Blog Hop and Shop Release!

Welcome to release day at My Favorite Things! If you have visited here from Christina's Blog then you have already seen some pretty sweet eye candy and are hopping along great! If you are a regular visitor to my blog you might want to start at the very beginning with KIM!
I have the pleasure of showing you one of the Pure Innocence boys...called "Dog-Gone Cute"! This little guy makes me smile....I paired him up with Cosmo Cricket's Boyfriend collection and made my own little clothesline to hang my sentiment.
Here is a close shot of the boy and my coloring. I colored him with copics and added a little grass ground with my multiliner pen. Finished off his overalls with silver microbrads.
I couldn't resist doing two cards....this one I changed up his hair. The first card I did is how this boy comes (with 3 cute little strands of hair) but I love how this makes him versatile. I grabbed my 0.2 Multiliner and drew in a thicker head of hair for this card. I also have him sitting more on dirt in this card instead of grass. I also created the sky with a couple of shots of B32 and the airbrush.
I do think the little dog that comes with this set is pretty sweet too!
He is wearing denim overalls so they needed the texture of denim. Before I stitched down my background layer (of old jeans) I spritzed it with copic blender solution and transferred the pattern of the jeans to his overalls.
There you have it....or you need to have it! (wink)
There is blog candy hidden somewhere on the hop so make sure you leave a comment in your travels from blog to blog!
Now you can head on over to CINDY'S BLOG for something very sweet!
