Oliver Texting

Hello lovely peeps

Just popping in to show you the card I made for my young cousin's birthday. I've used Oliver Texting which was released as a rubber stamp last week at Lili of the Valley (I've had the digi version of him for a while).
I printed him onto Simply The Best card from Limetree Craft and coloured him in with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils
Burnt Ochre, Brown Ochre, Van Dyck Brown, Olive Green, Light Grey, Medium Grey, Black

For the base card I covered an A5 landscape card blank in papers from the Trimcraft/First Edition 8x8 pad 'New Leaf' and added some trees made from circles and upside down hearts.

Other ingredients:
Sizzix Bigz XL Alphabet Die - Typo Lower
black and white card
Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet die

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Pixie's Snippets Playground weeks 317 and 318
Outlawz Monday Greetings Masculine
Simon Says Stamp (Wed) Layer it up
Creative Craft Cottage Digi Creations #88 Anything Goes

As You Like It Challenge Favourite die and why - Olivia alphabet by Cuttlebug is my favourite font ever, I stalked ebay for years before getting my hands on a set. They cut really well too. 

  Thanks for stopping by,

Great card Katrina - perfect for those oh so hard to make male cards! Love the soft greens.

I know a few people who rate the Olivia font die as their favourite - sadly I missed that boat but do have a lovely blogging friend who sends me a stock cut from white card now and then so I can colour them to suit! I ought to start stalking eBay again :)

He's fab Katrina, the alphabet dies are great too. I don't have much patience for die cut alphabets although I do have a few!!! I really should make more of an effort with them! :0)
