From the hands of babes...Nolan's Monster


When I was browsing my google reader, I saw this adorable card made by Mel - Mel Stampz ; she was so excited about a monster image she came across on Tracey's blog Fred, She Said drawn by her 10 yr-old son Nolan. Isn't it adorable? She has it for free to download. She said she would give Nolan 20 cents per card others make with his image. You can download here - just link your card back to her post and don't forget to give Nolan some love so he is encouraged to draw more!

I made my card based on CPS Sketch 71 with my inspiration point being my great ribbon with blues & green I got from Sweet Carolina. I colored my monster with prismacolor pencils & baby oil and the greeting is from Melanie's Cuddles & Hugs set by Gina K - thought it went perfectly with it. This monster reminds me of my all-time favorite kids book Where the Wild Things Are. What does it remind you of??

Hi Donna, I saw this on Mel Stampz blog too and had the same thought as you re: Where the Wild Things Are. I emailed Nolan and told him I that he was giving Maurice Sendak competition!
