Got Teeth?

Welcome to another The Cat’s Pajamas Challenge for the month of January!  It’s a great sketch brought to you by Wendy M, and it’s a fun one.  I was thinking about how my little-buddy-nephew is turning 4 in just a week and how much he loves to play “hockey” downstairs with my boys.  He’s such a character with a tooth already missing from a little mishap because of his very busy, rambunctious this idea for a Birthday card was perfect.  

I pulled out The Puck Stops Here to play with (I love my TCP bunnies!) and stamped it on Neenah White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured him up with Copics (see below for markers) and then trimmed him out with a little border.  One cute about my little nephew, if you ask him what his favourite NHL team is he’ll say “The Canadiens!” just like his Dad (my brother).  So, I picked the jersey colours for Montreal and added a little stripe with my Copic Multi-liner, along the bottom and sleeves to get the white stripe in like their uniforms.  

To keep it simple, I added coloured sequins, washi tape and cardstock as accents.  

Here’s my silly little guy front and center making a funny face.  He’s such a goofball, always keeps us laughing and he especially adores his big cousins, (well they adore him too).  He’s such a lovey kid, and I love that as well, because it means hugs and kisses from him.  He’s pretty special.    

Here’s the Copics I used.  

Here’s the gang showing off their fabulous take on this sketch.  We invite you to play along too!  You have two weeks to play and it could mean that you win Cat’s Cash to spend in the TCP store, or, even better, you are chosen as the Swanky Stamper of the Month and you get to play along with all the goodies in a future release!
