Paper Smooches - 4 Color Challenge

I think I may be losing it ... lost, or forgotten posts.  Missed challenges.  Photos taken, but never edited!  This little card, made for my grandson's 10th birthday, was intended for the Paper Smooches 4 Color challenge.  I know, it isn't a P.S. gator - but doesn't he play so well with my wonderful new Paper Smooches frame?  At any rate, he's being sent over ... Kim, and Savannah are going to forgive me, I'm sure of it!

Pardon my terrible coloring... it was intentionally done this way - it is for a kid, who LOves to draw, and use my supplies.

Wish you could see his jelly-rolled teeth!

My four colors are: two shades of alligator green, and two shades of aqua! 

By the way ... Sam LOved it!  in fact here are his own words:

"It's awesome ... but then I pretty much think any card you make is awesome, Grammy."  LOve that kid... he's definitely in the will.

LOVE! I think your "child-like" coloring is adorable! And so's that kid that received it...loved his sentiment! (PS Can I have him?)

You are so funny, Michele! And, I think Sam is really special! Such a cute card, and perfect for a 10 year old boy...Love it to pieces!

Well you have just aced my achillies heel...a boy card. Man cards require effort, but male children...yikes I'd rather run a mile. Fortunately my nephews and Godson are all well into their teens and beyond. I can almost deal with that.

Of course he loved it, it's so CUTE!! Love the plaid and the cake balancing gator. We have a funny saying in our family about being Velcro-ed in and out of the will LOL!! Gotta love my crazy kin. Oh, and by the way...I agree with Sam about your awesome cards ;)
