Twinkling Tuesday: He's a Natural...

Hello there!
It's another Twinkling Tuesday in blogland and I am SUPER excited to tell you this week that we have a VERY special guest sketch artist, a.k.a. "Temporary Twinkie" this week....my very own son, Jack! Check out his AMAZING sketch that he has for you this week:

Isn't it awesome!? Yep, in case you're wondering, this was drawn by my adorable six year old son and YES! This sketch calls specifically for paper piercing!!! lol. Can you imagine that there is ANYTHING greater to a six year old boy sitting down and stamping with mom, staring at that SUPER cool and SHARP tool...the paper piercer. "What is that Mom?" "It's a paper piercer". "What do you use it for?" "To poke little holes in paper"....'Why would you want to do that, Mom"...."because you can sew, pretend to sew, or just poke pretty patterns in your paper, honey". This is all ok for a while...until the next time, and the time after that....and then eventually, he is asking me "Mom! Where is that tool you use to put the little holes in the paper"?

Oh dear, and we are hooked on a cool new toy. LOL! So little by little, the asking starts to get more frequent...."Hey, Mom, can I watch you use that paper needle"...."Hey Mom, can you use the thing that makes the holes in the paper?"...lol get the point? "Mom, can I use that?" Ok, this is where we draw the line. Not quite age apppropriate, unfortunately.
Needless to say, it was with MUCH enthusiasm that I said yes when my little dude asked me to draw his own sketch for Twinkling Tuesday. I was thrilled! Paper piercing and all, this is a FABULOUS creation and I hope I did it justice!

I used the "Natural Boy" stamp from Lelo Design, made by Stampavie. I let Jack pick out the image that he wanted me to use since this was his big debut in the sketch world :) I had a GREAT time coloring this image and can't wait for Jack to draw some more sketches...as he is a "NATURAL" for sure! How fun!

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to see what the other TT has cooked up for ya today. Kim is our very special featured stamper this week on the Twinkling Tuesday blog...so be sure to check her out! Want to check out the rest of the Twinkle Team? Awesome! You'll be so glad you did!

Last but not least? I'd LOVE for you to play along! Please leave a comment on the Twinkling Tuesday blog linking your card so that all of the team can see...or if you choose to upload to SCS or PCP, use keyword MTTSC13. See you in sketchville! Hugs!

I agree...I love the added butterflies! I have this punch and have yet to use it. LOL. Very sweet card- love how you colored him!

Very cute stamp. I have to get more boy images and I really like this one. Jack is a clever dude. Unfortunately, I goofed! All of the colour challenge emailing got stuck in my brain and I did the challenges in the wrong order. Grrr! So I will do jack's sketch next week!
