Aloha Kona

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I didn't get a chance to post yesterday. Busy day with some other things including a 2 hour dentist appointment for all the kids to have their teeth cleaned.
I also posted a recipe yesterday for Recipe Thursday: Deep Fried Chicken Nuggets. Click the link and check it out!
My card for today is one that I can't decide if I really like or not. I think somehow these papers from Basic Grey just don't match well with the fun Kona image from OCL. I don't know...what do you think? I used Kraft, Dark Brown, and some greens and rusty orange from my scrap pile to coordinate with the pattern paper. I stamped Kona with Memento ink in Rich Cocoa and then filled him with various Copic Markers. I used Petite Scalloped Circle Nestabilities for the mats behind him. I took a couple of close-up photos of Kona and the distressing around the dark brown piece.
If for nothing else, it makes a cute boy card for someone!
So, just a quick post for today. Thanks for stopping by and sharing some of your time with me.
