Well, when I saw Cath post the Spectacular Spectacles Challenge over at The Moxie Fab World, you had better believe I wasn't ABOUT to miss out on this fun opportunity to play! You see, I'm one of the cool kids. I wear glasses. I have worn them since I was a sophomore in high school. And, quite frankly, I may have been the first high school kid to have the doctor tell me I REALLY needed glasses and the proceed to CELEBRATE! I had always wanted them. I loved them. And I STILL love them. People often ask why I don't get contacts and the answer is simple - I love wearing glasses! I like the way I look in them and I think they suit me quite well...so...I am playing along as one of the cool kids this time around! YAY!
*ACK!* Totally fun!!! Okay, so the paper is from the the Fancy Pants Off to School collection, which, by the way, I totally and completely love. Just say'n. The stamps are from the super cute Appetizer Set from Gourmet Rubber Stamps called Daddy-O. I love this cute 'dad' image and the crown just makes me SMILE!!! The ribbon is May Arts, and as for that FREAKING AWESOME pair of specs? Yup. Totally a brad from The Eyelet Outlet! I KNOW, RIGHT??? Totally. Just say'n. Oh...and the pack comes with round Harry Potter style glasses, too. You need them. Just say'n.
I used StazOn to stamp on the gold glitter paper and then cut the crown out from that. The head/shirt part is stamped on white carstock and paperpieced onto the background, where I also stamped the image to get the fun little 'shine' do-dads on the sides. He's looking pretty fly, if you ask me. (WHOA! 90's flashback anyone? HA! Fly!!! HAHAHA!)
I cut a small pair of glasses from the Fancy Pants paper and used it as an accent with a bit of foam tape! I love it! Just a little piece of fun to add the finishing touch! I folded the ribbon to create the bow. I really like this look for some cards!
So...there you have it... all the cool kids wear glasses, you know. Just say'n.
