My Handy Man


Good Morning!
Today I have a tale of two Ians for you! Haha.
I started working with Handy Ian (from The Greeting Farm!) last night and upon finishing the coloring, I had a whim to give him a five o'clock shadow. But then I couldn't decide if I liked it or not. AND then...as I stared more and more I convinced myself the facial hair looked more and more like a disease rather than a bit of stubble. Ha! We're so hard on ourselves, aren't we! So, voila...I made two Ians. I think in the end I am more fond of the clean shaven Ian, so I'm glad that I second guessed myself. But just for kicks, I've also posted manly man Ian too. :)

I hope you have a WONDERFUL day today! I'll be back Thursday with a new Busy Beauties Challenge and I'll hope you'll join me for that!


Deets:
Stamps: The Greeting Farm Handy Ian
Paper: Cosmo Cricket Lil Man, Boyfriend, SU Real Red, Dusty Durango, Mat Stack Brights
Ink: Copics

ROFL, Kadie! They are both cute, but if I *had* to choose - clean-shaven Ian would get my vote.
The card is adorable. Love the big button.

Okay, my word verification is "redogly" which I am reading as re: dog-ly. So, how are your pooches getting along?

Amazing! I have never colored a large stamp like your man, but I know who to contact when I need to learn!
I love your story on the facial hair! Too funny!

I'm such a sucker for a man that is a little rough around the edges and has dark hair. You colored this Ian up perfectly. He is one hot cutie!
