Nana Vic's Vickie Quickies

So if any of you have ever gone to Nana Vic's blog you will know that she does what's called the Vickie Quickie every Friday...Thursday night if you live in North America...it is an event that is looked forward to by one and all. Well, over the last little while there have been a few of us that have started having little gatherings "in front of Vickie's place". And I guess between Vickie and Tracy, they decided that Vickie should be allowed to attend these parties instead of coming in from work at the end (great idea ladies :D). So this week Vickie has decided to host the party and for the last few days there have been games, and questions on what to have at the party...who's bringing what...or what they are wearing...the theme is blue. Vickie has rented a tent and there is lots of food...so if you would like to join us you can find us here. But there is a catch...this time we all must bring a birthday card for a boy/guy, using one of Vickie's images, as our admittance fee. So this is mine. It is entitled only Newspaper. I have made it for a sister to give to her brother.
I used SU Olive paper and an designer paper from the local Dollar Giant. The white paper is from Michaels. It was colored with SU watercolors and Crayola pencil crayons. The sentiment I found on Splitcoast Stampers. The brads are ornage brads I got from Michael's.

I got the sentiment for the inside also from Splitcoast Stampers...it reads And I'm laughing cuz there's nothing you can do about it!
Hope to see you all at the party!

Definately worth waiting for! Love how you colored him - his little "area" almost looks real and love the cutout corners. Fabulous sentiment, too! Have fun at the party!!

Thanks Saraa...I'm a little confused about it right now though...in the picture that I have on my computer you can tell that I colored his skin...in this one it just looks like I left it white...
