a little cash on their birthday?

So whatcha think? Be sure to check out the other team member's blogs for their creations using Michu is a Magician. Their links are on my sidebar. AND to get the image for yourself just head on over to the SOFTPENCIL blog. Next week we're going to be having a BLOG HOP. PLUS it's Softpencil's anniversary so we're going to be partying! Want in on the fun? Just visit the PCP group for all the fabulous details!

Abby developed pink eye last night so she's home sick. I think she's got a little more going on...she definitely wasn't herself. She's started playing softball - ding dong me keeps forgetting the camera though. Good thing the season continues into June...I'm sure to get a few pictures between now and then. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Michelle said...

Hi Jolanda - the stamps I feature are from The Angel Company. I have an online website you can check out. The company currently doesn't ship overseas but I can work something out if you are interested. Just let me know. You can email me privately (link at the top of my sidebar).

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments - this card was a lot of fun to create!
