It's Adventure Time!

Just something fun for today's post - my daughter went to a friend's birthday a little while back, and needed a card.  Normally she just raids my samples for something suitable (rejecting many because they're just "too flowery".  I like flowers).  This time the card was for a boy, and I definitely didn't have anything to hand that she was willing to use.

So we put our heads together and came up with this ... ask just about any teenager who this is, and they'll know.  For those of you without kids in the right age group (ie. from 2 up to 20 or even older, apparently), this is Finn, the hero of the animated series Adventure Time.

We had a lot of fun making this.  The face is hand drawn and coloured with markers (including a White Chalk Marker from the current Occasions Catalogue for the teeth).  The hat is hand cut, with the Extra-Large Oval punch for the hold through which the face shows.  The background colours are, of course, reflecting the shirt and shorts that Finn wears.

I wonder if I'm brave enough to try to make a Jake card next time?
