The other day when I was waiting for the CE and stickles to dry on my Bloggers Challenge Watercoloring card, I had stamped this guy a few more times and started coloring. This card came together quickly as it is pretty simple. I got a little carried away with the dotted border...I am not good at the unscientific aspect of doodling! I am doodle challenged!

Thanks for all you nice comments yesterday re: my sketch bloopers. It's nice to know that I am not alone in my stamping escapdes! :)

Thanks too for your kind comments re: Declan. It is not often that I get a picture of him somewhat smiling! Usually, when I point my camera at him, he gives me the "bug off" look. Or runs. Or both. For those of you that are newer to my blog Declan has a dual diagnosis of Down Syndrome and PDD-NOS. In a nutshell PDD-NOS (in our case) is "almost autism". Declan meets most of the criteria for autism but not enough. PDD is the family in which autism falls under along with Aspergers and a couple of others....but Declan doesn't exactly match any of the subcategories...so NOS= Not Otherwise Specified. Declan can be quite a challenge. He can also be really smart, funny and sweet! Declan can be a PITA and a little bugger...he can make some days miserable. Just like anyone else he has good days and bad days. Just like anyone else he cannot be stereotyped.


Have a Terrific Tuesday!

Your card is just really really cute! That little guy is painted so well and the colors are wonderful. Declan sounds like he is very typical in a lot of ways and also has some special needs too. Thanks for sharing about Declan.
