TLC Design Team Blog Hop!

Hello all my crafty friends!!!   Happy Friday!  And what an awesome way to start our weekend!!!!  TLC is having a Design Team Blog Hop today to help welcome the new DT, which I am thrilled and honored to be a part of.  I am super excited to be your final destination for today's hop. :)

Hopefully you've come here from my fabulously talented teamie, Hetty.  If you haven't, you should go back to the beginning or starting point which is Karen, another uber talented teamie o'mine ;)   You definitely want to start at the beginning, because each DT member has a little surprise in store for you!  I've put the blog hop list here for your convenience just in case you get lost along the way!









For today, I created a sort of Clean and Simple masculine card using the very freebie that I will be giving you at the end of the post!  The name of the image is called Too Many Numbers, and once I saw him I fell in love with his cherubic face and angel eyes.  Thank God I'm not his mother, I'd never be able to tell that face no ;)


I just love that look, don't you?!?  And I love the vintage feel and the versatility of this image.  He could be used with so many of Paulette's word art sets and sentiments (trust me, it was hard choosing just one!). I decided for today's creation to use TLC's, Thinking of You, since he looked so lost in thought!


So for stopping by and joining us in all the blog hop fun, I've attached your little gift from Paulette - all you have to do is click on it and right click to save yours!

This concludes our hop today!!  Hopefully you've enjoyed all the mahoosive amounts of creativity from my fellow teamies and all those fabby freebies from Paulette! Isn't she the most generous?!  Don't forget to spread some TLC today :)

  29. Sara, you have done an incredible job with this adorable image! Your coloring of him and his friends is phenominal...you have managed to give them that wonderful vintage look. Great CAS layout also. But I don't know about him sitting there "Thinking of you"...I think it's more thinking of what alibi he can give for the mischief he's gotten into lol. Either way you're right...it would be very hard to say no to that adorable face. Thanks for sharing your marvelous talents. And thank you so much Paulette for this totally adorable image!
