Dapper DRS Dude

How's that for some alliteration? I couldn't really think of a clever title, so I went with this one! The image is part of the Cutie Pie Kids collection from DRS Designs, and I really love the whole line! They are completely adorable and super fun to color. I actually sat down the other night with 7 of the images and colored away. Now, I'll have to make them all into cards! Also, I had to bust out my Basic Grey Ambrosia paper that Dawn gave me for my birthday. It is gorgeous, and I paired it with Real Red and Basic Black by Stampin' Up.

I have a sweet little Meredith story for you. She is my four year old, and she loves to make cards for every occasion. Here is the conversation:

Meredith: Mom, are we going to the festival tonight?
Me: Yes, honey at the church. (our Italian festival)
Meredith: Who's the in charge guy at the church?
Me: You mean Father John?
Meredith: Yes and God. I'm going to make a card for them.
Me: That's nice honey.
Meredith: Is God a boy or a girl? Where is he?
Me: (thinking...it's 9 in the morning and I have to answer these questions). That's a tough one, but most people think God is a boy. And, God is everywhere.
Meredith: Ok, (as she looks around for him) can I make a card for him then.

How sweet is that? Never a dull moment!!
