Oh Norm!  Can’t you just see him sitting on the beach somewhere?????  I decided to use him for a birthday card….I believe he has had a couple of those “beach” drinks.  LOL!  He is such a cute character!


I stamped him using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored him with my Copic Markers.


I used the little coconut glasses from My Favorite Things stamp set Penguins in Paradise.  I thought they would be perfect for this little scene that I was creating….I know he was thirsty just sitting there!

Instead of using my Copics to color the background, I sponged it using a couple of different colors of ink from Stampin Up.  For the sand, I just dabbed the paper with my sponge to get the “gritty” effect of the sand.


The sentiments are from Tim Holz, Crazy Talk.  I just love all the words and phrases in the set!  I used an older Stampin Up die set called Word Bubbles to stamp my sentiments on.  I popped the sentiments up using dimensionals.


I cut the scene using Avery Elle’s Wonky Stitches die to cut the scene out.  I just love this die set.  I mounted the scene on some kraft card stock and I was done!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

    I think I have met many a Norm!! As well as your colouring (of course, every time) I love the humour in this. It looks a bit like he has had so many cocktails he really needs to ask the question!
