Play Me Some Music

How cute is this little boy??? I think he is just so adorable and when I saw him I had to have him!! He is a Mo Manning image and his name is Dante's Drum. Mo has some of the cutest images!!
Here is my card I created with him. This was a fast card to make as I used some paper and accessories from a Colorbok punch out paper stack. I colored him with copics and had so much fun coloring him. I love the way he turned out!!
My best friend Gina went last weekend to a crop and on Sunday she took a copic certification class for the the time, just to get the copic manual. She teaches classes at our LSS.
While she was there she went to a scrapbook store and got me some white stamping CS to try, as she knows I am trying to find just the right kind for me. She brought me back some Neenah Solar Crest White CS.. And oh my gosh I think I have found it!! I just love this paper!! Until now my favorite was PTI but this is even better. And it holds up to alot of blending!! I just wanted to share this with you incase you too were looking for the perfect paper. For the way I color this is the best for me. I printed this cutie on the Neenah and colored him!! I think I am in heaven now!! It's not as thick as the PTI so it's a lot easier to cut images out.
Well I am off to bed, hope you have a get Sunday.

What a cute image and your coloring is just ridiculous...so amazing! And thanks for the heads up on the Neenah paper, especially nice to know it's a bit thinner than PTI and easier for cutting. :)

I haven't been to Mo's in a while. I think you've convinced me to stop by and see what I might need.
