Isn't this little guy just the cutest?? He is from Penny Black and he is called "Fly Away". He is actually for Digi Doodle Shops Best Challenge for last week which was "Distressed" but will work equally well with this weeks challenge of "Write Me a Message".
The paper I used is from Cosmo Cricket and I think it just lends itself to the whole distressed feel. The distressing was carried out on the sentiment. He was colored with Copics and cut out with Nesabilities.
There is actually a little story associated with the purchase of this stamp and if your interested... read on ; )
I recently lost my father to luekemia. It was a short and tragic battle and I wouldn't wish that kind of heartache on anyone. But... if there is a glimmer of sunshine in that whole cloudy event it is that I was blessed to adopt my dads best friend and his wife as my new aunt and uncle. We spent a lot of hours together at my dads bedside both in the hospital and then in hospice. My dad and he shared a love of RC airplanes. I came across this stamp and new I just had to create it for Blaire because the dog actually looks just like his dog PeeWee too!! Below is a pic of my dad with his RC airplane, or I should say, ONE of his airplanes.. lol.
God Bless and thanks for stopping by!
