Please, everyone. He's tired of your complaints.



Afterall, he's doing the best he can! :D
Haha! Hi everyone, can you believe we're slowly creeping up on the long weekend? Woohoo!
And speaking of slow, I just love this new guy from The Digi Shack. Isn't he so sweet? He is another one of those that you wish would turn in his retirement papers but alas, swaps can only travel through snail mail so it's necessary for him to do his best.
I wanted to use him for TDS' new challenge this week. It's not a sketch, but a fabulous color combo of:
Bashful Blue
Black
Taken withTeal
Gray (optional)

I have to confess I was stumped! I haven't had Tw/Teal cs in my paper stash for a long time. I'm not a rich regal kind of girl (literally, haha!) but remembered that I had a teal-ish copic that I could use on his old mailbag. I think that's one of my letters falling out of it btw.

Here is the inside of my 3x3:

I plan on making a few of these for SCS swap hostesses. I simply used the slot punch on the inside to hold those extra stamps that they request for the return.
I hope you plan on joining us this week! Toni is so super generous (must be that Aloha spirit) and always gives away great happy prizes. Click HERE to see the details and all the wonderful cards/projects that the girls did with this combo. :D Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!
*Love and Aloha*
