Oxford Starting School

Oxford is one of the new digi stamps my mo manning and can be bought here.
He's just gorgeous isn't he?
I made him into a 4 year olds card and made a Blackboard to go behind him, coloured with promarkers, some Papermania background papers, a button, handmade mini pencils and a bit of love to bring it all together.



Attention to detail...

The attention to detail could have been my blackboard or even the button tied with the twill tape but I decided to feature my pencils as they are so darn cute. Made with cocktail sticks and coloured with Promarkers.

You never cease to amaze my Jak with your ingenuity. The cocktail stick pencils are a stroke of genious. Love the little boy too & such a great card for a 4 yr old.
I must say I am becoming much enamoured with digi stamps.

Those pencils are just the icing on the cake, as the whole card is brilliant. BTW, I'm totally going to use the pencil idea - but I'll tell 'em where it came from, never fear!
