Billy - Repeat Impressions SOTW













Meet Billy - he's this week's Stamp of the Week at Repeat Impressions which means YOU can purchase him at 50% off! Visit The House That Stamps Built to see all the fabulous creations and find all the deets on the discount!

Seems like just about everybody created a "scene" with Billy. I had something totally different in mind, but it didn't work out - but I knew I wanted a "miss you" type card; so I decided to use the kite...reminds of when kids are little and they let something go and the wind takes it up...up...and away! Our youngest daughter 'accidentally' let our oldest daughters balloon go when they were very young - oh my, you would have thought the world was coming to an end - LOL!

Anywho, I stamped Billy on GKD's 120 lb. white paper and paper pieced his overalls and the kite. The rest was colored with Copics. I sponged in the sky and dirt.

I stamped the "Miss You Friend" directly onto the twill ribbon using Memento Rich Cocoa ink, added a button, some chocolate baker's twine and we're good...he's sad...but good!

:D

Thanks for looking; hope you have a GREAT week! Hugs, ~M.

Michelle - this is such a great card - you really get the feeling of missing someone with that kite flying away! Well done!

Cool card, Michele! I think we have a kite in our garage to fly. I guess we forgot about it again this spring:)
