Easter Set using Character Cafe digi

No one ever said Easter is all about bunnies.
I wanted to put together a little something for the kids, and the girls are easy...but what about boys? So I thought this little guy was perfect!
Isn't he just adorable? He is colored with Bics and Copis, I used M's Just Chillin DP and MME Magnolia for the solids, The Character Cafe digistamp, and embellishments.
Over at The Character Cafe Blog this week, Deanne has set the challenge:

SKETCH/LAYOUT
I love layouts since they are a really great jumping off point when I make cards. Anyway, a 2 year old little boy isn't going to be overly impressed just getting a card...so I made a coordinating t-shirt to go along with his Easter gift.

Here's what I did: I opened my image in Paint, filled in the areas using the paint bucket in coordinating colors, saved. I then opened Word, opened and sized my image. I set my printer settings to "iron on transfer" which automatically flips the image, and printed on my transfer sheet. Then just folow the directions on the iron-on packaging. Why is he backwards? Because I didn't read the instructions first that tell you NOT to flip the image. Oh well.

So this is for Rhys, and I hope to post the girls' gifts next week. This also meets the following challenge: All Sorts Challenge - #42 Just For Men

I love the card with the embellies! Adore that T-shirt & am glad to know I am not the only one that does not read directions all the way! I would have never guessed that it was backwards!
